Valuation grouping code (VGC)

Valuation grouping code is a key to differentiate account determinations with respect to valuation area.

Where we group together one or more valuation areas that have same account determination attributes

Say

Company Code: 2000

You have five valuation areas (plants): 2100, 2200, 2300, 2400, and 2500

As per business process requirement you need two types of account determinations with respect to valuation area (VA).

2100 and 2200 share same account determinations wrt valuation area (VA).

2300, 2400 and 2500 share same account determination wrt valuation area (VA).

So your solution can be

Company Code

VALUATION AREA (VA)

VALUATION GROUPING CODE (VGC)

2000

2100

0001

2000

2200

0001

2000

2300

0002

2000

2400

0002

2000

2500

0002

This will help you to maintain account determinations for two account grouping codes rather to maintain five account determinations to respective valuation areas (plants)

Hence 2 VGC is simpler and better than 5 VA,

obviously at the end of the day you may have 20+ valuation areas or so.

Or for your requirements as of all plants share same account determination attributes

Company Code

VALUATION AREA (VA)

VALUATION GROUPING CODE (VGC)

2000

2100

0001

2000

2200

0001

2000

2300

0001

2000

2400

0001

2000

2500

0001

Note: It is mandatory to maintain VGC. As VA cannot be assigned directly to account determinations.

Even if you have only one valuation area, it should be assigned to a VGC.
