Reports for the analysis of Structure link costing runs

Usually, if there is a larger volume of data, a costing run is run in the background over night. For this reason, it is important to quickly receive an overview of the results of a costing run. For example, such an overview enables you to find out which cost estimates were faulty or which costing results greatly vary from the valuation price (standard price or moving average price) of the respective materials.


The standard system supplies the following three variants of this report:

You can display the results of one or more costing runs.

You can compare the selected cost estimates against a material master price that you select. You can, for example, check the revaluation of the warehouse inventories that would result if the selected cost estimates were released.

You can compare costing runs with each other.

Each of these report variants has its own selection screen in which you can specify the criteria by which you want the system to select objects or data for the report.

You can do the following:

The field…

can be used to...

Material master price

select a price from the material master for comparison with the costing results of the costed materials. If necessary, you can select the key figure Costing/MM to display the variances between the calculated price and the selected material master price.

Cost component view

enter the desired cost component view. The cost component groups and values displayed depend on the cost component view.


enter a user-defined layout The report is started with the layout that is entered here. If you do not enter a layout, the system will generate a layout dynamically.

The following additional settings can be specified independently of the report variant when you execute the report:

Though Extras ®

You can...

Set currency...

Specify whether the costing results should be displayed in company code or controlling area currency

Activate cost component group...

Specify which cost component group (cost component group 1 or 2) should be used

Hide report header

Hide or show the report header information

Selection scope...

Specify which material cost estimates are displayed You can, for example, only display cost estimates with quantity structure or only additive cost estimates.



To avoid long runtimes every time you call a report, you can use the function Extract... to save the selected report data as an extract For more information, see: Working with Extracts


A suitable layout is defined for every report variant. This layout is automatically used in the standard system.

You can adjust the report variants supplied in the standard system to suit your requirements. Create a layout with the information you are most interested in. If you want to start the report with your own layout, enter that layout in the selection screen under Layout, or define it as an initial variant. In this case, every report variant starts with this layout.


See Creating, Changing and Managing Layouts and Structure link Managing Layouts for more information on layouts.

You can find information about the different functions for interactive processing of the results list under Structure link ABAP List Viewer.

Available Information

The following fields or field groups are available in the list screen of the report:

This key figure represents the absolute variance between the cost estimate value and the material master price selected in the selection screen in the report (see the explanation below).

This key figure represents the percentage variance between the cost estimate value and the material master price selected in the selection screen in the report against the material master price.

This key figure represents the difference between the value according to the cost estimate (costing value for each price unit times the inventory value) and the value of the entire inventory for each material.

This key figure represents the absolute variance between two costing runs.

This key figure represents the percentage variance between two costing runs against the first costing run.

contains basic data for the material

contains basic data on the cost estimates

contains data on the valuation, such as the standard price and total inventory

contains the defined cost component groups for the cost estimates

contains the defined cost component groups with fixed costs for the cost estimates
