Costing Issue

Hii Experts!!!

My client has changed a material (Say X) type from HALB to FERT. Material X was a part of material Y (FERT), which they want to sell out from the company. User had already run the costing for the material Y. Now, we are not able to release the cost of material X as system throws an error that

"MATERIAL HAS A RELEASED COST ESTIMATE". But if user try to backflush the quantity it throws an error that -

"EXISTING STANDARD COST ESTIMATE CANNOT BE USED". If I check in help, it suggest that -


This error appears under the following circumstances:

The existing standard cost estimate cannot be used for backflushing activities as the repetitive manufacturing profile was not maintained correctly when the standard cost estimate was carried out.

The standard cost estimate must come from product costing. Other cost estimates (such as base object controlling) are not possible.

Please help!!!
