How to explain this move type

Below is the SAP official explain about movement type 641

641 Goods issue for a stock transport order (SD)

This movement is generated by SD.

The quantity is transferred using an SD delivery from unrestricted-use stock of the issuing plant to stock in transit of the receiving plant.

The goods receipt for the

stock transport order takes place using movement type 101 and can, if required, refer to the purchase order or to the delivery.

Possible special stock indicators: E, Q

For the special stock indicators E and Q and for purchase orders assigned to an account, you must ensure that the quantity is not posted to the stock in transit of the receiving plant.

It confuse us how to ensure indicators E that the quantity is not posted to the stock in transit of the receiving plant?

what shall we do if we wanna special stock indicators E ?

    Hi , As you are using the movement type 641 i assume that its an STO with SD and order type UB ( probably MRP generated). Here after the GI the stock is in transit and its a cross company code clearance .This is the Standard SAP functionality.

    Can you explain your Business process as to why you donot want to see the stock in transit , where are you going to put after GI .

    There's a way out , if this is what the requirement is : Stock that is used for a sales order. It is directly allocated to a sales order. Components can only be used to produce material ordered by the customer and the finished product can only be delivered to the customer via the sales order.

    You can manage valuated or non-valuated sales order stock.

    In this case :

    If the sales order stock is valuated, you have immediate access to its value in Financial Accounting. The assigned accounts are debited and credited as a result of the valuated goods movements. From the viewpoint of MRP, the sales order stock is available for the sales order only.

    When you enter a goods movement for sales order stock, you should consider the following:

    When you enter a goods movement with reference to a purchase order or a production order, the sales order number and item are copied from the reference document.

    When you enter other goods movements, you must specify the sales order number and item.

    Goods movements for sales order stock are entered as follows:

    Other goods receipts, goods issues, transfer postings:

    Enter the relevant movement type with the special stock indicator E and the sales order number and item

    Enter a goods receipt for a purchase order or for an order as normal using the movement type 101. If an item is assigned to a sales order (account assignment category E), the system automatically sets the special stock indicator at goods receipt.

    Hope i have not confused you more .Do let me know the BP so that a proper solution can be provided .

      Thank you Parmar

      our business demand are:

      Transferring article form distridution center(name:DC10) to sales order stock in a site(name:A100) .

      by the way our sap is retail system.

      so we hope the process will be:

      create so type OR, sales order item require special stock E

      Outbound delivery , type LF, the schdule line reference PR , and create it immediately

      form PR general stock transport order , type is UB

      in vl10b generate delivery type is NL, then PGI

      the problem happens in here , movement type 641 E issue goods but there is a error message 'Sales order stock 30001057 000010 does not exist'.

      we check the 641 function, it will issue goods to 'in transit' first, but for E it said

      <b>ensure that the quantity is not posted to the stock 'in transit' of the receiving plant.</b>
