Material ledger:'not allocated' variance

Dear all,

For raw material A, it issued to certain production order(say FG is B) in Apr. at the month end, I found that there are some variance(not distributed) in material A due to there is no goods receipt for production order. in May. I performed GR for B, then calculate WIP/variance and perform settlement. after that, I run CKMLCP for ML closing.

However, system can not distribute the variance which occurred in the previous month to B, this means this variance will keep in the variance account forever, and the actual cost of B is wrong.

I do not know whether this is standard SAP, our version is ECC6.0.

Is there anyone know why and how it come and settle it ?

thanks very much

    Dear Jin Ming Zhang,

    Please, check the note 908776 which explains the possible reasons for 'not distributed' and 'not allocated' price differences.

    There is no automatic procedure, but CKMVFM is a valuable tool to analyse the reason for the differences and distribute/include them.

    Best regards,

      Hi Jin Ming Zhang,

      I use the buttom "delete price limiter quantity" in the CKMVFM to distribute the value indicate in the line "not included" (in CKM3) but now I don't know where is this value. How is it allocated?

      Thanks Lia
