Add Freight Vendor in 2 step transfer

Hi gurus,

The client requires the following scenario:

2 step transfer posting between two storage locations physically located in different geographical areas.

Also, they don't wan't to perform STO and O.D. / I.D.

There is a transport vendor which provides freight services.

So, I thought of MIGO_TR with 313 and 315 movement types.

I also configured output message determination at mov 313 posting.

The only problem I find is where to load Vendor (Freight vendor) in order to be able then to get their details to populate then a dedicated area in the output message (delivery note).

In fact, when I start to populate MIGO_TR, the tab PARTNER shows up with field Vendor empty. I type the Freight Vendor code, the system recognize it, but then when i clic CHECK and or POST, the vendor tab and code automatically disapears and vendor code is not save in the material code.

Can you suggest how can I configure this tab to my needs?

Many thanks in advance.

    If you are allowed to enter a vendor in the partner tab of a goods receipt is based on the definition of a condition type used in your pricing schema.

    Here is an example from the customizing of a freight condition, showing the field that controls what the user can do.

    Since you are not using a purchase order I don't think you have an option to use this field.

    But what would it actually do for you in your scenario? Just information? You can use the short text to enter this information if really needed (since you only use a single carrier I do not really see a need to capture his number)

    There is in general not really a way to add freight costs in a movement without reference. The only field that allows manipulation on a value is the "Ext. GA amount in LC", but this expects the total value of the movement, not just the freight portion. A warehouse worker who does such movements does usually not have the information about values of the goods and details about freight.

    You may add value to your stock via transaction MR22. Still this will not have any link to freight costs and its vendor.

    Hi Jurgen,

    Thanks very much for your prompt answer.

    The need of being able to bring vendor at mov 313 posting, is to be able to take Vendor General Data in order to add it to the Delivery Note output message created to be determined for such a mov posting. Otherwise I don't know from where I could bring this kind of data.

    The delivery note smart form created for this mov posting has the following segments:

    - Header:

    - Receiver information: (as it is a 2 step TF bt/SL to SL within the same plant, it will bring the general data from table TWLAD for the reeceiving storage)

    - Transport vendor: (here it should bring general data of this vendor such as Name1, Street, House_Num1, Region, City1, Land1, Tel_Num1)

    MAIN: Mat codes and quantities

    - Footer: Some other info from the company.

    There are no costs tracked through conditions since Transpor Vendor services are being held and payed through FI.

    Any suggestions?

    Best regards.

    Hi Everyone,

    I was able to solve it by adding LIFN to movement type 313.

    Customizing path: IMG - Inventory Management and Physical Inventory - Settings for Enjoy Transactions - Settings for Goods Movements (MIGO) - Field Selection per Mvt Type.

    Now when I do MIGO, the vendor code is requested, not erased after CHECK or POST, and it populates field in table MSEG field LIFNR.

    Best regards,
