Billing CO-PA KE 348 Error Message


Hi Gurus,

We got an error message in billing with message KE 348. The material type used in the billing item has only quantity update (no valuation update), the materials accounting and costing views does not exist. I dont want the item to be valuated and get error message. I want it to be posted to FI and COPA document without valuation

For the same materials, another operating concern in the same live system work without problem. I could not see the difference in customizing. What should be done for passing this control?

Message no. KE348


In Profitability Analysis (CO-PA), the system tried to valuate a line item by looking for a product cost estimate for product "XXXXXX" using the plan period indicator.

To do this, the system has to read the valuation segment ("MBEW") of the material master. This segment does not exist in valuation area XXXX.

Display material, View: Costing

The system tried to read the product cost estimate according to costing costing key XXX as defined in the CO-PA Customizing settings.

System Response

The document cannot be processed.


Contact your system administrator.
