Price Difference posting in Inventory through ML Settlement


When we post the invoice, planned delivery costs are posted to 'Price difference' accounts as the raw material stock is already consumer or moved to other plants.  We need the planned delivery cost get posted into the Stock account. As per the standard it is not possible, right ?

Now, we are looking the concept of Material Ledger also for achieving this requirement through periodic settlement.

However, what happens in the following cases if we activate material ledger for Raw Materials :

1. If the invoice is received in a different period than the GR period, the planned delivery costs will be posted as price difference only, right ?

2. Also, if we turn on the ML for raw materials, in the case of Production orders, variance will be posted without reference to Production order, correct ?

These situations are disadvantages against achieving our requirement.

Any comments on these points, please.
