Is actual costing revaluation of profitability documents possible with Margin Analysis?

Using costing based profitability analysis, it is possible to create additional value fields to accomodate the cost components resulting from an actual costing revaluation run along side the value fields for components from the standard cost estimate.

Is this alternative valuation also possible with Margin Analysis?  Or how can Margin analysis be configured to report both the standard cost components as well as the actual cost components on a profitability posting.

I would appreciate a link or reference to further details if this is possible.

Thanks

As a followup observation, Margin analysis is an improved version of account based profitability.

So if revaluation at actual prices is possible using margin analysis, what is the offsetting account(s) that is used to keep Margin analysis in sync with the general ledger

S4HANA permits us to split both cost of goods sold and productoin variances amounts into their cost components using a general ledger posting like this

Dr.  Input quantity variance   100
Dr.  Input price variance        200
Dr.  Mixed price variance      300
Cr.  Manufacturing varinces           600

If delta postings are made to Margin Analysis for the difference between standard and actual cost, what is the offsetting account.

Can anyone provide guidance of whether this is possible, and if so, where this is documented.

Thanks
