    KE27 is used to revaluate the posted data in COPA....

    Suppose you use costing variant PPC1 to calculate std cost at the start of the year... Your COGS is based on PPC1

    however, at every month end you also calculate revised std cost using ZPC1 and store it in a different field in material master... You would also like to have COGS based on ZPC1 for informatory purposes....

    In this case, you use KE27... When you execute KE27, you can choose which value fields you would like to revaluate....

    Settings needed for the same can be simply said as - Whatever settings you have done for Point of Valuation (PV) 01 in COPA IMG, the same needs to be copied for PV = 03.... i.e.

    1. Create a new valuation strategy by copying 001 and assign it to PV 03

    2. In KE4J or KEPC - Assign your costing keys to PV = 03.. Copy the existing PV=01 entries and change PV=03

    3. In KE4R - Assign Value fields to PV = 03.. i.e. copy the existing entries and change PV = 01 to PV = 03... Here, it is recommended that you use separate value fields for Cost Comp Split than your existing value fields.. Else, you wont be able to compare the new COGS value with original value...

    4. The revaluated amount is posted with a different indicator... i dont recollect if this is a separate record type or what... You can check this when you post revaluation..

    Hope it is clear
