Query on Returns

Dear friends

On going through some SD Certification questions, I found a question which is reproduced below:-

The answers given are (a) and (d) but I feel "(c)" is also true. Can you please confirm whether my understanding is correct and the questionnaire which I have gone through is wrong.

Which of the following are true regarding returns?

(a) Information is not passed over to accounting because of a posting block.

(b) A return order must reference another order.

(c) The inventory for returns is valuated.

(d) A return order can be created without referencing another document.

(e) A credit memo cannot be created until the goods issue has been posted for the returns delivery.

For information, I have tested a return scenario and after doing PGR and checked in MCdot9, the stock value has increased.

thanks

    Hello,

    If you recieve the return material to a non-valuated plant/storage then the value will not get updated.

    When you are testing, you are receiving the returned material to the same plant from which the you have made the outbound delivery (valuated plant). That is the reason why the system updated the material value.

    In realtime scenario, the return material will not be received into unrestricted stock.

      Thanks for the information dear Prasanth

      As I mentioned, I have tested a scenario for returns and the storate location is not unrestricted. Its only a seperate storage location created for returns.

      The question asked is about normal returns and in that way, answer 'c' is also correct. So from certification point of view, SAP should give points if the candidate select this option.

      Nevertheless, still I am expecting more inputs from other members !!!!!

      thanks

    hello, friend.

    i suggested a solution in your other posting for the same issue.

    in summary, 'c' is not always correct as there are some returns scenarios wherein the materials are no longer marketable or must be destroyed by law. returns can, therefore, be non-valuated to avoid inflating your inventory or your profit margin (resulting from decrease in cost of goods sold, not considering credit memos).

    further, you can also set up returns so that they will be returned to blocked/restricted/returns stock and/or a different storage location.

    regards.

      Thanks for the information dear Jonathan. Still what I am thinking is that if we consider standard sales process made from a manufacturing plant which is a normal sales process, item "c" is also correct.

      This is also taking into consideration, the question asked is about normal returns and in that way, answer 'c' is also correct. So from certification point of view, SAP should give points if the candidate select this option.

      Nevertheless, still I am expecting more inputs from other members !!!!!

      thanks
