Freight Purchase order and Account Key

Former Member

Hi All,

I am trying to create Material purchase order with freight conditions.

I am performing the below steps

1) Create Material purchase order with vendor, i am manually inserting the price for freight condition type and inserting a different freight vendor in the Freight conditions.

2) I have created new account key for freight purchases and inserted the account key against the freight condition type in Pricing procedure

3) I have added a G/L account for freight account key in OBYC

4) When i do GR the freight value is reflecting as price difference (PRD), i want this to hit the freight account. I am using Material Ledger type of valuation.

5) I am unable to do invoice (MIRO) for freight vendor, i get a message saying balance not zero.

Let me know where i am going wrong, or is there any other setting that i have missed out.

Awaiting your inputs here.

Please check the check box for accuruls in freight condition type in M/06 code and also maintain the account key FR1 and accuruls in FR1 in pricing in M/08.

Go for the MIRO for the freight vendor separately.

In order to be able to also choose this freight condition in MIRO, your condition type shall have the cond. category B (delivery costs) in trs M/06.

Remember also that if you create the PO with reference to some other document (PIR, contract, another PO), then the condition records are copied to the new PO and the customising changes are not read. The same happens if the system automatically copies the conditions from the previous PO even if you haven't specified this explicitly.

You can see the condition category that is actually assigned to the condition in your PO by selecting this condition and choosing "Condition detail" beneath the table.

You may have to maintain account key and accural key in the schema. for accrual key enter your freight clearing account and for account key ener the account for the purchase account of valuation class

Select Check Mark Accrual Key in the Condition type of Freight ( in Pricing Schema ) M/06 and assign the relevant account key and accruals FR1 in Pricing Schema (M/08) .

You would also need to choose the vendor while making PO (in Item Detail Tab) for the cost of freight to be charged to the Vendor.

Hope this helps,

Best regards
