linkage between valuation class and material type

Hello Friends,

To fulfill one of the requriement, we need to identify the valuation class on the basis of material type. However the setting available in Material Management-Accounting Determination -

Material Type -> Account Category->Valuation Class

For the above setting, in the current configuration is defined aa one account category having multiple valuation class, this assignment is not solving our need. Hence we would like your inputs to understand whether any other place in the standard configuration we maintain a one to one raltion between material type and the valuation class other than above.

Thanks in advance for your valuable inputs

Best Regards,

    There is no other place...You have to maintain all the settings at the given place...

    You can create your new entry and make the proper assignment there...

    At OMSK you can create a new Aref assign one to one valuation class...and then later to the material type...

    Futher settings check at OBYC...

    You can assign valuation calss to the only one account cat reference. But where ever your assigning this account cat reference to the material types, then for all those material types this valuation class is applicable.

    There is no standard settings to control 1 to 1 relation ship between material type and valuation class.

    To achieve this,

    Maintain one valuation calss to the account cat reference and assign this reference to only one material type and don't assin this cat reference to any material types. In this way only, you can achieve your requirement.

    Only an artificial code which is account category reference allows flexibility in linking material types with valuation classes & can be checked in t.code: OMSK. All valuation classes needed for you is assigned to respective G/L account for posting in OBYC t.code. You can cross check you active Valuation Classes in executing MB5L t.code & in report can check the respective inventoried material type posting ( with G/L).
