Assignment categories definition

I have two assignmet categories that where created by someone else.

One is called C ->

Consumption posting = V

Special Stock = Null

The other is called E ->

Consumption posting = E

Special Stock = E

I have created two PO; one with each assignement. Both have a sales order position in account assignement.

WHen creating goods receipt ->

For C -> Controlling document is associated with a cost center

For E -> Controlling document is associated with the sales order.

Could someone explain me which is the implication of each option in the deffinition of assignmet categories ?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    In the online help you have:

    consumption posting:

    Indicator: Consumption posting (Purchasing)

    Key specifying the category of consumption posting for items having this account assignment category.

    Use

    In sales-order-related production, the consumption posting field determines whether the costs of sales-order-related production are collected under a sales order item. In this case you flag the sales order item as cost- and revenue-carrying.

    The collection of costs under the sales order item is recommended in the case of complex make-to-order production. The collection of costs under the sales order item is not advisable in the case of sales-order- related mass production.

    Procedure

    To flag the sales order item as cost- and revenue-carrying, enter an "E" (settlement via sales order).

    If you do not wish to flag the sales order item as cost- and revenue-carrying, do not enter anything.

    Dependencies

    If you are working with nonvaluated sales order stock, always flag the sales order item as cost- and revenue-carrying.

    If you are working with valuated sales order stock:

    In the case of complex make-to-order production, flag the sales order item as cost- and revenue-carrying

    In the case of sales-order-related mass production, do not flag the sales order item as cost- and revenue-carrying

    The values are:

    A Asset

    V Consumption => this means you will assign it to a cost center

    E Accounting via sales order => this means you will assign it to a sales order

    U Unknown

    P Accounting via project

    For Stock indicator:

    Special Stock Indicator

    Specifies the special stock type.

    Use

    If for a material specific stocks (such as for example Consignment stock) are to be managed separately, this indicator is assigned to the stock type.

    Procedure

    Enter "E" (open oder quantity) if the material is to be delivered to sales order stock.

    I hope this helps!
