If a user creates a material, he must enter the material's valuation
class in the accounting data. The R/3 System uses your default settings
to check whether the valuation class is allowed for the material type.
The valuation class is a group of materials with the same account
determination. If a transaction is to be posted to different accounts
depending on the valuation class, create an account determination for
each valuation class in the step Create automatic postings.
The valuation classes allowed depend on the material type. Several
valuation classes are generally allowed for one material type. A
valuation class can also be allowed for several material types.

o You must have defined your material types.
o You must have defined the chart of accounts.
o You must have agreed with Financial Accounting which materials are
assigned to which accounts.
In the standard SAP R/3 System, an account category reference is created
for each material type. The account category reference is, in turn,
assigned to precisely one valuation class. This means that each material
type has its own valuation class.
