Movement type 671 (copy) to blocked stock instead of unrestricted use


I want to post the stock from a return delivery (created with reference to return line of a stock transport order) to blocked stock instead of unrestricted use stock.

Standard SAP uses delivery item category NLRN (Return StockTransItm) and movement type 671 (TR to stock in transit).

I want to do the same thing that movement type 671 does but post the GR to blocked stock.

Any ideas,

Best regards,

    Dear ,

    Normally the process for intercompany 'return' stock transfer is as


    1) Create an intercompany stock transfer order with flag 'Return'

    (transaction ME21) or an item with the return flag (field RETPO)

    2) Create a delivery with VL10B (or VL04)

    Cross-company, delivery type NCR, item category NCRN

    Intra company, delivery type NLR, item category NLRN

    The delivery type will be assigned via Customizing IMG -> Materials

    Management -> Purchasing -> Purchase Order -> Returns Order -> Store


    3) Create with the transaction MIGO a goods receipt from the receiving

    plant (the plant that created the NB purchase order for return -

    therfore the quantity is negative) with movement type 101

    (this step is only necessary with the two-step procedure).

    The goods receipt will NOT be created with reference to the delivery,

    that means, that the returns delivery will not be updated. In

    the system posts a goods issue with reference to the

    returns purchase order that is the system converts

    the movement type due to the returns indicator.

    Cross company 161

    Intra company 161

    If the one-step procedure is used, step 3 needs not to be performed,

    automatically posts the negative goods receipt when performing step 4

    The quantity is then transferred to the transit stock.

    4) Posting of goods issue via the delivery; Button 'Goods issue' -

    starting with 4.6 the button is changed to 'Goods receipt'.

    In background a goods receipt is performed

    Cross company

    Two step procedure 673

    One step procedure 675 (step 3 with mov.type 161 is automatically



    Two step procedure 671

    One step procedure 677 (step 3 with mov.type 161 is automatically

    automatically posted)

    5) Create a credit for it

    6) and check this credit.

    In the standard it is not foreseen that the returns of cross-company

    stock transport orders arrive a blocked returns stock. As you found,

    in Note 430074, the relevant movement types for this process are 671,673

    675 and 677. As indicated in the documentation you have, these movement

    types transfer returns into unrestricted-use stock. Therefore, if you

    wish to place these particular returns in blocked stock, you will need

    to perform another movement from unrestricted-use stock once the return

    has been received as such.

    I am sorry I can not provide a more satisfactory solution.

      Hi Mr.

      I´ve tried to use a standard SAP process "Return Transit Stock" using the moviment type 671.

      But when i do the Goods Receipt throug VL02N occur the message error below.

      Deficit of PU GR quantity 1.000 S50 : 6054231 4094 1200

      Message no. M7021


      Shortfall below the specified stock level or quantity amounting to 1.000 S50.

      I saw throug MB5T and there is a Stock in Transit, so i don´t know why the system doesn´t function.

      Thanks for any comments,

    It is totally impossible to get a stock in transit to a blocked stock status in a receiving plant. The main problem is that we can only use unrestricted stock in transit.
