Somehow we show a negative amount of material at a subcontractor and need to change this to 0. Using TCode 542 will not allow to "transfer" a negative number. And when we try to transfer a positive number to unrestricted, we end up with a higher negative number in the subcontracting stock.

a negative amount can only show up if you allowed negative stock for this material.

you can only post positive numbers, this is a fact, you cannot transfers negative stock, this is against all logic.

If you get an even higher negative number when you post a positive stock then you probably use the wrong movement type.

If you have negative stock at your subcontractor then you have to move positive quantity from your plant to the subcontractor, and this is done with 541.
