Material price changes in parallel valuation

Hi experts,
i have an issue with Material Ledger. in our client organisation, ML is active and there are materials with price determination indicator set to 3 and with  price control indicator 'S' in the material masters.
However over a period of time, the parallel valuation for most materials display different values. it is essentially due to lack of knowledge on the part of users and indiscrete use of CKMM for change of price control indicator from 3 to 2 and vice versa.
Now the business is serious to correct this situation. My questions in this regard are;
        a. what is the best source (table name) from down loading the material prices in different valuation views for a given period
        b. what precautions should we need to take to make changes (manual changes or mark and release of standard cost estimates) for these materials for all the valuation views to the prices ( i have gone through the SAP note 190707.
        c. what will be implications of making such changes on the financial balances of the organisation.
Please give me a comprehensive picture of these aspects as monetary value at stake is quite significant for the client.
Regards,
Rao

a. Use CKMLHD & CKMLCR
b. Make Price Determination Binding in OMX1, once you are done with your changes in CKMM
c. CKMM program tells you whats the financial impact...still you want to play safe...get a copy of production and try it out to see the impact

  • BAPI_MATVAL_PRICE_CHANGE - Material price change - Error

    Hello Friends,
    I am using the BAPI function module ''BAPI_MATVAL_PRICE_CHANGE' ' for Mass
    material Price changes. I am giving the following as input parameters
                       material
                       valuation area
                      price date
                      prices
    I am not giving values for valuation type since we are not maintaining Valuation type
    for any material in our company.
    But the program is throwing Dump error " Valuation type need to be maintained".
    What is the corrective action ?
    In BDC for the same material price change in MR21, i am able to upload data even
    without giving valuation type.
    Hari Prasath.S

    Hi,
    check the material price changes made from MR21, it may have some default value set for valuation type if no it was not given.
    You might have to pass this default value to the bapi!

  • Peculiar peoblem regarding the Material Price Change Posting MR21

    Dear Experts,
    I have got a peculiar peoblem regarding the Material Price Change Posting.
    The transaction Used is MR21.
    When the document was posted then the system has generated 2 Accounting documents one in Fiscal Yr 2007 and the other in 2008.
    In 2007 document posting date 31.03.2008 the a/c entry was RM Inventory A/c Debit to Consumption A/c Credit. This entry is ok . But the system has simultainously generated another document with posting date 01.04.08 and here the document has the reverse entry ..... RM Inventory A/c Credit to Consumption A/c Debit.
    Both the document was generated against a single Price Change Document. Both of then (A/c Docs) have the same number.
    I am unable to find any justification or any solution to this issue .....
    This issue has a high priority as ma client has to prepair their quaterly Balance Sheet.
    So Please help me out ..... save me.......

    Hi,
    Go to SPRO > MM > Valuation and Account Assignment > Configure Price Change in Previous Period/Previous Year > here check whether "Price carr.over" field is active for your Company Code.
    It has following implications;
    Price change: carried over from previous to current period: - Indicates whether price changes in the previous period or previous year are to affect the prices in the current period.
    Use: - When you select this field, the price change is also valid for the current period.
    If you do not select this field, the price changes in the previous period or previous year have no effect on the prices in the current period.
    Note: - Please note that if you select this field, thus changing the price for the current period, it is not possible to reverse this change later.

  • When material price changed (sd item conditions)

    Hi all,
    when material price changed in the time that is used in an sd order and when this order's delivery has been created..
    the order's item's material's price has been changed before invoice printed(assume item as 10 and material assume as 600300)
    i need to update that order with the new price of the material.
    Even this can be done backward. I mean you may have an order that amount is 100,000(with different item no's) and send this at 20 times and may print 20 different delivery for this order. And order can be on January and you still send the janu's order at May. Whenever you send the delivery you have to update the respective item's price not others.
    All in all i want to update the order's price item by item...
    please write any way to solve this.
    Thanks..

    Hi,
    it does not matter if the BADI is already implemented. You can add your additional logic there. If you put break points in all methods of BADI implementation and run ME2xN then you will see when is each method called. You are right that here is no BADI method SET_DATA. What I meant is that you get a reference to PO item (type IF_PURCHASE_ORDER_ITEM_MM) in BADI method PROCESS_ITEM. This interface has to methods GET_DATA and SET_DATA. Using these methods you can get current item fields and change them according to your needs.
    Cheers

  • Getting a material Price change in a certain period

    Hi everyone,
    I would like to seek your help regarding a problem I have in MM module. I am not an MM person but I need something that came from MM module.
    What I need is the price change of a material in a certain period. Is there any FM that I can use to do this? I need it to compute the ratio how a component material affects the price change of the header BOM material. So if we check the FI document posted for the header BOM material price change, explodes it and check if the components of that material had also undergone a price change in that period.  So how will I check the price change done on that component material?
    Thank you.

    Hi,
    I need to compute ratio so I need the price change. In the report, you need to drilldown first to see the document.
    thank you.

  • Standard report for material price change documents

    Hi Friends,
    Is there a standard report which lists all the material price change document?
    To view the document individually t-code CKMPCD can be used, but I need a report which lists all the documents for a specified period of time.
    Thanks a lot for all the efforts.
    Regards,
    Shilpi

    Hi,
    I do not know a standard report but an infoset+query created based on logical database BRM and BKPF-AWTYP = PRCHG (price change), BKPF-BUDAT (posting date),... and some BSEG-fields will give you the posted amounts. The original document (=corresponding price change document) number can be seen in BKPF-AWKEY.

  • Material price change information

    Hi,
    Is there any table which provides the material price change information in company code currency and group currency value? I need to findout list of materials which has price discrepencies. I can use MBEW and CKMLCR but the problem is some materials doesn't have the cost estimates and CMLCR is not much usefull in this scenario
    I really appreciate your input.
    Thanks
    Reddy
    Edited by: beri reddy on Jan 27, 2011 9:38 PM

    Hi Beri Reddy,
    You can check with the below:
    "S_ALR_87013182- Transaction History for a Material". You will be able find the Standard and Actual Price, MM Material Price Change, Price change by rleasing of new standard price, ML Settlement, etc.
    "S_ALR_87013181- Material Ledger Data Overal Several Periods". You will be able find the Standard Price, Actual Price, Price Varinace absolute, Price variance %.
    You try with Query using tables (CDHDR & CDPOS) or Z development.
    The logic for the development:
    CDHDR-OBJECTCLAS = MATERIAL
    CDHDR-OBJECTID (Material No)
    There are other fields like User id, date and time, t-code, etc.
    By passing the above details pick CHANGENR from the same table CDHDR.
    And pass the above value in table CDPOS-CHANGENR
    CUKY
    New value
    Old value
    You have mentioned that "some materials doesn't have the cost estimates".
    Are these materials are RM, SFG & FG?
    Are these materials are part of BOM or not?
    If my understanding is correct that few of materials which has price discrepencies, to analyze these type of issues the better to use the below t-codes:
    -CKMTOPPRICEDIF - Materials with Largest Moving Price Difference
    -CKMTOPSTOCKVAL - Materials with Highest Inventory Value
    Let me know if you need more details.
    Thanks & Regards,

  • Split valuated material price change at header level (without val. Type)

    Hi All,
    Need to change Split valuated Material Price at Header level (without val. type).
    In MR21 valuation type is mandetory for split valuated material.
    Please suggest on changing Material price without val. type.
    Thanks

    You have to advise the users who create accounting views to enter a valid price when they create a material master. Maybe you need to make use of the user exit to prevent saving when no price (or a dummy 0,01)  is entered.
    It is not possible to change the header price with any SAP given transaction, as it could cause inconsistencies if you dont take care about the stocks at valuation type level.
    you may have to deveope an own report on own risk. I personally have the opinion that it is more secure to post stock and reverse it again (which just creates to accounting documents that equalize each other, no remaining value anywhere) than going the risk with an own program to screw up the valuation of a material  in general
