Allow empty Valuation type for stock transfers (ME21N Field BWTAR)

0 Kudos

Hi,

We want to allow an automatic batch selection for stock transfers with de delivery note document (next step from ME21N, akka VL10B and VL02N related), but its being imposible for materials with split valuation type because ME21N isn't allowing leaving this field empty and you can't type a provisional one because then you can't post goods movement (error Valuation type PROVISIONAL differs from valuation type of batch 9XXXXX).

The message is no. ME083 "Enter Valuation Type" and it's already optional.

After passing trough that, (with a direct EKPO table empty field change), now we can't post goods movement but with yet another error:

----

Use one-step procedure for transfer posting to mat. subj. to valuation

Message no. M7048

Diagnosis

In the receiving plant, the material is subject to split valuation. For this material, a stock transfer cannot be carried out using the two-step procedure.

Procedure

Use the one-step procedure (movement type 301) or a stock transfer order for the stock transfer.

----

So, looks like SAP system will make it imposible to automate a simple first in first out or first Best-Before Date first out automation for stock transfers.

Can someone look into this and how is achievable.

Very thankful for your help.

There is a SAP note describing a workaround process (unfortunately, it is a modification note): 1677707 - Determining the valuation type for stock transport orders at the time of GI. There are limitations compared to the standard process, please make sure to read the process documentation which is added as an attachment to the note.

Thanks for your answer, just edited because I was able to get the note, but I have still one question, note suggest that the valuation type will be inserted via MIGO, this shouldn't be the case, I'm reading ok or with this we will be able to automate the batch selection via VL10B or bath determination with VL02N and then make the goods post without problems?.

axellpadilla, you need to ask a colleague from your team to help you out with the access, sorry. The content in the support portal is subject to copyright, we are not allowed to distribute it.

Besides, in the note there are quite a lot of code changes (specific to the corresponding release) that you are supposed to implement to get this functionality working.

In short, the idea is that you get a new checkbox in the delivery tab of the purchase order, which allows you to bypass the mandatory valuation type and serves as a trigger for the alternative process where you specify batches (and with this the valuation type) in the outbound delivery, which are transferred to the inbound delivery.

Thanks again for the way this works!
