Hello and thanks in advance for any feedback you may be able to offer. At our SAP shop we have created a purchase order with only one purchase order line item but with 2 account assignment lines for that one purchase order line item. The line item is for quantity 2. The two account assignment lines are each for quantity 1, each for a different asset. When we go to save the purchase order the warning message message MEPO039 - "Goods receipt posted unvaluated due to multiple account assignments" comes up. When we do the good receipts it is unvaluated, as the warning message advised. My question is: is this standard system behavior or is this at all configurable? If I want to have a purchase order such as the one described above and have the GR valuated do I have any options (other than making sure that we don't use multiple account assignments for one purchase order line)?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In creating multiple acccounts per line in a purchase requisition, you normally would specify how the splits would be applied. E.G., a distribution code “1” if split by quantity and a code 2 if split by percentage. In your example, they work out to be the same. Could you be missing distribution code data or other supporting data?

    Hello and thank you for your response. I have the multiple account assignment data, in this case indicating distribution 50%, 50%. When I save the PO, the system gives me a warning MEPO039. Subsequent GRs post unvaluated. I think this is just standard functionality that GRs post unvaluated when using multiple account assignments for a p.o. line, and the valuation happens at time of invoice receipt. The finance user wishes that the multiple account assignment for a p.o. line functionality could be used and have the system valuate at time of goods receipt. I have told the user they should be created multiple p.o.lines each with single account assignment in that case.

    Someone more familiar with R/3 MM may know exactly how to make the split account feature work, but it indeed works to create committments for each split. Note that not using this feature creates its own problems in terms of receiving, governance, perhaps pricing, etc. If you create two PO's (which would be needed if the order quanity is 1), it would look as if the purchaser is trying to bypass authority levels.

    Sounds like the gr-non val flag on the item details is being set which causes the symptoms your describing. Check your line items to make sure this flag is blank on multiple account assignments.
