Cause

 

  1. Go to Inventory Valuation work center
  2. Select Material Unit Costs sub view under Master Data view
  3. Select All Unit Costs and search for the Material
  4. Highlight the material ID with the respective Business Residence ID/Company
  5. Select View Cost History button
  6. Navigate to select the same Period/Year that matches your Revenue Recognition

For SoB PQR the Resulting Inventory Cost is 45,000

For SoB XYZ the Resulting Inventory Cost is 48,000 but rate is changed to 45,000 only after the execution of the Revenue Recognition. Consequently this rate is picked and is shown as Current Earned CoGS against this SoB.

 

 

Resolution

The material used in the sales order processing determines the Earned CoGS. The difference in value for each of set of book is due to the Material Unit Costs that is valid for each set of book at the time of running Revenue Recognition and its selection criteria.

Postings are inline with the above rates maintained. If this difference in values in each SoB is not acceptable then you can choose to reverse the Revenue Recognition ID 123  by performing a new Revenue Recognition for the same selection criteria. Once the reversal cross check the rates applicable and correct if required and then Run a Revenue Recognition again.
