    Hi,

    Both are different.

    Posting Block allows you to set a block indicator so that system wont allow to make any stock postings during the Physical inventory period.

    Where as Freeze inventory will Freeze the book inventory i.e. it makes a note of the total inventory of a material and freezes it. so that you can still make stock postings even after creating physical inventory documents.

    For ex:

    Suppose you have set Freeze book inventory for a SL and you are creating a physical inventory document today and currently your total stock in un-res use for a material is 100 in that particular SL.

    After sometime you are entering a GR of say 100 qtys.

    Now as per the physical count - total stock available physically was 90 only then in this case when you do a physical inventory posting - system will do a adjustment of 10 Quantities only and not 110 Quantities.

    i,e. it will consider the freeze stock qty 100 rather than the total stock 200 Qty after the latest GRN.

    Hope its clear.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Posting block - this blocks posting until the physical inventory is completed.

    Freeze book inventory - posting can be done while physical inventory is being done. The inventory differnces are verified against the book inventory.
