Price Gap Analysis Accounts


After running the ledger accounts are the materials which should I look to see if there was a price difference?

Theoretically, the balance should be zero, am I right?

    Hi Cristiane

    In order to be sure all prices differences were allocated to stock or cogs you have follow the posting logic from ML.

    You can check this posting logic from note 0000908737.

    For example you have to sum accounts (1) to accounts (2) and the balance must be zero.

    Also sum accounts (2) to accounts (3) and it must be zero also.

    Check OBYC or table T030 to get the accounts

    Accounts (1)

    During the periodic transactions price/exchange rate differences are recorded under different transaction keys:

    PRD ( ) Price differences from purchase order

    PRD (PRF) Price differences from goods receipt with external value from order settlement.

    KDM Exchange rate differences from goods receipts, with external value from order settlement.

    AUM Price differences and exchange rate differences from stock transfer

    AKO Price differences from stock transfer consignment stock to own

    At the end of the period, by running transaction CKMLCP, the Material Ledger settles the differences to the different receivers according to the actual movements of the period.

    Transaction CKM3 shows, how the differences were distributed to the different receivers.

    By executing the CKMLCP step 'Closing Entries' these results are posted in FI.

    The Material Ledger postings use own transaction keys for price/exchange rate difference acccounts:


    PRY Price differences from same (upper) level

    PRV Price differences from lower level

    KDM Exchange rate differences from same (upper) level

    KDV Exchange rate differences from lower level

    PRM Differences of cancelled WIP (Materials)

    PRA Differences of cancelled WIP (Activities)

    Accounts (3)

    For the offset postings the following transaction keys are used:

    BSX Inventory posting

    LKW Accruals and defer.acct.(Material ledger)

    UMB Gain/loss from revaluation

    COC Revaluation of other consumables

    Good luck
