Hello,

when I create a returns of a stock transporting order (purchase order) it touches only the free stock and not the stock of the returns (movement types 677 and 161). Can I configure this, if yes, how?

Perhaps anybody can help me. Thanks a lot.

The returns of a STO with the transaction ME21N is created yet and works well. The only problem is that it touches the free stock and not the stock of the returns. I look for an idea how to customize this case, because we need it urgently. Thanks.

Hi,

ME21N can only create the PO, there must be a GR to get the stock back in.

So how is the receipt being posted?

Surely you haven't modified SAP to do the whole thing in ME21N !!!!!!!!!!!!!! (or is the latest release of SAP one that gives you this option?)

So unless there is a big change to ME21N, you must be posting a GR at which point you could at least post it to QI stock instead of unrestricted.

Or could you flag the PO (STO) item as going straight to QI on receipt?

Hi,

The STO does not act like a sales order, if you reverse an STO it puts the stock back into Unrestricted use.

Basically it sees the whole process as just being a movement of stock from one area (plant) to another and so reversing it just puts it back.

With a sales order the customer may have used or abused the stock and so there is the functionality to put it into returns stock where it can be checked before being put back into unrestricted.

It may not work but have you tried using the quality inspection flag on the return (I am assuming that you are using a 102 / 122 and MIGO?). It is not the same as using returns stock but at least it gives you chance to inspect the stock before it goes back to unrestricted?

I use transaction ME21N (one step) and not MIGO.

Hi,

ME21N only creates the PO (STO) , you have to have used MIGO (or similar) to reverse it even if it is a one-step.
