Returns item problem


Hello everybody,

I have a problem with the following process:

1. User creates a purchase order with returns item checked (it's internal return

within the same company code)

2. User uses transaction VL10B to create delivery note

3. MIGO transaction is then used with reference to the purchase order from step 1

(movement type 101 which is then automatically converted to 161)

4. VL02 is used with reference to delivery form step 2.

However delivery completed indicator for purchase order is not set automatically

for returns item even though open quantity is now zero.

I have checked the customizing and the delivery completed indicator should be

set automatically. Is this normal behavior ? Perhaps I'm missing something.

From one point of view it seems logical since 161 is actually goods issue and

not goods receipt. From another point of view - if open quantity is zero, shouldn't

the delivery completed indicator be set automatically ?

We are considering the possibility to write a report that checks if the open quantity

is zero and sets this indicator. I can't fight the feeling that something is missing


Thank you in advance for your replies.

Best regards,
