Hello All,

Please I need help on the following scenarioa.

My BOM for a finished products contains non valuated materials. at the point of creation of invoice for the sales order of that finished product, i get a message 'document saved, no accounting document generated'. When i try to release it to accounting it gave the following error.

Error reading the material cost estimate for sales order "31"

Message no. KE292

Diagnosis

In Profitability Analysis (CO-PA), the system tried to valuate item 000010 of sales order 31 by reading the corresponding product cost estimate.

However, no product cost estimate could be found for this sales order item.

The system accessed product costing for product FG-00000003 using costing key YB3 as defined in the

CO-PA Customizing settings.

System Response

The system cannot process the document any further.

Procedure

Check your Customizing settings.

Please what can I do?

Hi,

The message appears because you have activated valuation using material cost estimate in COPA. You should check if you have a current standard cost estimate with a structure in finish good master data, screen Costing 1. Most probably you don't.

Try to make standard cost estimate calculation (CK11N), mark it and release it (CK24) with the current date.

Try again to release the invoice to FI.

Go to SE38 and enter SAPRCKMJX and execute. It will work in test systems only

The following functions are supported by this component on a limited basis:

Deactivation of the material ledger

This is only possible if the valuation area was not set as productive.

LIFO and FIFO Valuation

This only possible using one currency.

Yes, you can deactivate it in KE4U.

In ke4u go to Assignment of valuation strategy and remove the key YB3 from all point of valuation.

But you will not have the cost component split anymore in COPA.

Problem solved. all i did was remove the costing keys assigned to the material type in KE4J.
