    there is certainly a bigger logic that controls how a movement is valuated and if it needs to create accounting entries. But it is not just one single field, rather the interaction of several settings. like the value update in OMS2, like the price control and corresponding price field in material master and value string in the movements ...

    309 is a multipurpose movement, and I am sure that even 309 can create accounting documents, but if you do nothing more in 309 than with 311, then it is just a transfer posting which changes a field which is not relevant for accounting, e.g. storage location or batch number

      Hi Nabil,

      Same as others, only the mov type code doesn't decide on the FI posting, e.g. same mat TP same plant via 309 does't generate FI but mat A TP to mat B in one plant does generate FI doc.

      I assume your question around MB5B is linked to summerization? Please check below.

      When inputting Stock Type as VALUATED STOCK in MB5B, warning message pops out:

      FI document summarization is active / the results may be incorrect

      In this system, document summarization is activated for accounting documents. On the initial screen, you set the indicator Valuated Stock.

      This can mean that report MB5B for valuated stock results in incorrect values for the start or end date. During document summarization, the system does not generate all entries in the index table BSIM between the material numbers and the accounting document items. However, these entries are required by report MB5B in order to display a complete list. This means that report MB5B cannot process all relevant accounting document items for the material.


      You should only set the Valuated Stock indicator if document summarization is deactivated for accounting documents.


      Check if you have activated document summarization:

      IMG>Financial Accounting>General Ledger Accounting>Perodic Processing>Integration>Material Management>Perform Document Summarization for Materials Management>Ref Transaction -MKPF

      4.7 is IMG>Financial Accounting>General Ledger Accounting>Business Tran>Integration>MM>Carry out summerization>MKPF

    Hi Nabil, not sure what you meant, what is the Trans./Ev. Type for your 309 material document, is it WA in MKPF?

    Logic to determine the accounting entries depends on many factors, but if your requirement is only to check whether any accounting document is associated with the material document number then you can check it in BKPF table.

    Just pass the material document number+year in BKPF-AWKEY (object key), if there are any accounting documents created, then it will give you the account document number and if it fails you can assume that the material document does not have any account document.
