Hi Gurus,

Greetings!!

Our basic requirement is we want to have 1st GRN without without inventory value update and only stock update. We want this stock in storage locations. Post that we want to do movement type 311 2 times and then we want to post actual GRN with accounting update.

So we cannot use movement type 103 because it is bringing stock at plant level and not in storage location.

Kindly suggest on how we can achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Akshay

are you able to explain why you need it the way you described?

What you described is already a solution but not the problem what needs to be solved. It might just create another problem instead of solving the original requirement.

Thanks a lot for update!

Scenario:

Packaged bottle and pharma industry

1. Specific goods will be arrived at plant w.r.t. PO without updating inventory value.

2. These should be gone under 2-3 storage location to storage location transfer with quality checks at each storage location.

3. We need to check stock quantity at all these storage locations.

4. If found Okay at all checks final valuated GRN to be done.

5. If not okay at any stage vendor takes back the stock.

Scenario is sort of working with vendor inventory (or may be negative inventory i am not sure)

Need help on this scenario.

okay, I can imagine the scenario now, but have no convenient solution.

103 does not allow to manage stock at storage location.

And you can't move and manage a material with a material type which is defined as valuated without costs for a part of it.

Even a UNBW material type would not work or a split valuated material where one valuation type has a 0 standard price, as both cases would force SAP to post the value during a GR to a cost center.

A purchase order marked as free would influence the moving average for existing stock when you do a receipt.

So you have basically a lot of dead ends.

The only thing that comes into my mind would be a separate valuated material master, separate to avoid that value of quality checked stock get mixed with the new receipts and causes trouble while returning.

You would then order the material A, check it in your 3 locations, and if it is okays then you would cancel its receipt and add material B in the same PO as new position, followed by GR and IR. In case of bad quality you would return material A and create a fresh order.

Important would be to have always only one receipt in your new material, as well because of possible valuation issues. If you have more receipts of the same material then you may need to consider valuation at batch level.

Of course adds such work around process a lot work if it has to be done manually. Good programmers should be able to provide an interface to do all those activities automatically that have to be done after the material is okay .

Nevertheless, it is still a pretty simplified solution, as there might be other conflicting requirements for this solution
