Valuation Class

Hello guru's

Can anyone tell me how do we control the use of selected valuation classes per material type?

Thank you.

Define Valuation Classes

In this step, you define which valuation classes are allowed for a

material type.

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.

The link between the valuation classes and the material types is set up

via the account category reference.

The account category reference is a combination of valuation classes.

Precisely one account category reference is assigned to a material type.



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.

Default settings

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.
