Release of Cost Estimate - Error associated with posting period

Former Member

I am not sure whether this is the right place to post question on Release of Cost Estimate (CK24), if not please advice

In current period, when we are doing release of a cost estimate in CK24 for a

given material, we are noticing no cost being released. In the logs, it is

mentioned as


Company code 3000: Release too late

Message no. CK156


Company code 3000:

The end of period 007 is 09/30/2010. This, however, has been exceeded. Only cost estimates from the current period can be released.

System Response

No cost estimates are released from company code 3000.


To release cost estimates from company code 3000, you must choose the current posting period.


Based on the log, checked what is the current posting period based on

good reciepts (mvt. type 101) which we did yesterday, and the posting date is

07/20/2011 (mm/dd/yyyy), which is insync with what we are maintaining in CK24 (07/2011)

Question: Even though maintaining right posting period (Month - July, Year - 2011)

in CK24 for cost release, what could be the reason behind an error message

Note: With Posting period/fiscal year - 07/2011,_marking_ is successfull without

NO error log

As per the below message it is clear that the Cost Estimate Validity Date i.e. Costing Date From and Costing Date to is 01.09.2010 to 30.09.2010.

Please check your cost estimate from CK13N also the date control of your costing Variant.

Please note the there are two steps for Updating the Cost on Material.

1. Marking: This will update Future Price in Costing 2 Tab of material, this can be done for any period

2. Release : This will move Future price to Current price in Costing 2 Tab, but this can be done only for current period.

So please check your Cost Estimate Date Control.

Hope this helps.
