MB5B is exclusively for getting the stock of a material on any given date..

where as MB51 will give the material documents for a particular material ( all the movements that the materials have undergone).

THis is the only difference.. And if possible can u please elaborate on what you have observed as the difference between the two transactions...

Hi

MB51 is not exactly a report in real sense, however you can get the details of all the movements transacted over a specified period. You can not refer the valuation out this out put as a FI reference and basically it helps you to track the quantity and othere details like special stock for example sub stock.

Where as MB5B is a dynamic report and can always referred for its valuation details in FI, that is closing stock and opening stock, closing value and opeing value.

Hi,

I hope MB51 wil give the report including transfer posting (where no accounting document created), where as in MB5B will produce the report of material douments only which have accounting documents.

Kindly check the documents as suggested above and revert back.

Hi

MB51 provides special stock (subcontracting) where as this you cannot see in MB5B. Compare both the reports for a material and you will get the details.

Hi,

Without giving date in both transactions , you will get the same reports.

Hi,

Try this.

Execute MB5b & Mb51 without giving date inputs. The system give same results.
