To execute a revaluation:

  1. Choose Accounting ® Controlling ® Cost Center Accounting ® Planning ® Planning aids ® Revaluate ® Costs.
  2. Enter the following selection parameters for your revaluation:
    1. Fiscal year
    2. From period, To period
    3. Version
  3. Maintain the following processing parameters:
    1. Background processing
    2. Test run
    3. Basic lists

    If you do not select Background processing, the system executes the revaluation online. If you have large amounts of data to process, you should execute the revaluation in the background. This means you can process data at times of minimal system usage.

    Detailed list and Test run are defaulted to active. This ensures that you can check the results of the test run. If Detailed list is active, the system displays a results list for the revaluation. Otherwise, the system displays a message describing whether and, if applicable, how the revaluation was closed.

    If you select Test run, the system executes the revaluation, but it does not update any results. If you deselect Test run, the system does update the results. If Test run is selected, you can only remove any errors by reversing the entire revaluation.

  4. Enter a name for your revaluation and choose Execute.
  5. You can also choose to save variants when you execute the revaluation. This enables you to save different combinations of revaluations and call them up when required.

Choose Save variant, then enter a variant name and a description.

If you want to execute the same revaluation again, you can call up the saved variant.

Choose Get variant and enter a name.

Reversing revaluations
