in SPRO -> Define Item Categories, what is the meaning of the "Returns" option? The help says: This item is a returns item if the field is selected.

What is the consequence in the process, if I use this item category?

Thanks, but in the process, what it means? Is a inbound delivery expected? Can I create an invoice without MIGO?

My question was would be affected in the process, if I hook this box.

I understand that this field is used for many internal validation as SAP should know that this particular order is a return order. When the item category is enabled with this check box (TVAP-SHKZG), this flows into VBAP-SHKZG during sale order creation. This VBAP-SHKZG is used in many programs . I presume that apart from identifying the order as returns from the document type/category, SAP need one more field at item category level to have a better control during internal validation.
