The Material Ledger is required if you are using SAP S/4HANA for Materials Management - Inventory Management:


Check the KBA:

• With S/4HANA 1610, the data model for material ledger data has been changed significantly, especially when Actual Costing is active.
For details, check the notes:

2352383 S4TWL - Conversion to S/4HANA 1610 Material Ledger and Actual Costing.

In SAP S/4HANA, the material ledger is mandatory. Therefore, migration of the material ledger is required in the following scenarios:

Migration from SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA 1610 or higher
Migration from SAP Simple Finance to SAP S/4HANA 1610 or higher

You always need to migrate the material ledger, even if you were not using the material ledger in the source system.

The note 2354768 includes all steps to be considered

Before starting the conversion, please make sure to implement relevant SAP Notes that are mentioned in SAP Note 2345739.

CKM3 in S/4HANA 1610

 

The transaction CKM3/CKM3N was refactored and now provides a simplified and improved view of materials in plants with active Actual Costing.
It replaces the former CKM3 view Price Determination Structure.
The former CKM3 Price History view is still available via transaction CKM3PH for all materials (independent of price determination control and active Actual Costing).
All other views formerly offered by CKM3/CKM3N are no longer available.

 

Functional changes/improvements:
• No separate view for Cost Components, but integrated in main screen
• Flag for selection of cost components not relevant for material valuation, or only cost components relevant for material valuation; by default selection of inventory relevant cost component split
• Display of WIP Reduction for material; by default WIP Reduction is hidden; If WIP reduction is displayed, both WIP reduction and consumption of WIP for order are shown in opposite sign in different folder.
• Plan/Actual Comparison is removed in new CKM3
• Technically, data are retrieved from table MLDOC, MLDOCCCS and MLDOC_EXTRACT and MLDOCCCS_EXTRACT

 

Remark: Data older than last period of previous year (related to the time of system conversion) cannot be displayed via transaction CKM3 because the 'old' data has not been converted to the MLDOC-tables. To show data older than last period of previous year you can use transaction CKM3OLD('Material Price Analysis') or CKM3PHOLD ('Material Price History').

  1. Former Member

    Dear Cruz,

    We are working on a S/4HANA upgrade project from 1511 OP to 1610. We are currently using material ledger with actual costing. When we try to convert system and data in the middle of month, we discover that, old material ledger data is not converted in new ML tables(MLDOC,MLDOC_EXTRACT etc.). After conversion, we have also some new transactions. When we tried to close this month, we saw that, price differences did not distributed correctly. This means, for this month, actual costs are not correct.

    Can we say that, if we want to convert any system(older than 1610 OP) that actual costing is already activated, we must do the conversion at the end of month, and before conversion current period must be closed. After conversion we must open new period, and proceed with it. If it is the case, in Turkish market we should discuss this situation for each Conversion customer. Because, in TR actual costing is legal requirement, and most of our customers are using material ledger with actual costing. And for most of them, closing period in the last day of month is not easy(because of late invoices etc.) Could you kindly guide us about this issue?

    Kind regards,

    1. If you are upgrading from 1511 to 1610 and in your source system, Actual Costing active for at least one plant (T001W-MGVUPD = X), these are the general recommendations:

      - It is not possible to post documents on a plant with Actual Costing active before running FCML4H_STARTUP.
      After technical conversion, please make sure that these notes are implemented:

      2403356 - Check for Material Ledger Actual Costing Startup (after activation).
      -> This note makes sure, that no postings can be done without startup or migration

      2417369 - S/4HANA 1610: Deactivation of Material Ledger proxy objects
      -> Report FCMLHELP_DEACT_PROXY_OBJECTS needs to be executed , to make sure that obsolete proxy objects are deactivated.
      -> This is not needed, in case note 2404421 has been in the system at the time of executing migration step "Migration to SAP S/4HANA Finance --> Data Migration --> Regenerate CDS Views and Field Mapping".

      - Execute the program FCML4H_STARTUP.

      If you upgrade from SAP S/4HANA 1511 to SAP S/4HANA 1610, you don’t have to execute any steps listed in the SAP Customizing Implementation Guide under Conversion of Accounting to SAP S/4HANA. Also, you don't have to execute any of the Finance specific preparation steps mentioned in SAP Note 2332030.
      However, if in your source system actual costing is active for at least one plant (T001W-MGVUPD = X), you have to execute transaction FCML4H_STARTUP after an upgrade from SAP S/4HANA 1511. See note 2450377.

      The program FCML4H_STARTUP will create stock and value information in table MLDOC for each period starting from last period of year before previous year (based on table ACDOCA_M_EXTRACT).

      - It is required to finish all open costing runs before the upgrade.
      After the upgrade, new costing runs can be created, also for the previous period.

      Should you need further analysis of your specific scenario, please use our SAP ONE Support Launchpad.

  2. We had implemented the upgrade from 1511 OP to 1709 in the middle of month. we have met the same issue as Neslihan Sahbaz described.

     

    I don't know SAP how to resolve this issue.

    As to the upgrade under S/4 HANA 1610, Please do remember that the new period must have any document until the upgrade finished.

  3. must have not any document.
