STO Inter-Intracompany code

Dear all,

There are hundreds of posts and i would like your help to clarify the STO process.

I have an Inter company process (NBCC PO, Outbound delivery, GI, SPED output type, inbound del GR).

If GR quantity > GI quantity then stock in transit is negative. Is this correct? How it is managed?

If GR quantity < GI quantity. Is it possible? How it is managed? GR for the whole quantity and then Return PO for the missing ones?

If materials are HU managed how return STO is possible?

Best Regards

    Hi Alexandros,

    Please, see SAP Note 1679256 - Stock in transit (SiT): Special movement types.

    There are other notes older, please, consider also

    • SAP Note 389484 - Movement types 557/558 for the stock intransit correction
    • SAP Note 392205 - Analysis of stock in transit/correctionfor split valuation
    • Note 521090 - FAQ: Stock transfer to stock transport order

    In the other hand, related with HU, if you are handling it with SPED (inbound delivery), HU is trasnfered from outbound to inbound delivery (see the history of HU in HUMO).

    I hope it helps you

    Hi Eduardo,

    Thank you for your answer, So i understand that the best approach is the receiving plant to receive the exact same quantities as issued. However, in intercompany scenario, it is possible to put in the inbound delivery bigger quantity than the one issued. Can this be avoided?

    Moreover, in the case of a Return STO with Handling Units, it is not possible to process them, as the system proposes HU;s from the receiving plant (in case of return STO shipped from is the actual receiving plant). Is there any solution on that?
