Costing run - difference between CKMLCP and CK40N


Once Material Ledger has been activated for actual costing in a Plant, do we need to run costing run only using CKMLCP. Can we use CK40N as usual to determine the future price.

My question is can we use CK40N to plan future price, though ML and actual costing activated in a Plant Z.

The requirement is ML and actual costing is only for Plant Z and this configuration should not disturb Global template.

Could you suggest some solution please?

Thanks.. Ashok

    CKMLCP is to calculate the actual cost of the material (ML costing run)

    CK40N is to generate the standard cost estimate for a material

    The sequence in ML should always be the following:

    1) Create and mark cost estimate in period 1 for period 2

    2) Do the period shift from period 1 to 2

    3) Release the cost estimate

    4) Do ML period end closing of period 1

    A costing release with CK40N or CK24 also contains a price change of the material. And this price change is not allowed if ML is active with price determination 3 and you already performed transactions to the material during the current period.

    From this position, the only possible workarounds at this point are:

    - Postponing the costing release to next month

    - Reversing transactions and usage of note 574930

    - Using the Late Price Change (LTPC) option from note 555176

    • Hello Udo,

      we have the same requirement : according to global template Standard costing needs to be used but according to local law Actual costing must be used. How can be both realized for a Company code? The contraolling area is the same; Group currency is maintained in OB22, leading ledger is according to Group USGAAP, and the non-leading ledger is the Local Gaap. The fiscal year variant of the company code is year dependent and deviates from calender months, but for the non-leading ledger representing the local GAAP fiscal year varaint K4 (calenderdependent) is used.

      Is it possible to have configured both Standard costing for the Group (USGAAP) and actual costing for the local GAAP within a Company code?

      Thanks in advance for your Response.
