Issue with Valuation Class and material type assignment

Hi,

During material creation, when we insert material type, related valuation class should automatically come in Valuation Class field in Accounting View.

In Configuration, we have maintained account category ref. and valuation class according to Material Type. (Through OMSK tcode).

But this will be shown in 1:1:1 case...like Material Type : Account Category Ref. : Valuation Class..

But what can I do in this scenario: -

In our company we have 10 Material Type, so we create 10 Diff. Account Category Ref.. But we have 100 Valuation classes...

How can we do it...because we want valuation class should automatically come in Valuation Class field in Accounting View.

In my case, how it is possible...

Please guide...

    In std SAP it is not possible to map 100 valuation class for 10 material type with 10 acc cat ref.

    Either you should speak with FI consultant to come out with what is possible in SAP

    Or you have to develop a z table with some key fields to determine the correct valuation class automatically. In this option also you must assign a the relevant valuation class per material type then only it is possible.

    In reality never seen a requirement for 100 Val class I think something to do with convincing the client or find a way to tackle in FI side

    Hello,

    If you have 10 material types and 100 valuation classes, how the system will come to know which valuation class to be picked up.

    First of all set up that logic and then only you will be able to solve the issue.

    Thanks,

    Hi

    In std sap you can assign 'n' number of valuation class to one account category reference, first of all you dont want to create 10 account category reference, because you can assign all the 10 material type to one account category reference ,so already you have created 10 account categoty reference, so you assign the 100 valuation class to the 10 account category reference to post different g/l account , then assign the 10 material type to either one account category reference or 10 account category differnce that is upto you.

    If you have 10 material type , material and 10 Account Category Ref. and 100 valuation class,

    system could not pick valuation class automatically because same Account Category Refassign to different valuation class .

    for automatically pick up valuation class you required to create 100 nos of Account Category Ref
