Reservation for Movement Type 309


I have came across a unique business scenario in which we have to move stock from Valuated material to Non-Valuated material.

Example is: One Material with Type ROH - Raw Materials

One Material with Type UNBW - Non Valuated Materials

Department will request warehouse to Transfer some quantity from ROH material to UNBW material. After receiving the material, department will use the UNBW material for their working.

As SAP is not allowing Reservation for Mvt Type 309, I have created a new Mov. Type 910 in which I mention the "Reservation Category" to "U" and enable the Cost Center, Receiving Material, Receiving Plant, Receiving Store Location field. Also I have checked the table (T156-RSTYP) and I found the entries there.

Now when I am running MB21, I am getting all the field except Receiving Material. Could anyone has idea why this field is not appearing.

If this is not possible (as I am not sure how system behaves with Accounting entry), could anyone give advice about how to accomplish that scenario.

    Have you copied it from any standard movement type ?

    Have you tested the below :

    Go to OMBW, double click on the movement type, then double click on Transfer Postings and make the field Receiving Material as optional or required for the movement type 910.

    If you are not able to see the movement type in OMBW, then go to OMJJ, select movement type, enter 910, then select Field selection (from 201)/Batch search procedure and double click on the line item, then double click Transfer Postings and make the field Receiving Material as optional or required.

    Hi Imran,

    Can you check in OMJJ for 910 MT, in Field selection (enjoy) have you maintain UMMAT field as required or not and in Allowed Transactions MB21 T-code is maintained or not. If any of these two are not maintained then please maintain and do the testing once again.

    Thanks and Regards

      Hi Arun

      I have tried without Cost Center as well but no success. For information, I included Cost Center because as I mentioned that One Material is ROH (Valuated) and other is UNBW (Non-Valuated). So system will not be able to transfer the value as other material is non-valuated.

      To cater this, I enabled the cost center in a way that system will issue the material cost on the cost center and the other non-valuated material will get the quantity update.

    I would expect that you got error message M7 500 Reservation for & is not possible. (Choose another movement type)

    Creating a new movement type will not change the situation as it is not an error message based on the number "309". There are different indicators in the movement type tables that are tested when this message is issued. And since you can only create a new movement type by copy of an existing movement type, the situation will certainly not change.

    • a one step transfer is for example a 311 movement, that is not an alternative for you.

      An alternative is a production order.

      If you don't have PP, then you may consider to use 201 movement to goods issue material A and 202 movement to receive material B.

      For the 201 movement you can create a reservation.
