Control of Costing of Sales Document Items

Description

In Release 4.0A you can specify the following for a sales document item (item in an inquiry, quotation, or sales order) in the Product Cost by Sales Order component:

Here the sales document item must be costed. If the cost estimate was faulty, the sales document item receives the status ZKAL. This status prevents subsequent functions such as delivery and billing from being carried out on the sales document item. The cost estimate must be error-free before transactions can be carried out. In this case you choose the entry Costing required.
The cost estimate of the sales document item is only simulated. In this case the status is not updated - subsequent functions such as delivery and billing are allowed. The costing simulation does not update conditions or planned costs to the sales document item. Here you choose the entry Costing permitted, without updating status - simulation.
A cost estimate for the sales document item is not mandatory but allowed. Only if the cost estimate is error-free are subsequent functions such as delivery and billing allowed. Here you choose the entry Costing permitted, with status updating.
In this case the sales document item cannot be costed.
You choose the entry May not be costed.

If you are using a nonvaluated sales order inventory, account determination for semifinished products is made using transaction type 231.
