How Movement Type is determined of a material in Goods movement in COR6?

Dear Sir,

I am facing some problem regarding movement type selection in Goods movement in COR6.

Actually my client is asking " How 261 or 531 movement type is assigned automatically at the time of COR6".

My reply is " As per the BOM quantity it is defined, if the quantity is positive then 261 will be selected, if the quantity is negative 531 or 101 will be selected. If the material is co-product then 101 and if not then 531 will be selected in movement type in cor6." But they are asking " Where it is mentioned in configuration level?"

Because they are going to customize the movement type 261, 531 & 101.

Now , I just wanted to know how this movement type is determined in COR6 goods movement and where it is configured?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Koushik,

    Movement type 261, 561 and 101 are standard movement types in SAP. Configuration of movement types is mainly the responsibility of SAP MM. You can use OMJJ transaction and do that with the help from SAP MM consultant or by using the SAP help notes.

    Below are some of the threads which will guide you to understand the movement types and resolve your query,

    It can be defined in transaction code OPKA.

    SAP recomending that changes are necessary only if you do not use the SAP standard configuration.
