    To change valuation class in the existing material master record, user should follow steps.

    1. For this material, stock should not be exist for the plant. Check stock levels in the MMBE transcation

    If exists, remove stock.

    2. No open documents.

    If there is any open documents ( PO's, Production orders, sales order), need to close all those documents.

    Regards

    hi,

    basically valuation class is maintained at the material type level, if the material is not split valuated,

    if it is split valuated , valuation class is maintained at valuation type level,

    if you want to change the valuation class, there should be no stock is maiantined for the material,

    and need to close the all open purchasing documents,

    you can change the valuation class through MM17 ( mass maintance ),

    reference field is MBEW-BKLAS.

    Hi Balaji,

    If you are intending to change the Valuation class for a material follow the following steps :

    1. Check if any stock exists for that material - stock should be zero.

    2. Check if any open transactions like PR,PO, STO exist.

    3. Change material valuation class through the following :

    TCode : MMAM

    Input Required : Material Number and New Valuation Class

    Execute (F8)

    That material have change from old valuation class to new valuation class.

    4. Verify the change in the Material Master - Accounting Tab.

    Hope this helps.

    With Best Regards,

    Srinivas
