transfer post

Dear All,

Inconsistencies have been noticed in the unit of measurement in the existing material masters. Also, migration of the numeric numbers into the new alpha numeric numbers are required so as to enable correct determination of re order level. If the unit of measurement is different (as it needs to be corrected) between new and old material masters, how the migration/ stock transfer vide movement type 309 be done?

    hi

    Create New Material with correct unit of measure and use the movement type material to material transfer.

    Hi Koluthugan,

    I can suggest you one way out for it.

    You can add alternative unit of measurement in old material master.

    While doing transfer posting using 309 mov type you have to change unit of entry as per change UOM in new material master.

    So your existing inventory will be calucated as per new altnative UOM tranfer of M to M should not creat a problem.

    Thanks and regards

    If the base unit of old material A is different from base unit of new material B, then it is impossible to use 309 movement.

    In that case you have to goods issue the stock from A with e.g. 201 to cost center and subsequently do a 202 movement for material B to the same cost center.

    Of course you have to make sure that both materials have in relation the same price, otherwise you will leave a balance at the cost center.
