From Release 4.0A, mass data can be marked and released without a costing run.
You can select multiple materials for the marking and release of standard cost estimates via the material number and plant.
Marking and releasing mass data without a costing run can be carried out for material costing with and without quantity structure.
The Marking/Releasing function can be reached via the menu Accounting -> Controlling -> Product Cost Planning -> Material Costing -> Price Update.
The previous transactions CK20 and CK21 are still available, although they will be removed in a later Release.
The granting of authorization for releasing standard cost estimates does not apply.
Further information on price updating can be found in the documentation for Product Cost Planning in the R/3 Library.
