Hi,

The account category reference is an artificial code which allows flexibility in linking material types with valuation classes.. Account category reference which is linked to a material typehis & then linked with a valuation class and the GL account is linked to the valuation class. So a material type can be linked to one or more valuation classes (and hence GL Accounts) and in turn, a valuation class can be linked to multiple material types .

Hi,

Account category reference is used to gorup to gether all valuation classes for the purpose of Automatic account determination.

Now you have 4 material types. Each material type is assigned to account category reference. For each material type we can assign single valuation class or multiple valuation class.

Assign same GL account for all valuation classes which has been assigned to that material types.

Hope this will help u.

Hi,

The valuation classes allowed depends on the material type. Several valuation classes are generally allowed for one material type & a valuation class can be allowed for several material types. The links between the valuation class & the material type through the account category reference. The account category reference is a combination of valuation classes & precisely one account category reference is assigned to a material type. Better create an account category reference is created for each material type. The account category reference is, in turn, assigned to precisely one valuation class ieu2026.. Each material type has its own valuation class. If your material type is a copy of std. ROH, u can keep for one account category reference

Material type can have both single valuation class and multiple valuation classes. Multiple valuation classes are used in case where different materials are needed to be hit to different G/L accounts. If all materials are needed to be hit to same G/L account, then one valuation class is needed e.g. Material A is required to hit G/L 1, so valuation class 1 is created and attached to this material. Material B is required to hit G/L 2, then valuation class 2 is created and attached to this material and so on.

Multiple valuation classes are also required when material is split valuated.

See tx OMSK. It's relevant to automatic account determination in Inventory Management. If you want the accounts to be determined in exactly the same way as for the origional material type, then yes you can just copy it.

Hi

Group of valuation classes that the system uses

to check whether the valuation class you have entered is allowed when you maintain accounting data in a material master record the same we can assign in Account determination which group together valuation area to draw GL automatically.
