Updating actual cost of material consumption in production order


We are facing, once in a while, a situation in which material consumption, for a production order, was done for an incorrect actual cost.

In a case that we cought it early, we delete the material document, change the price in MR21 and do again the material consumption.

If we cought it late, but the period is still open, and we already have a lot of production orders with the same problem, we change the price in MR21, do another financial transaction (FB01/ FB50) for the specific item + GL account and we expect that in cost analysis, in the production order, we will see a correction line for the relevant item with the right actual cost, or even at the same existing line of the item to see the right cost, but no, we see an additional line, with the correct actual cost but only for the GL account, without the item number.

Maybe somebody know how to do it right, so I'll see in the cost analysis of the production order aline with the correct actual cost for a specific item + GL account?

Thanks a lot,
