Hi friend,

What u need to do is:

1. create another costing variant

2. the valuation strategy in the valuation variant need to be changed to accommodate the future estimated price. U may have this future price of the materials in any one of the Planned Prices fields (either 1 or 2 or 3) in the materila master costing variant

3. the costing type can be changed so that the price will not be updated

alternatively, u can keep the costing type allowing the price update.

an this price update can be done to any field other than the standard cost field. So that you can use is for reporting purpose etc.

Hope this will answer your question.

Please award points suitably

Best Regards
