Certain transactions result in a data transfer from the R/3 System to the R/2 System. "Message to IM" is a communication indicator, they affect how and when the transmission of communication documents to the R/2 System take place. The following information applies to the transfer order created for the 40 pallets of material in the example:

  • If you use the communication indicator "1" for the Source item field (immediate confirmation and transfer of a communication document to R/2), no quant is built in the goods receipt (GR) area. Instead, one communication document is created for each pallet resulting in 40 communication documents.

  • If you use the communication indicator "2" for the Source item field, and you have identified the material as a non-critical material, the process is cumulative and negative quants are created in the GR area. In this case, data for all 40 pallets is contained in one communication document for the negative quant in the GR area.
