Message no. M8783


By mistake the MIRO was post at a very higher value then MAP.

afterwards the COGS also got booked with higher value,

Next time the GR was made at the correct value and hence the MAP got corrected as the stock was not their.

Now the problem is we have a MIRO (IV) doument with the very higher value, now if we are trying to reverse the same we are getting the following error

Message no. M8783- Moving average price for material is negative: XXXXXXXXXXX/ WERKS

As the system is revering with the Higher value- hence the present one is getting changed to - ve.

What can be work arounds to correct the same, without much of the a/c entries.

Regards, Niti Narayan

    first of all you cannot solve a valuation problem without accounting postings, that is just unavoidable in an integrated system.

    you have to increase the MAP with MR21 to a value that is high enough to get around this error message, then cancel the invoice, which will again effect the MAP, and finally correct the MAP again with MR21 to the price you want.

    Of course all this price changes will create accounting documents.

    Or you try to issue all your quantity, then cancel the invoice, SAP will then probably post against a difference account, subsequently chekc the MAP, and bring the stock back in.
