Update Result Analysis not allow for category E(Revenue)


While defining update for Result Analysis for Sales Order Costing - Controlling Area - RA Version - RA Key for WIP in Sales ORder - Line ID as Revenue - and category E(Revenue), put Secondary GL against Cost/Revenue in tcode OKG4, system shows message as :

Use only categories "A", "K", and "N" in WIP calculation

Message no. KQ115


In the valuation method, you chose WIP calculation as the results analysis type.


For WIP calculation, you can only update costs ( category K), settled costs (category A), and costs not to be included (category N [revenue], for example).

As a result while doing WIP on Sales order in tcode KKA3 system shows message as "No update of line IDs specified in CO area 0810 version 0 RA key 000004" in message no KJ208.

Here RA KEY 000004 is used for WIP on Sales Order. We have defined 4 line ids which are assigned with RA Key for WIP on Actual Cost against category K (Cost) for 3 line ids and 1 line is used with category A (Settled cost). Same way for RA key Sales Order I have to mention against category E (Revenue). But system does not allow me.

    You can't use the same WIP calculation as in PP Orders. SD Order carries revenues, therefore it will need a Revenue based method. You need to configure a new Valuation Method via OKG3. use RA type "E" (Revenue) not "F" (WIP). This method needs to be configured by SOrder's different status' i.e. REL, TECO, FNBL etc.

    Hope that helps,

      Hi Dadoni,

      In OKG3 (Valuation Method) there are two different RA Keys I have maintained. RA Key 000002(WIP of Actual Cost) which is used with production order and RA Key 000004(Result Analysis for Sales Order) is maintained with Sales Order. Both the RA Keys have common status which are REL, DLV, PREL and TECO. Is it correct or wrong staus for Sales Order WIP ? Here status number area 1> PREL, 2> REL, 3> DLV and 4> TECO.

      Kindly tell me for RA Key 000004(WIP on Sales Order) you have mentioned only 3 status which are REL, TECO and FNBL. Is it necessary to maintained more status for Sales order WIP. What will be its status number and inside parameter setting from RA Type to other indicator setting ?

      Best Regards,
