Difference Between IM and WM


I am facing a issue .

A material is transferred from one plant to another plant by 301 Mvt Type.

Both the storage locations of the plant ( issuing and receiving ) are attached to a single Warehouse.

In the recieving Location stock is shown in IM only and not in WM .

This transaction happened some two years back.

Storage Location is not HU managed.

I checked in the LX23 and it is showing the difference of 1 Piece between IM and WM ( in WM it is not there).

How to clear this diffference?

I had checked SAP notes 535043,660009and 583723 but remain inconclusive.

Please advise.

Best Regards

    As transaction is 2 years back, are you sure at that time also Both Plant+sloc combination was attached to warehouse? If it is like that, then have you created TO for material document generated and also check have you confirm that TO.
