Regarding new requirement on Movement Type

Hi Experts

I have a requirement.We have to create custom movement types by copying standard material movements 201 and 202.Now business requirement is creating different movement types for different business transactions as stated below to assign different G/L accounts in different Business Transactions :

All the material movements should be a credit against inventory and debits against G&L account

For each of these options we should have a different movement type:

a) For new product developments. - Account Modifier Z01

b) Request for samples to account. - Account Modifier Z02

c) Quality control tests. - Account Modifier Z03

d) For consumption. - Account Modifier Z04

e) For cleaning - Account Modifier Z05

f) For reprocessing - Account Modifier Z06

My question is, instead of creating multiple new movement types unnecessarily which is copy of 201/2 material movement and can we do the same with only one new custom movement type , however, with multiple Account Modifiers???

I mean to say we will create only one new Movement Type(For Example 901/2) but 6 different General Modifiers(mentioned above). But at the time of doing any particular transaction system should automatically determine the relevant account modifier and determine the relevant G/L as well.That is if we perform new Product Development transaction - system will perform movement 901 , however obtain account modifier Z01 to determine G/L.It should not go for any other account modifier.Is there any provision in standard SAP??

    I hope we can use only one account grouping for one movement type.

    You can do two process for your requirement.

    1. Maintain the account posting for valuation class with G/L in OBYC setting for different different general modification.


    GM VC G/L

    Z01 XXXX XXXX1

    Z02 XXXX XXXX2

    Z03 XXXX XXXX3

    Z04 XXXX XXXX4

    Z05 XXXX XXXX5

    Z06 XXXX XXXX6

    Then you have to do one thing for the newly created movement type on every transaction.

    Suppose you want to post into G/L account for Z02 GM,

    Just go to OMJJ, Select the movement type, then change the account modifier as Z02.

    When you want to post into G/L account for Z05 GM,

    Again go to OMJJ, Select the movement type, then change the account modifier as Z05.

    I can understand that its very time consumed. But this could be a way you can hit the different G/L again one movement type within same transaction event key.

    2. As you have said already, you can create 6 new movement type for these requirement,

    You can follow the document Different accounting for different purpose against movement type
