    Hi,

    Might be there is a transaction done with that material pls check once again..in ME2N by giving your material s input and execute and look for any documents generated for that material.

    Only reason for system not allowing to change valuation class is if theer is any transaction data on it.

    Thanks.

    HI Edward....

    All u need to check is that if there are any pending transactions / orders pending for that material A.

    You will first need to ensure that no pending transaction for that material, to be able to change the valuation class.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi,

    as you have mentioned system is not allowing you to change the valuation class.

    at that time system creates a log while changing material master. please look into that log as it will tell you which transactions are open and you need to take action on them.

    regards,

      Hi,

      For changing the Valuation class 3 checks should be done.

      1. No PO's in active state.

      2. No stock in Transit

      3. No Stock should be there for that material in that particular plant.So you can move stock to Cost center

      Once above all checks are thru then system will aloow you to change the Valuation class.

      Changing of valuation class is per material per plant.

      Hope this will help you.

      Thanks

    Hi,

    The s/m does not allows to change the existing valuation class in MMR, untill all the open doc are closed and stock is made to zero.

    Better refer the below notes it may help you.

    SAP Note 193554 - Stock/valuation data of previous

    SAP Note 160970 - Change valuation class: production order/purchase order

    Hi Edward,

    You can not change the valuation class of material only if you there is no any open PO for this Material, or Even you have any Stock left in previous period

    1 Go to MM03 and chek the stock in previous perioad, open the periood and settle the goods, then you will abale to change the Valuation class of material

    Dear Edward,

    Check for the Error log cropped by system during saving the changes done in valuation class field.

    Hope you are applying the changes through TC - MM02 in accounting view.

    Also check if the part is linked to present valuation class through GL Accounts vide chart of accounts. In such case you'll have to make the changes in chart of account. (Refer FI Consultant)

    Hi Mohsin,

    When post the good issue to cost center, it fails. Currently the valuation class does not have G/L account 20010000. How can I add the account to the current valuation class?

    Thanks.
