Third party materials stock updating

Dear All,

We have a third party scenario wherein we create sales order for a material with item catagory TAS. Purchase requisition creates & we then create a PO referencing PR. This PO sends to vendor & vendor delivers goods directly to customer. This works correct for material type HAWA since while doing goods receipt(MIGO), consumption is done but we have one another material type "ZPOS" which is having only quantity updation and not value updation in customising.

For this material when we do goods receipt, quantity gets updated in system so how this quantity can be moved now?

Can you please let me know what process we should follow in this case so that stock should not get updated. What we are doing wrong here.

    At first is ZPOS copy of HAWA material type or any new one copying other??

    Always keep in mind that quantity n value gets updated based on

    1. Mvt type used while GR when

    2. Material type has such settings allowed and

    3. When you have valuation setting done under under SPRO

    And d other param. For value updations are:

    Price control at MMR

    Valuation class

    Valuation category

    Now among this its upto u which suits better for u..but one thing is imp.

    Ie. if u make settibgs for quanity updations at above settings, then yes, system will always update can just bypass few things by using proper mvt type at GR

    • your ZPOS is an unvaluated material like UNBW in SAP standard.

      The tragedy with this setup is that it creates stock when you post a receipt, which is different to any othe stock type if the PO has an account assignment.

      But the standard third-party process does not require a goods receipt, hence you should not do it, so it will not create inventory.

      for the existing inventory...scrap it with 551 movement, it will not affect Finance as it is non-valuated. or count it to zero usinng the phyiscal inventory transactions.
