CK40N - Cost estimates with errors - Error message roll-up

Good morning,

i need to roll-up error messages from components to top-level codes.

Now if a component is costed with errors (status KF) it happens that its top-level code is costed without errors (status KA).

We lose time using CS15 to check components usage in order to re-calculate all top-level codes after the error correction.

In OKKN in tab Qty Struct. there is a checkbox to be flagged in order to roll-up error messages from components to top-level codes. It's called "Transfer Active Std Cost Est. if Mat. Costed w/Errors".

I selected the flag but the system works as before: no roll-up of error messages.

Does anybody have suggestions?

Thanks,

Regards

Enrico

    Hi Enrico,

    there should be a warning message in the higher-level cost estimate which says 'Cost estimate for material & contains errors -> Planned price'. It is message CK318. This message is a 'user-defined message' and the message type can be changed in t-code OPR4_CK. Please set the message type to 'Error'.

    In addition you must change the costing variant setting "Transfer Active Std Cost Est. if Mat. Costed w/Errors" to 'not active' (do not flag the checkbox).

    Then errors in costing will be rolled-up.

    Best regards,

    Johannes

    Enrico, after set the flag, have you tried to run CK40N since the beginning again ?

    I meant since level Selection or try to create a new costing run.

    Sometimes even after setting the flag, system has already saved status before and you need to recreate the object.

      I tried through CK11N, too.

      I think that the system behaviour should be the same than CK40N.

      But no error messages roll-up.

      Shall i open an OSS NOTE? Or maybe please you have something more to suggest?

      Thanks,

      Regards

    Hi,

    There seems to be some problem with your system , as standard SAP behaviour is that , if a component is costed with error , higher level material also get KF status . i have experience this feature on my project .

    If you check F1 documentation of field , "Trasfer act std cost if mat costed with error" ., the same have been mentioned.

    If you activate , this check box , then system will automcatically transfer existing std cost , if they it receive KF status in costing run.

    therefore , you should remove this check box from costing variant , and still higher material does not get KF status , search for any oss notes or raise a message .

      Please, could you tell me something more about the system behaviour?

      In other words, i'd like to know if error messages are rolled-up wuth the same error code instead of through another generic code.

      I searched for notes nut i didn't find anything. Probably, i'll be forced to open a new message to SAP.

      Thanks,

      Regards
