Automation in Stock Transfer

Dear All,

Suppose there is one material which is a by-product. On its production (101) entry will be like this.

Material Name:- Pig Iron


Production Scrap Inventory (Pig Iron) Debit - Stock Account

Inventory Change Cr - P&L Account

Now the same will be converted in to RM category with new material i.e. Pig Iron One

At that time entry will be


Raw Material Inventory (Pig Iron One) Debit - Stock Account

Production Scrap (Pig Iron) Cr. - Stock Account

Now my question is what about my inventory change amount as it should also be knocked-off to have its P&L impact as in abov entry, there is a stock to stock transfer and not change in P&L.

So I want a trigger entry like below.


Inventory change (New Code) Dr. (Pig Iron) - P&L Account

RM Consumption for Re Processing Pig Iron Cr. (Pig Iron One) - P&L Account

After this invemtory it will be very clear to guage my P&L impact and also the same can be further used for consumption.

So how to get this trigger entry (No.3) automatically as entries 1 & 2 is as per normal practice.

    what you describe is not by-product but scrap-postings. You could save your material transfers and the postings if you in fact used the raw material pig iron one as by-product. You could have a planned qunatity of by-products but then always decide at confirmation time what the actual quantity of by-product was.

    best regards,
