TCode to move Non Inventoried item to an Inventoried Item

Good Day Everyone

Our team has purchased some items as Non Inventoried - we used FB60 to post and the item has already been paid. They now would like to move that to a PO and inventoried item. I am assuming there isn't a Tcode to use to perform this function, and in the past they have manually written this on using a MVT561. This is happening more often - What is the preferred way to perform this in the future - setup a R&D location and receive the product in later?

    This can only be solved with organizational measures and education if this is "happening more often" .

    561 is a movement type for initial inventory creation, this should only be used when you go-live with a new system or a roll out to new companies and plants, but not for daily operations. Its offset account is usually used to reconcile the value with a legacy system. And in good managed systems this account would be locked for postings if the initial inventory was reconciled.

    If you write on inventory then you usually want to credit the cost center that got initially debited with the costs for the material.

    If it is a material that is in general stored in your warehouse and used in production or sales then you should turn the process and purchase always to stock and goods issue from here to your R&D

    First of all:

    If a company is public listed company;

    Auditors will catch using 561 movement type even after go live.

    561 to be used only during go-live. once golive activities are performed, its access or kind of accounts it hits should be disabled,

    Doing this is not only a bad practice but an opportunity to scramble your inventory management & FI.

    Now about your problem:

    PO can be created for non-invetory and inventory items . Non -inventory items can be posted against a cost center.

    & material you want to inventory and track it, have them as material master; & write the PO normally with no account type.

    setup a R&D location and receive the product in later:

    R&D will always be consuming material against a cost center.

    or if R&D is your production facility then it will be done through process order / production order.
