I need to Receive a material from the customer(Vendor) , to do job work.

I created Material with material type non valuated.

I created the customer as vendor and i have assigned the customer no to this vendor record

I tried to create a PO for this material, with Acc Ass K and also i have selected Free of charge Check box

In Account assignment tab system is asking for G/L Account No i have selected customer material consignment no: 12345

Here, the problem is why system is asking for this account no, it is a non valuated material any ways no value is going to update for this purchase?

Can i make this G/L account field as Optional? only for this Doc type in PO i need to make it Optional?

Is it possible in SAP

    Hi ,

    The G/L account is coming because of the account assignment category K.

    For the K, cost centre and G/L account are mandatory.

    If you want to chnge plz chk settings of K ( SPRO-- > MM-- > Purchasing-- > Account assignment __ > K). Also cheak the account modifier used for K like VBR and for this what are the G/L accounts assigned in OBYC.

    Please enter that G/L account.

    The materail is non valuated but thr must be some entries where thy shud be accounted for.

    Hope this is useful

      Try the following

      1. Create a valuated material for the Job work material you are receiving from the customer. Maintain the Price indicator V & do not maintain any price in the material master.

      2. Now create a free goods PO against this material with your customer as vendor

      3. You can receive the material into stock without value.

      4. Also since no price is maintained in the material master it wont affect your valuation during further movements.

      Thanks & Regards,

    If you have selected the "free of charge" indicator, I dont think you need to enter any account assignment category . Is there any specific reason for entering "k" ? try without acount assignment
