CKM3 - PPV analysis: split between exchange rate effect and price effect


I need to verify how the purchase price variance (PPV) is calculated within the Material Ledger, specifically regarding the split between exchange rate effect and price effect.

I found transaction CKM3 that display the exchange rate difference and the price difference (I think total price difference = exchange rate effect + price effect), but I still have some open points:

- How CKM3 should works? I created some documents to test this transaction (goods receipt from purchase order and its invoice) creating a PPV with exchange rate effect and price effect (both) but in CKM3 the split is not shown, only the total PPV is shown at document level.

- Is there same specific procedure to be followed? Is there other steps to be done before CKM3 is executed in order to split the PPV?

and then

- Is CKM3 the best solution to analyze the PPV within Material Ledger?

Thanks and Regards,
