Cause

Changes have been made to the valuation class of the material. The system checks the valuation class of the current and previous periods, MBEW-BKLAS and MBEW-VMBKL. 
If a difference is found the posting is stopped with this hard coded error M7115, to avoid database inconsistencies.

Resolution
