how to balance the accounts after sto if GR is not done as goods not reciev

Hi Experts,

I m facing a query, In case where the STO is done from recieving plant, and delivery has been generated and goods issue is been posted in the supplying plant. but the good have not reached in the recieving plant as the good are still in the route for a long time, say 1 or 2 month. Now an accounting entry is been generated in supplying plant and the value of the goods are reduced there. Now while creating balance sheet the difference in stocks of the plants are coming. so how in the system can we reverse the entry or should we make a new account for goods in transit which should be presented in both the plants where we can generate the entries?

Thanks

Prashant

    After creating STO & runing the material doc in VL10B, check stock overview in MMBE for both the plant. supplying plant will show material in on transit stock & receiving plant will show material in on order stock. You can view material difference in this view.

    I guess this might help.

      Hi Arpit,

      Thanks for the suggestion, appreciated. But my question is that the goods have left the shipping point of the supplying plant but they are still on voyeage or on the way for a longer time. Meanwhile the statements are prepared where the statements are prepared which has an updation in profit center. In MMBE the stock will show the way you said but i wish to balance the profit center because the goods are not recieved by the recieving plant, even if we do a stock return it would never prepare the STO of that period, and in actual we are doing a stock return for a stock which was never transferred.

      I gave a try finding out what can be done so that this problem never occurs again. STO intra-company uses schedule lin cat. NN which has a goods movement type 647 which is "ST goods in transit" this gives an accounting entry of finished inventory dr and finished inventory cr. after the PGI is done. Now changing the movement type to 601 that is "GD goods issue" gives an entry of Finished inventory Dr and Raw Materials Consumed Cr. I think this should change the profit center only after GR is done. Please let me know whether I m right or Wrong.

      Thanks

    Hi Prashant,

    The inventory level in one plant should show as In Transit Stock, just as Arpit mentioned in the previous post. In your case the stock in lost in between. There is probably some error in the creation of the STO. One way to go about this problem is create a Return STO. Balance the stock in the supplying plant. Then recreate the STO to see if it works.

    Create a return STO with return set on ME21N transaction. (Do not reverse the plants, they should be as in the initial STO)

    Create a return replenishment delivery (outbound delivery) with reference to return STO created - VL10B transaction

    Posting the good issue - negative good receipt with reference to the outbound delivery - MIGO transaction (movement type changed automatically from 101 to 161)

    You have stock in transit

    Posting the good receipt - negative good issue with reference to the outboud (return) delivery - VL02N.

    Will look more into this problem. Let me know if this helps. Thnx- Switesh!
