Costing run error message CK 172 No Cost Est Exists


Hello, my client is executing CK40N for a raw material item and get the warning message. The RM item is maintained on moving average and is being costed for the first time. in the costing tab the the with quantity structure option is selected. At the time of creation the user manually entered the standard price additionally the price control is maintained as V.

My understanding that the message displayed during the costing run is because the item is a Raw Material therefore does not have an associated BOM from which the cost estimate can be derived, so SAP warns the user that the cost estimate cannot be found from the quantity structure. Is my understanding correct?

The next questions is what happens if we mark and release the cost for the item, will the moving average price be taken as the standard price ? Finally the user maintains that there are other raw materials that are set up in the same way but the costing run does not generate this error, so the question why does it happen now? Is it because this if the first time the costing run is executed?

Any help will be appreciated, thanks
