    Hi, The report FAGLB03 is a report purely based upon the GL account . How much value is there in Debit and Credit overall . MB5L is the report which shows the total stock and value which has been posted upon that GL account through the Inventory transactions . You mean to say the difference between the debit and credit ? in the FAGLB03 report screen take the menu EDIT-lINE item report WILL LEAD to another screen wharee you can get the reason why that difference occurred and based upon that you can plan for the differences . Regards,

    • The usual root cause for differences between MM (first column) and FI (middle column) are direct postings in FI to stock accounts.

      There are a few more options, just click the blue info button on the selection screen of MB5L for details, you can also check the OSS note 968812 - MM/FI Difference for material stocks

      Why you also have a difference between the FI value from MB5L and your FAGLB03 is for the moment secondary, you should first care about the 100thousand before you spend your time of just 50

      I would also recommend to run it for the previous month (year)  to see if this difference is new or already some time old, this knowledge makes it easier to search for the root cause.
