    Hi,

    In return PO scenario you do not refer to the original PO item against which you received the goods formerly - independently from previous POs&GRs you can send out the goods.

    You create a PO item and mark the return item checkbox.

    You can send out the goods:

    - via normal goods movement (MIGO > "Goods receipt" - "Purchase order" > material document will be created, mvt 161)

    - via SD delivery (A, in vendor master (XK02) a customer master has to be assigned and return vendor checkbox has to be flagged. The material has to be extended to the sales area of your plant as well as the customer master that is assigned to the vendor...please also check your return deluvery settings in SPRO > MM > Purchasing > PO > Returns to Vendor; B, create delivery VL10B > picking&packing&GI VL02N, mvt 161)

    - a dummy example: you can use it e.g after initial stock upload when it is not possible to find previous material document (GR) and use mvt 122 returns

    - you can use this at any time when you do not want to refer to the original PO item or you do not know against which PO item the goods were received originally

    Hi,

    There can be scenarios where business normally doesnt send materials back to vendor when a rejection happens rather it returns the materials when the return qty reaches a full truck capacity or by the end of every month.

    So in the above scenario we make use of return PO with 161 mov.type.

    Hope its clear.

    Regards,
