For certain articles, it is necessary to individually valuate the various stocks in a particular valuation area. If an article is subject to split valuation, then the article is managed as several partial stock and each partial stock is valuated separately.

Every transaction that is relevant for valuation, be it a goods receipt, goods issue, invoice receipt or physical inventory, is executed at the level of the partial stock. When you process one of these transactions, you must always specify which partial stock is involved. This is to ensure that only the partial stock in question is affected by a change in value, the other partial stocks remain unaffected. Along with the partial stock, the total stock is also updated. The calculation of the value of the total stock results from the total of the stock values and stock quantities of the partial stock. Using split valuation, separate valuation of partial quantities of a material can be carried out.


You define whether an article is subject to split valuation on the accounting view of the article master record. You do so using these two fields:

  • Valuation category — specifies the criterion to be used as the basis for differentiating between the various partial stock.

  • Valuation type — specifies an individual characteristic of a partial stock.

Note Note

Split valuation types can be maintained for an article at that distribution centerl (DC) level only after the fixing of segmentation is done at the DC level. Each variant and segmentation value combination can have its own valuation type.

End of the note.

You have to enable split valuation for your plants. You do this in the Customizing for Configure Split Valuation under   SAP Customizing Implementation Guide   Materials Management   Valuation and Account Assignment   Split valuation.  

In the the Article Master, enter X as the Valuation Category under Accounting.

Also, enter V as the Price control and a Moving price.

Note Note

If the article is a generic article, then valuation type has to be filled for all its variants at their corresponding DCs.

  1. On the SAP Easy Access Retailing menu (transactionW10M), choose   Master Data   Material Data   Material   Create/Change Valuation Type Level  . Alternatively, you can use the transaction SGT_MAINTAIN_VALT.

  2. Enter a Material and a Plant.

  3. Execute the report.

    If you select Generate Accounting View, the entries will be saved in the Material Valuation (MBEW) and the Segmentation Dependent Valuation data (SGT_MADKA) database tables. If you do not select Generate Accounting View, then the entries will only be saved in the Segmentation Dependent Valuation data (SGT_MADKA) mapping table database.

    If you select Test Run, then split valuation is only simulated, databases are not updated.

Note Note

You can maintain new valuation data based on the segmentation values for an article or for the variants of the generic article. If no valuation type is assigned to a variant and a segment combination, such entries will not be stored in the Segmentation Dependent Valuation data (SGT_MADKA) database.
