Goods issue (movmt typ 601) through MB1B/MB11


I have a critical issue here. The scenario is:

Sales order >deivery >Goods issue-->Invoice has been completed and sent to customer. Goods issue happened without movement type as they are using customized schedule line category where they have removed 601 in the movement type field and left it blank. Now there is no material movement recorded even though PGI has been done. System shill showing that material in stock.

Reversal of all entries - Invoice, excise inv, and PGi is an option but the busiess is reluctant to do that and wants a workaround. We tried using MB11 with 601 movement type but we are getting the following error

"Update control of movement type is incorrect (entry 601 X X)" .

This relates to some update controls in movement type.

I tried in OMJJ but its not editable. Also not sure what entry is missing so that we can update at table level. Though we update at table level, its not showing in 'Update Control of Movement type setings'

Any feasible alternative is much appreciated.

    First of all, I dont understand as to why they were using customized schedule line category and also for what purpose ??

    Coming to the query, couple of options comes to my mind.


    Try to create one more delivery against the same sale order since stock would have been confirmed against that schedule line. Of course, you need to change the standard schedule line category in sale order before trying to generate delivery which again, it depends on your VOV5 settings where the standard schedule line category should have been assigned in Manual tab, at least.


    Reverse all those documents, change the schedule line category in sale order, do PGI with 601, make an invoice


    In OMJJ, you need to assign TCode MB1B under the tab Allowed Transactions but if you ask me, I dont recommend this under whatsoever reasons.

      Hi Lakshmipathi

      Thanks for your quick response.

      They were using the custom schline cat for material BOM, which would have TAQ as item cat for main item and TAE for subitems. TAQ has CP and TAE has CN as schd.line categories. What they have done is copied CP to ZP and removed 601 from the movement type field and also removed availability check.

      In this scenario what has happened is, they wanted to create a production BOM and while creating the main material (KIT), they have used item cat group ERLA instead of using NORM since the BOM was production BOM and not sales BOM.

      So this has triggered item cat ZTAQ in sales order with schd.line ZP and hence the goods were issued without any material doc/accounting entries for goods movement. The same was invoiced and send to customer. Now they realised that the stock position of the main material has not changed inspite of goods issue.

      Option1 - Tried creating a delivery again but it says items already delivered in VL01N.

      Option 2 - the client is reluctant to do it as they hav already sent the invoice and excise docs to the customer

      Option 3 - OMJJ already has the transaction MB1A and MB1B added for mvmt type 601. We got the error i explaied above abt update control when we were making an entry in MB1A with 601 mvmt type.

      The other alternative we thought of was posting goods issue through MB1A using mvmt type 231.

      Any other suggestions?
