Change to cost component structure with active ML


Good day,

My client has requested a change to their cost component structure. We have the Material Ledger active with sales order stock and WIP revaluation.

I have implemented this change in our test system by creating a new structure with a validity equal to beginning of new month. When it comes to posting ML closing entries for old month, I am getting an error message and a reference to note number 1106708.

Note 1106708 explains how the error message can be avoided and we can proceed with new cost component structure. However, note number 434873 strongly advices against this. Can anyone please provide some input here:

- Has anybody implemented note 1106708 and what were the results? Are you facing any problems after the change?

- What are the possible reasons for needing historical split data? If this data is not required, then we can use the MLCCS_RESET transaction to delete the old split data and proceed with the structure change.

Will appreciate any input or assistance.
