Profit Center Transfer via Stock Transfer Order

0 Kudos


Here is my situation:

  • We currently use a standard 2-step stock transfer order to move product from one plant to another, with delivery, no billing, using purchase order document UB
  • All plants belong to the same company code.
  • No markup on the stock value, simply transferred at cost
  • Material ledger is not active
  • Movement is via movement type 641, with a movement type 101 upon receipt at the receiving plant.
  • At movement type 641, the goods are shown as "in transit" for the receiving plant.  A financial document is created showing the transfer from the sending profit center to the receiving profit center, even that the goods are still in transit
  • At movement type 101, no financial document is created, just receipt to unrestricted stock for the receiving plant

Request from the business is that the "in transit" inventory remain the responsibility of the sending plant, until it is received by the receiving plant

The system is ECC 6.0, and the Classic GL is active

Struggling to see what the trigger is for this in the customizing.  Appreciate any assistance or insight you can provide

It's standard sap function. For standard stock transfer 2 steps, the accounting document is on 641 movement type. While 101 only move for qty only. Without doing this you can't see stock in transit in MB52 or MB5T.
