Remove Stock from MB5T

Dear SAP Experts,

We have implemented SAP in the year 2009 and for transferring materials from one plant to another plant with in the company, we are using the stock transfer process with movement type 641 and 101 movement. But the problem is when we done the stock in transit reconciliation we came to know the following problems.

1.Migo done for the deliveries with additional items for eg: if the delivery is for X item , in the receiving plant the migo items are X , Y and z.

2.Some plant done 122 movement without any reference.

3.Instead of mentioning the Delivery number in the migo , they have mentioned invoice number, By this we can't get correct match in PO history.

4.Return PO done but not received at Receiving plant.


Now the problem is stock in transit Quantity is not matching with real Quantity.

User want to correct it now. They want to consume stock directly from MB5T.

if we reverse the deliveries which has no migo then in the sending plant stock will increase and that they don't want.

what is the way to achieve this. its a grate help if you people have any suggestion.

I have used MB1A , 557 movement but its not reducing stock from MB5T.

please suggest me.

    Dear Khaja,

    If you are delivering X item from the supplying plant.

    Why you are receiving X, Y, Z items in the receiving plant?

      Dear Himavanth,

      I agree with you that, if sending plant send X then receiving Plant should do migo for only X material only. But due to some reason user has done this type of mistakes and user asking me the question that how system has allowed to do this, I am not understanding what I have to give answer to them.

    Hello Hussain,

    This is the common problem when people move the stock in two steps between plants. The actual problem is when stock is taken away from one plant, material will be lying in stock in transit that is used by other receiving plants. So, you see this kind of irregularities if proper steps are not followed. Since it is within same company code, you can follow the below approach.

    Step1 :Use 303 to move the material from supplying plant to stock in transit.

    Step2: Use 305 to move the material from stock in transit to receiving plant.

    Use MB1B in both the cases.

    As Step 1 is already completed in your case by end users, follow step2 to move the stock to respective receiving plants. Hope it helps.

    • Hi Khaja

      Your problem is due to intercompany transfers (between two company codes). That is the reason you see this error message. If it was intracompany(between same company code) then dont get this error message when you do 305. Now in your case, you need to select those outbound deliveries for which good mvt were done wrongly and reverse the goods mvt. This is the correct approach. However, if you dont have those deliveries for which PGI is done wrongly due to archiving or something, then raise a OSS message to SAP clearly telling the problem. They will remove the stock at table level. These two are the only approaches you have. I hope it helps.
