    The moving average price becomes the standard price , which is then used for valuation.

    You can change the type of price control by overwriting the price control indicator in the material master record with the new indicator.

    Changing the type of price control for a material does not change the value of the material stock, since in both cases the current price becomes the new price.

    But next immidiate Inventory posting or Invoice posting will be based on changed pricing control..

    Hi,

    S is standard price. In this case the material price will be constant. Whereas in V the material price will change. It will get updated in material master record. Click on additional data, you can see the updation. I hope this will help you.

    Hi,

    When you alreday ABLE to change the price control for material "A" -S to V and Material B -V to S, Then now do transactions for each material A & B and you will know & find the diference in accounting posting( MIGO, MB!A & MIRO).Nothing will happened for changing price control on stock value.

    NOTE:

    For price control V - The system valuates goods receipts with the purchase order price and goods issues with the current moving average price. The system automatically calculates the latter upon every goods movement by dividing the total value by the total stock quantity ( Total Value/Total quantity). Differences in price between the purchase order price and the invoice are posted directly to the relevant stock account if there is sufficient stock coverage. Overally you can say System calculate automatically MAP taking into consideration of GR/IR.

    For price control S- The system carries out all stock postings at a price defined in the material master. Variances in price are posted to price difference accounts. Overally you can say Standard Price is calculated without taking into consideration of GR/IR.

    Regards,

    Hi Pravanesh,

    Price control in material master are controlled by the Material types configuration in IMG activity in std sap.

    The T-code is OMS2 where you can set the price control for a defined Material type in extra control data for material types.

    You can change the price control and try to simulate for different scnerios and check how it will effect.

    Hi

    There is no change in your stock values if you changed the price control from V to S or S to V.

    When ever you are doing MIGO or MIRO at the time the posting will differ, If you maintain the V the price difference will post to the price difference account so the moving average price automatically will change.

    If you maintain S the price difference will go to the stock account.

    Thanks
