GR posting


Could you please advise :

I have found out that the invoice was posted prior to GR so the GR value in PO history is different for GR and IR (amount in loc.cur.)

as well as the different can be seen on GR/IR account (not cleared). The invoice and GR was posted in 2011.

Could you please explain how i can correct the GR/IR account and if i have to be done as this posting pos made in 2011?

    Use MR11, give the PO, item and any other values in the selection screen (like value variance) to constrict your selection to the only material document relevant here, then you should be able to only write off the GR/IR balances relevant for this specific posting alone.

    • So the issues is that on one hand you see GR-IR difference, but MR11 is not picking it up, then you have only choice of making a direct posting to the GR-IR account. For this you have to allow manual posting to GR-IR account by changing the account settings and then carry this adjustment posting. Once done disable the manual posting allowed flag.

      All these anyway you can do in 2012 only, so if someone looks at 2011, they still will see the GR-IR balance. You should have done this as part of year-end activities, since it is not done, now you cannot post in 2011.

    Dear Mark,

    Please note that transaction MR11 is only concerned with clearing the

    GR/IR account for QUANTITY differences. If there is no quantity

    difference (only value difference) at the item level, MR11 will not

    report anything.

    In MM you could make a subsequent credit/debit to clear the GR/IR
    account for value differences.

    Otherwise the GR/IR account could only be cleared in FI (e.g. using
    transaction F.13).

    Refer below notes.

    Hi Mark,

    For the posting you need to open period which is already closed using Tcode MMPI and maintaining user parameter

    1. Parameter ID: MMPI_READ_NOTE
    2. Parameter Value: YYYYMMDD

    But it is not at all advisable and it should be used only in worst case scenario. Please refer note 487381. It should not at all be executed in production system´╗┐.

    Happy to Help
