We have modified our RA version (version 0) to calculate WIP for production order. Previously, all WIP balances were settled to one FI account (material consumption, labor and overheads).
In the new version, we are settling the WIP balance to different accounts depending on the origin: one account for material consumption, one account for Labor, one account for Prod output (in case of partial deliveries).
When we calculate wip (KKAO or KKA1), we have the following warning messages "RA Category WIPPR in version 0 is not settled".
It looks like orders for which WIP was calculated in the past (and which still are in status REL) have a WIP balance posted again to them (we expect no additional WIP balance on the order since WIP was already posted in a prior period and the object has the same status = REL).
Am I understanding correctly that, since we have changed the RA settings, SAP is considering there is a new WIP to post, under the new methodology?
Note that Transfer to FI accounting check box is active in OKG2 and that we have not created a new RA Version. We have simply modified the existing version.
Also, we are making the change in Jan 2012, meaning we cannot reverse the WIP balances posted in 12/2011 using CO88 (as we cannot reverse settlement from year N into year N+1).
WIP balances in 12/2011 were posted with the old method while WIP balance in Jan 2012 will be posted using the new method.
Do you have experience with this issue?
Many thanks for your help,
