How to have a non-valuated and non-stock material

Hello Experts,

I know NLAG is the material type for Non-stock items and UNBW is the material type for Non-valuated materials.

I need a material type which is both non-stock and non-valuated.

I could not find one in std. SAP.

Either you use directly material type NLAG for your material  or you customize a material type with a name you like and which is easier to understand than the German abbriviation NLAG for Nicht-Lager Material (non-stock Material)

X-inventory managed with quantity  - value posted to cost center UNBW
--not inventory managed - value posted to cost center NLAG
-Xmaterial not quantity managed  - only value managed (only possible in Retail systemWERT

Why do you think that NLAG material would be valuated? of course it costs money if you buy it, but this value is not going to your stock account, it is posted to an expense account and cost center when you do the receipt.

Or do you mix the terms non-valuated and free of charge?
