Hello All,

Suppose i order for 100 kg material from vendor A...But wen i received the goods it is 95 kg of material...

But i will do the invoice for full 100 kg material.

Now somewhere i will have to adjust the 5 kg of material for accounting entries...

So how to map this scenario in SAP..?

How the accounting entries will be...??

1.should i go with type 561-withdrawl for scrapping-it is gng to any/gain or loss account

2. or should i make new mov type as a stock in transit loss and connect it with new gl account as per user requirement..

plz suggest me regarding above situations or suggest new one..

OSS Note 392205 - Analysis of stock in transit/correction for split valuation

It explains movement types 557 and 558 to correct certain situations

you shall not receive 95 while 100 got issued, as this would leave 5 in-transit.

If you accept to be billed for 100, then receive 100 and scrap 5 (but use 551 instead of 561)

Creating an own new movement type as a copy of 551 can help to post to seperate accounts and to analyze different kind of scrap postings.
