stfr sloc to sloc

i am transfering the stock from 1sloc to anothe sloc bith are warehouse maged and assigned to differnt warehose

sloc 1 -

warehouse 100

sloc 2-------warehouse 101

i am doing stock transfer in IM using movement type 311 and system is genrating a material document

i know that the refre. movement type assigned to the IM 311 are 311 & 312 (WM movement type)

now in the details of the 311 (wm movement type) the destination storage area is 921 (interim) and in 312 source storaget type is 921 (interim)

i know that two activitys are taking place 1 pick 2nd putaway

my question is 921 (in 311) will belong to the warehouse 100 for sloc1 and so in 1st transfer oreder system is keeping the goods in 921 whihc is in WM 100

now if sytem wants to pick the goods for 2nd transfer order then for that dont we need to first transfer the goods from 921( -wm 100 ) to 921of warehouse 101 and then from there system will put the goods in the destination bin ????

if my question is not clear then let me know to rephrase it

    Hi Rahul Tyagi,

    Please understand how this works:

    (So, as I ndertood you have two SLocs and they are assigned to two different WHs.)


    When IM movement take splace a negative quant will be created in 921 (since WM stock has to reduce and be in harmony with IM stock level). Executing the WM movement (picking) a positive quant will get to 921 and -quant + +quant will result in 0 (in 921).


    When IM movement take splace a positive quant will appear in interim storage type 921 - in this way WM stock and IM stock will be in harmony with each other.

    You can put the stock (+quant) from 921 to a bin in your WH.

    There's no goods movement between WH1 and WH2. Forget this.

    WH1 and WH2 are not connected. WH2 gets the stock when IM transaction is executed and the goods get to SLoc2.

    Try to do 2-step SLoc-SLoc transfer and trace it (in IM & WM as well, step-by-step). The process will be clearer I guess.

    • Hi,

      so at the time of 313 system post the goods to the interim storage type 902 and at 315 system post the goods from the 902 to destination bin may be shelf or high rack

      I'm afraid you are grasping the wrong end of the stick in this issue.

      Please understand that warehouse management is not in IM. What in IM happens is one thing, what in WM happens it is quite another. Of course, there is link between them, these systems have effect on each other.

      1. When IM movement 313 takes place, no movement takes place in WM. What in WM happens is that a quant of negative quantity appears in interim storage type 921 without WM movements.

      2. When IM movement type 315 takes place no movement takes place in WM. What happens in WM is that a quant of positive quantity appears in interim storage type 921 w/o WM-movements.

      921 in case 1) and in cas 2) is not the same at all!!! 921 in case 1) belongs to WH1, 921 in case 2) belongs to WH2.

      I think first you should understand that WM and IM are separate systems, they have connection trough interfaces.

      Please read carefully what I have written you till now and go trough this processes using reports MB52, MB51 in IM, and LX02, LT22 in WM. This should be done by you, to do these step-by-step and check always the goods movements and stock levels.

      You already understand MM, so I think you can understand WM very easily.

      Please write 'SAP Posting Change' in Google and check the first link. (
