Reversal of inventory differences CKMDUVMAT

Hello,

We have a strange situation with CKMDUVMAT.

Our current process is like this(standard I would say):

  • LX16 creation of inventory list
  • LI11N that is done automatically via a scanner bar code
  • LI20 Warehouse Management
  • LI21 Inventory Management
  • CKMDUVMAT - Distribution of Inventory Differences

Now, by mistake some materials go through all the steps and now I'm trying to reverse everything and to arrive in initial situation.

Do you know what are the steps of reverse the postings already made?

    Dear Bogdan George,

    Kindly refer the note - 1157726 for the reversal of DUV postings.

    You cannot reverse "everything" - physical inventories cannot be reversed - they have to be recounted or new counted

    • reversal of DUV is only possible if you have the OSS note 1157726 implemented and even here are some limitations, please read this note.

      I have not yet worked with material ledger and do not even know this transaction, how it is used and what exactly it does and where this has its consequences. I just stepped in to say that you cannot revers a physical inventory, you have to do a new one.

      And just because of that fact I already doubt that you would need to reverse the DUV, as you get new values which need to be distributed and should then equalize the wrong old distributed values.

      Example: you counted 100 and had a book inventory of 20, which results in a difference of +80

      case 1: you recount and count 20, this means because of the new book inventory of 100 you get this time a difference of - 80 and this equalizes the first count completely.

      case 2: you recount and count 50, this means because of the new book inventory of 100 you get this time a difference of - 30 and hence values for -30 to be distributed that reduce the initial difference.

      if you reverse the distribution of the first count, then I can currently not imagine what you get for your distribution after the second count, whether you get only values for the delta, or for both counts together.
