Stock returned from customer

Hi SAP Experts,

When materials are returned from a Customer, our current SAP config defaults them to their fixed bin location, with stock category "R".

If the material is still saleable, we use a MIGO / movement type 453 to post it to unrestricted stock (it stays in the same fixed bin).

Sometimes however, the stock needs to be rejected - my problem is that I need this stock to be both moved to Blocked stock ("S") AND moved to a separate storage bin (eg "REJECTS") at the same time (and preferably with one-step transaction).

(It is necessary to hold the stock in a separate bin as we need to be able to inventory it prior to collection for destruction)

To try and acheive this I have created a new storage type specifically for the blocked stock - this is configured as a fixed storage type.

I am using MIGO / movement type 459 with destination set as the blocked storage type - however, all this does is move the stock to Blocked but leaves it in it's original fixed bin which I dont want.

Strangely enough, my setup works fine if I manually create the "R" stock (eg use MIGO to move random stock to "R") BUT it doesnt if I go through the end-to-end process and create a sales order then do the return and goods receipt!

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated as I am going around in circles now trying to work this out.

FYI we are using V.5.0 with WM

Thanks in advance

Angela

    You should try tranfer of material from one storage location to another, through appropriate movement type.
