Buy back process mapping

hello all,

I want to configure buy back scenario in Sd.

For example

I haved sold goods to my customer 2 years ago and now the customers wants to buys the same material or another material in exchange of the old material.

suppose the new material costs 10000 rs and the price evaluated for the old material is 2000 rs then i would sell the material for 8000 rs.

now this old material would be processed and used as raw materials for the new produation of materials.

Can any one help me to configure and map this buy back process in SAP.

also it would be better if any one could explain me how would be cycle for the incoming old material and the outgoing new material in exchage of the new material.

Also tell me what entries should be done against the incoming and outgoing material and the documents generated in this complete scenario.

waiting for reply

    Hi as per your requirement

    you can use the sales return scenario where you just take back the sold material with the referene of invoice their amend the qty and price and do the GR, in GR the system receive the return material in block stock not your unrestricted stock.

    then issue the credit memo to customer, now do the fresh sales order to customer with new material and do invoice,

    in accounts the customer outstanding will be adjusted with Credit memo

    if useful then point please

      yes the above process may help

      but it is limited only if the incoming material is sold only by me.

      what if the incoming material is not sold by me and i am giving and exchange offer for selling my new material.

      how would be sales cycle then?

      and how would we map the process in SAP
