I have one scenario to solve.

A customer provides us with packaging material to be used as we send him the requested goods. The material he provides us has no value but quantity.

We use MIGO to the GR of the packaging related with the customer number and with movement type 561 V (GR per initial entry of stock to unrestricted stock of returnable packaging at a customer's stock) .

What I’m trying to do is to add the “customer’s packaging material” directly as one of the positions in the outbound delivery generated with reference to a sales order (editing with VL02n).

The movement type is determined directly from the schedule line category – my idea is to use the 562 V to reduce the 561 V stock… but I just get errors related to checks against the table 156S

Error while determining for WM via Table 156S: 562/ /X/ /L/X/

And although I edited the table (SM31 - V_156SC_VC, following note 1733520) to add the alleged entries, I still getting the same error.


What’s your opinion about the solution to the scenario?

How could I overcome this error?

Thank you very much in advance, community!

    Not sure who have guided to use 561 movement type which normally will not be used by any Business. Also not sure whether before implementing this in production, the process is tested, validated the inventory side by MM & FI consultants and finally taken concurrence from Business. The approach would be to use 501 movement type to upload stock

    • I had to take up this scenario which was begun by a consultant that is not working in the company anymore so I'm kind of trying to understand what he did ... I read in other threads (or in - I don't know where) that normally the 561 is used in the initial uploads and doubted if it was the better approach.

      I don't know what to do - maybe I should try to get "best practices" scenarios and re-work the whole thing.

      What is sure is that I will have a look into your approach with the 501 movtype.

      Thanks for sharing it!
