    Dear,

    see the help file copy

    MBBM

    Short text

    Batch Input: Post Material Document

    Report used to create batch input sessions, in order to post material

    documents for goods movements.

    Description

    The report RM07MMBL is used to create batch input sessions for goods

    movements. In a second step, you must process the BTCI sessions, in

    order to post the material documents for the goods movements.

    The data for the BTCI session is imported from an external dataset as a

    sequential file. The structure of this sequential file is predefined in

    table BMSEG. You can display this structure via the Data Dictionary

    information system (object class Fields).

    Requirement

    Before you start the report, make sure that the file entered on the

    selection screen is stored in the specified directory at operating

    system level.

    Similar to entering data online, the system expects certain data for

    each goods movement (for example, posting date, document date, material

    number, quantity). If this data is not made available, an error will

    occur when the BTCI session is processed.

    Via batch input, you can post material documents with reference to

    purchase orders or reservations only if the reference documents exist in

    the system.

    Procedure using test data

    Before data is imported for the production system, a run should be

    performed using test data. In this case, data is not imported from the

    sequential file but from the Customizing system. This means that you

    have to maintain test data for the Customizing system of Inventory

    Management (under Tools -> Adopt data) -> Stocks -> Test data.

    For testing purposes, the following goods movements are allowed:

    o SAP transaction MB01, movement type 101 (goods receipt for PO)

    For this movement, the order number and order item are required (not

    the material number).

    o SAP transaction MB11, movement type 501 (goods receipt w/o PO)

    For this movement, the material number is required.

    o SAP transaction MB11, movement type 201 (goods issue for cost

    center)

    For this movement, the material number and the account assignment

    (cost center) are required.

    Output

    The system generates a batch input session which you can process via

    options System -> Services -> Batch input -> Sessions.

    When processing the batch input session for testing purposes, you should

    set the Display errors only indicator.

    When importing the actual productive data, you should always use the

    Background indicator.

    If data expected by the system (required-entry fields) does not exist,

    an error will occur during the batch input session which will interrupt

    processing.

    An error will also occur during the batch input session if you try to

    maintain data not expected by the system (fields not ready for input).

    However, processing will not be interrupted. The system writes a comment

    in the session log.
