    By simply changing the GL account assignment in OBYC, the inventory value wouldn't get transferred from old GL to new GL. It may be noted that the GL assigned would get impacted when there is a transaction being processed for the material such as receipts, issues, price changes etc. So in your case, it wouldnt be possible.

    Alternately, you can try (with help of MM consultant) by dropping the stock through stock confirmations (movement type 702). The accounting entry would be as follows

    Inventory Loss A/c ........Dr

    Inventory A/c .................Cr

    Later, you can change/replace the desired GL account (Spl Inventory GL) in OBYC for the same valuation class of the material and re-upload the material quantity into SAP using movement type 501. The entry will be as follows.

    Special Inventory A/c ......Dr

    Stock Upload A/c .............Cr.

    Ensure that the price is maintained the same. The inventory loss and stock upload accounts can be offsett of doing a transfer posting using FB50L.

    By above, you can have the same material with a change of desired GL account. Hope it meets your requirement.
