Materials to be valuated together in LIFO valuation are grouped under a pool number.

Supplementary Documentation - MYPOOL 0001


Materials to be valuated together are grouped under a pool number.


If a material is to be valuated in a pool, a pool must be entered in the material master record. There are two possible options:

  • Pool formation via the valuation menu

    In customizing for valuation, pool allocation can be set depending on material type and quantity unit. When forming a pool, the pool number is entered in the relevant material master records according to the customizing setting.

  • Entering a pool number when creating or changing the material master record

    A check is not made whether the pool number entered corresponds to the allocation set in customizing.


The pool number is only important if the field LIFO_relevant is selected.
