    MMBE

    Stock Overview: Company Code/Plant/Storage Location/Batch

    Description

    The stock overview provides you with an overview of the stocks of a

    material at all organizational levels. This distinguishes it from the

    Plant Stock and Storage Location Stock views in the material master

    which provide an overview of the stocks only at a particular plant or

    storage location.

    You can access the stock overview from the Material Master screen by

    choosing Other -> Stock overview. On the screen that appears, you enter

    the relevant material. You can also enter selection criteria to restrict

    the overview.

    Under List display, you are required to specify a display version. Under

    Select display levels, you can restrict the stocks displayed in the

    basic list to specific organizational levels.

    Output

    Basic List

    The basic list appears when you choose Execute, and provides an overview

    of the stocks at all existing organizational levels according to your

    selection criteria. You can navigate from one window to the next in the

    stock overview by choosing Right columns or Left columns accordingly.

    Breakdown List

    If you want to display only the stocks at a particular organizational

    level, position the cursor on the appropriate line in the basic list and

    choose Breakdown next level. The breakdown list appears. It provides an

    overview of the stocks at the organizational level selected and at the

    next level down according to your database selection criteria.

    Details

    In either of these lists, you can display the following details by

    positioning the cursor on an organizational level or stock type and

    choosing Choose:

    o Stock at a particular organizational level

    Example

    You want to display all existing stocks in plant 0001. You can do

    this in either the basic list or breakdown list by positioning the

    cursor on the stock line for plant 0001 and choosing Choose. A

    dialog box appears in which the stock quantities are listed by stock

    type for plant 0001.

    o Details on a stock type

    Example

    You want to display all the vendors for a consignment material. You

    can do this in either the basic list or breakdown list by

    positioning the cursor on the Vendor consignment line and choosing

    Choose. A dialog box appears in which the individual consignment

    stocks of the material are listed by vendor.

    Displaying the Batch Classification

    On the stock lines from batch level downwards, you can display the

    classification for the respective batch by positioning the cursor on the

    appropriate stock line and choosing Extras -> Batch classification.

    Displaying Stocks in Alternative Units of Measure

    You can display the stocks of the material in an alternative unit of

    measure by entering the unit in the Unit of measure field in the stock

    overview header and choosing New selection. You can display the

    alternative units of measure that have been defined for the material by

    choosing Extras -> Units allowed.

    Switching to a Different Material

    From the stock overview, you can display an overview for another

    material by entering the material concerned in the Material field in the

    stock overview header and choosing New selection.

    Hello Ana,

    A very important difference between MB52 and MMBE that in MB52 you can get stock report (even excel friendly report if you switch into ALV) for several material number at the same time while in MMBE you can check only one one of them (only one material).

    In MMBE you can't e.g. see blocked stock but from menu you can very easily reach MD04, MB51, etc

    • Just to correct one thing, In MMBE you can see blocked stock. There are several display variants given by SAP. (See field in selection screen) Further you can customize own display variants. By clicking a stock line in MMBE you get a pop-up that displays all quantities per stock type at this one line.
