Note Note

The error management key in the costing variant determines whether you can send messages through message control .

The message is sent on the date that was specified in Customizing for Product Cost Planning (for example, when you save the cost estimate). For more information, see the Implementation Guide (IMG) for Start of the navigation path Product Cost Planning Next navigation step under Next navigation step Basic Settings for Material Costing Next navigation step Error Management Next navigation step Define Message Control End of the navigation path .

Messages are normally only sent in Product Cost Planning via message control. If you want to use this function for sales order costing, order BOM costing or preliminary costing for product cost collectors, you must first of all change the setting in the costing variant and then make the necessary settings in Customizing for Product Cost Planning .
