Stock Type unrestricted in Stock Transfer Order and Goods Receipt with Mvt. Type -101

Hi Gurus,

Below is the case:

I have assigned and activated 08 inspection type in materiel master for stock transfer order inspection. with this settings scenario is working correctly (Inspection lot is generated and stock is going under Quality).

But issue is that in PO (STO - UB) and Goods Receipt (101) against Delivery, stock type is showing Unrestricted use instead of Quality Inspection.

I have checked all the settings and inspection origin in mvt. type 101 for STO which is 08.

I am not getting the exact reason for this.

Please tell me why it is happening? Any settings need to do for this?

Thanks in Advance!

    Have you checked the inspection type settings in the material master? Make sue you set "Post to QI" on for the 08 inspection type and use a new order to test with.

    • If all you are talking about is seeing the stock type in the STO PO, then yes, it will usually show unrestricted stock as the stock type for a stock transport order. All my 08 lots all show the UB PO as posting to unrestricted even though they go to QI. All the 01 lots all show the NB PO as posting to quality inspection.

      I don't know why SAP does it that way. I believe its because when you don't use QM you can set the "post to inspection stock" directly in a regular PO when its created and then that causes the material to get posted to QI upon receipt. You can also manually change that in MIGO as well. But when you have QM active, the system gets the info for posting to QI from the 01 inspection type and maintains that field for your PO and MIGO.

      But I don't think SAP implemented the same code for the 08 lots. I don't think the document type UB has the same code behind it as the PO document type (NB). I believe part of the reasons is that there are ways to have the 08 STO's show up as 01 lots and not 08. I believe it depends on configuration on the purchasing side. I believe it might be related to financial structures. Especially for instance when an STO might be sourced from a sister plant that sits under a different company code. For instance a company that has plants in US and EU might be in different financial company structures. Therefore a stock transport between them is actually recorded financially as a purchase and sale.

    You cannot ship material that is in quality inspection, SAP only allows to ship unrestricted use stock


    OSS Note 496992 - Goods issue for delivery: Stock type

    OSS Note 547277 - FAQ: Requirements in SD and in the delivery

    The purchase order will only have the "post to quality inspection" if you have not activated QM

    see this OSS note for full details 2007692 - Incorrect stock type on stock transfer order type UB

    And for UB orders for 2 step transfer there is technically only 1 field for in-transit stock MARC-TRAME, hence you cannot differentiate unrestricted stock from blocked stock or QI stock. So the design demands to only have unrestricted use stock in transit
