External Procurement with a Valuated Sales Order Stock

Hi Experts,

I read the following in SAP Help,

For external procurement with a Valuated Sales Order Stock, system generates a purchase requisition from the sales order.

If you are using a valuated sales order stock, the externally procured material is assigned to inventory at the time of the goods receipt. If the sales order item is flagged as carrying costs and revenues, then when the goods issue for delivery to the customer takes place, the sales order item is debited with the costs of the externally procured material.

My question is - it says costs of external procurement is debited to sales order item when " goods issue for delivery to the customer takes place"

- but in my case, when I made the GR for purchase order (created automatically by sales order), system directly posted the procurement cost as actual costs to the sales order item. There is no delivery for sales order done still.

So actually, when should the external procurement cost be debited to sales order item -- when GR for purchase order is done (or) when goods issue for delivery to the customer takes place?

Thanks,

GAN

    It would be statistical cost not real cost, check the value type for that cost line item ,if it is 11 then it is statistical cost only. Statistical posting will happen if the Inventory account has been created as a cost element.

    The actual cost will be posted upon consuming the materials i..e, in your case goods issue for delivery.

      Hi Rafi,

      Thanks for your reply. I understand the problem now.

      Material which comes from prod order is posted statistically (value type 11) to sales order when GR for prod order is done.

      Here, the issue is about a GR for purchase order (assigned to sales order). This material purchased is not used in any production process. Its a material which is supplied to customer along with main material produced in house.

      In purchase order, I have given the consumption account (which is cost element 1). Entry was Consumption Dr and GR/IR Cr. So, this posted as actual cost to sales order.

      I should have given inventory account in purchase order (with cost element 90).

      Its a mistake of using consumption account in purchase order.

      Thanks.

      GAN.
