Goods issue to cost object BAPI_GOODSMVT_CREATE


I am using BAPI_GOODSMVT_CREATE to create a GI with movement type 962 to a cost object. Following parameters getting filled:

Header: pstng_date, doc_date, pr_uname, ref_doc_no, ver_gr_gi_slip = '3'

Code: gm_code = '03'

Item: material, plant, stge_loc, move_type = '962', entry_qnt, entry_uom, cost_obj

Error message states: Enter Batch

Why is it requesting a batch number?

    It is asking for a batch whenever you deal with a material that is batch managed.

    You cannot do material movements for such batch managed materials without telling a batch number.

    Just do your movement in MIGO and you should experience the same.

    By the way, a 962 movement is not a standard movement, nobody here actually knows what it does and from which SAP original movement it was copied

      Yes, thanks that was it. Was using a wrong material number which was batch managed. And yes, the movement type, I should have been more precise with it. Anyways, thank you for your help!
