Movement types 251 and 201

Hello SCN,

I would just like to ask what is the difference of movement types 251 and 201?

Can they be used for sales?

What are the pros and cons in using both movement types?

Please respond in a clear manner.

Your prompt response will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

    Hi

    Please respond in a clear manner.
    Your prompt response will be much appreciated

    .

    These are highly condemnable

    What do you mean by clear manner?

    Friends who know about query respond to it and share whatever knowledge they have

    Most of the times it will be clear only and you cannot grasp it properly because you may be unclear

    No One needs your appreciation and you cannnot be expect them to be prompt

    You are not running a office to expect others to things promptly

    Regarding what you asked

    I have knowledge about Movement type 251

    One area this is used in IS RETAIL

    In Retail say RELIANCE in Chennai city has about 15 outlets

    All these 15 outlets will have point if sale system that is their billing system or billing machine

    All these billing machines are connected to SAP system in the backend and SAP system is available only in the headoffice of RELIANCE

    Now take an article say PEPSI 200 ml tin

    Across all 15 counters say in a particular day they have sold about 725 tins

    Now this sale information comes to the centralised SAP through IDOCS and gets updated

    When such sales information comes in SAP and an article document that is material document ( to update inventory) and a billing document ( to update financial accounts) gets created

    This material document gets created with Movement type 251 which reduces the warehouse stock and post it to sales

    We define in the POS ---SAP integration config this movement type as 251

    I dont have an SAP access right now to check what is movement type 201

    Regards

    Raja

    Movement Type 201 : Goods issue for a cost center

    The goods can only be withdrawn from unrestricted-use stock.

    Possible special stock indicators:

    u2022 K: Goods withdrawal from consignment stock

    u2022 P: Goods withdrawal from the pipeline

    If you have withdrawals from consignment stock and from pipeline, payables to suppliers ensue.

    Movement Type 251 : Goods issue for sales (without customer order)

    Use this movement type if you have not entered a customer order in SD. In the standard system, the movement is assigned to a cost center.

    The goods can only be withdrawn from unrestricted-use stock.

    Hope this helps.
