    Transfer posting is like trasnfering material from one location to another, restricting/unrestricting, material to material transfer etc through tx MB1B. Its mainly managing your matarial stock. And transfer order means transferring stock with one sales order to another.

    Hope it is clear to u.

      Transfer Order is a concept used in WM;

      every material movement in a warehouse (between differents storage types, for instance) uses a Transfer Order.

    Hi,

    Transfer posting is for transfering materials within the plant and it is a concept of Wharehouse management. Transfer order is for moving the stock between different plants in the same company code.

    Dear Sandip ,

    As well said by Mr.Rajesha Vittal,

    Taken from SAP help.

    A material document is created for every transfer posting,and in addition an

    accounting document is only created for transfer postings that lead to a change in

    value

    Transfer postings are of many types as like,

    1.Transfer Posting: From Plant to Plant

    2.Transfer Posting: From Consignment to Company-Owned Stock

    3.Transfer Posting: From Material to Material

    4.Transfer Posting: From Valuation Type to Valuation Type

    In order to execute these functions please check the below link.

    <u><b>Transfer Order</b></u>

    This is a concept which's used in Warehouse Management

    To execute goods movements in the warehouse, you create transfer orders in the

    Warehouse Management System (WMS).
