Even we extended material in to 2 storage types but if we do MIGO for import system is taking storage bin belongs to domestic

Please help on this regard

Hello Swapnil,

As far as I know it is not possible to have multiple storage type indicators on a single material/plant/warehouse combination.
With regards to the split valuation I think this is usually handled using batches. The below thread sheds some light on this:

Hope this helps, kind regards,

Can you plz tell me how we can pick the particular bin automatically i.e. if i create TO for domestic or import

We have maintained 2 storage types for same material one storage type for Domestic procurement and other for Import and maintained 2 fixed bins in WM2 for each storage types. In our company once MIGO posted automatic TO got generated but in TO system is taking only one bin either domestic or import bin. Kindly tell me how system will pick correct bin like for domestic material domestic storage bin and for import other bin.

short answer: no. Or do you see any second field?

Long answer: how should that work? Even if you have two putaway indicators - how shall the system distinguish between the two and from where should the decision come which one to use? So you have to check the available fields in the storage type sequence determination and see which one you could use. Or how should the system now that one time it is domestic and one time import?



P.S. if you post the GR with MIGO - this is NO EWM question. Wrong tag.
