difference between GR reversal and cancellation

Hi,

What is the difference between GR reversal and cancellation?

As per my understanding,

1) We can do GR w.r.t PO Mvt type 101

2) Now i did GR w.r.t PO Mvt type 102.

Result quantity got reversed..

Now ,

1) I did GR w.r.t PO Mvt type 101.

2) Now I selected " return delivery" and " material document"

Result quantity got reversed..

Then What is the difference between GR reversal and cancellation?

Is there any differnce of accounting entry in between them?

      Hi

      Basically reversal or cancellation is same. The reversal of a material document can be done in two ways.

      Reversal of document would refer the original document. It is basically adopted when the user makes some mistakes while making entry in the GR. By referencing the original document, the user can select the items to be selected and post the document. Here, the price of the items in the reversal document would be same as the original document

      The second way to cancellation a goods receipt posting is to post a material document with a reverse movement type. Here, the user has to manually enter the values for items to be selected. The value of the items in the reversal document in such cases may not be same. Here, the price will be either the moving average price or standard price depending on the pricing procedure maintained.

      SAP always recommends a reversal with reference to the original document.

      Regards,

    Hi,

    Both are same .The terminology is only different.

    In both cases you are making movement 101 and reversal is 102.

    All the accouting entries are same

      Hi,

      The accounting entries would be the opposite when you did GR.

      BSX-----credit

      WRX----Debit.

      Also as mentioned in the above thread by our friend,both are not same.

      cancellation is reversal process(102)---If GR is wrongly input

      Return delivery is for poor quality of material delivered(122)

    The basic difference between GR cancellation and return delivery is cancellation is logically cancellation is done when user has entered the data wrongly while creating migo but return delivery is done whenever the material received is found not upto the mark (maybe quality wise) and so tobe returned to vendor.

    for cancellation the movement type is 102 whereas for return delivery it is 122.

    Hi

    Reversal & cancellation both are same, use tcode 102

    Reversal:- To cancel the document we use 102 (Typhographical mistakes done while doing Goods receip with movent type101)

    Return delivery:- It is different, uses for return the maaterial back to the vendor using movement type 122

    Hi,

    Return delivery is sending the material back to vendor, which is not confirming the quality / quantity critria.

    Hi,

    Please see Priyank's reply.

    If the user has done a clerical mistake then you have to do GR reversal/Cancellation. You have to reverse the whole quantity use movement type 102.

    If you want to retrun back the GR quantity partially or fully to the vendor use 122 and return delivery.

    GR cancellation/reversal is not used in Vendor Evaluation where as return delivery with 122 is used in Vendor Evaluation.

    Hope This clears .

    Regards

    Hari.

    Hi,

    While doing GR, pls. use movement type 102 for GR reversal.

    GR reveresal is nothing but cancelling / modyfying.

    hi,

    Explaning in a simple word:

    CANCELLING : The transaction doesn't allow you post for partial qty but you always have to cancel is for the whole qty...ie. if you get the 10 PCS for GR and now if you wanna cancel it then its only possible with all 10 PCS....but not for 9 etc..

    REVERSE : In this you can reverse for the partial qty...ie. w.r.t. above example you can reverse it for 2 pcs or 6 pcs etc...

    Now as far as accounting entries are concerned then normally the entries are same...BUT BUT...you can have it to be posted to the different accounting ....Just because MVT type plays a BIG role in auto. account determination...

    And you can check this in OMWN and further assignments in OBYC for G/L account...

    Hope it helps..

    Regards

    Priyanka.P
