The sum of Inventory qty (neg and positive) is zero but do I need to remove them from LS24?

Hi all,

I performed a GR of a PO for a material that has quality setup, the system puts in Q with an inspection lot.

immediately I have to cancel the 101 with MBST.

the system removes the stock from IM but in WM leaves two entries one with positive and another one with negative number.

Although the inventory is zero in WM these two records are kind of annoying.

is this a common practice that someone has to take care of this? or is there is any program i put to run in the background to eliminate this?

for now I did it with LB12 but I was wondering if this has to be part of my company procedure so user do that

    Of course someone has to take care of this.

    Usually such situation should not occur if the cancellation movement is correctly setup and nothing happened after the goods receipt. The quants and TRs  from receipt and cancellation would equalize and vanish

    From your description it can be understood that this did not happen, that you have those quants as well as TRs or PCNs, you did not mention what you had in LB12 and in which storage type those quants are. You did not tell if your system is setup to automatically create TOs. If there is already an open  TO, then it can't be equalized by TR from a cancellation.

    Use SE16 and compare both quants in table LQUA and see which field is different, this explains then the reason that it did not equalize each other.

    • This explains it.

      Your goods receipt was already put-away.

      Hence you have nothing at the interim bin in 902 storage type which could be equalized with the negative quant from the cancellation.

      Under these circumstances you have to clear it manually.
