GR for Cross-Company STO's


I need some clarification on why it is still possible to GR with reference to Cross-Company STO even if the qty has not yet been issued by the issuing plant?

Ex. My STO is 2000. I goods issued 1000, and received the 1000. Now the remaining 1000, even if it hasn't been issued can still be received with reference to the STO. Why is this possible? I know that it can be received with reference to the Delivery, but referencing via STO is also possible.

    the process is defined like any other external procurement.

    Because of this SAP does not (and cannot) check how many was issued if you only reference the PO.

    • From my point of view, you are either discussing theory or you have a problem in your organisation.

      First of all educate your user to receive with reference to a delivery note in case of intra and inter company movements. And tell them the benefit of doing this: e.g. the issued quantity is defaulted, the issued batch gets defaulted. In general one just needs to verify and save.

      If your warehouse receives material (that is no yet issued), then the question is: are these receivers doing something wrong, or do they just what they need to do ?

      I mean, if the has material physically arrived, then they are supposed to receive it. Especially in case of dangerous goods, the accurate and timely recording is necessary in case of any emergency case (as information for fire brigade and insurance companies).

      Why would you punish the receiver if the sender has not done his job?
