Hi there:Please see my reply in blue

It will

Can any one explain me in what case it affects to stock account?

It will

Please see below two scenario which will trigger MR11 to clear 1 PO quantity:10,GR 10,IR 11 2 PO quantity:10,GR 11,IR 10 Due to quantity difference above two scenarios will trigger MR11 which is GR/IR clearing. For fist one:It will decrease quantity once finish executing MR11,it will generate finace document: dr inventory material stock cr GR/IR For second one:It will increase quantity once ifnish executing MR11, it will generate finace doc dr GR/IR, cr inventory material stock account Just let me know if you have further question.

Hi Deepak & Allen,

I agree to the explanation of Allen of MR11 but disagree also, because, in the example where he shows that GR is 10Qty and IR 11, so a financial document will be posted.. is not the correct approach.. in that case instead of posting through MR11, actual situation should be analysed and a credit memo should be raised on the Vendor, this would give a good Audit trail and clear accounts.. instead of accepting the 1 extra invoiced by the vendor..

If we follow what you have shown by way of Financial entry, then Vendor gets paid for 1 qty extra which the Company would never have received.

But Yes, I agree, that this is the situation when the Stock Accounts are getting triggered by MR11.. and it all depends on business case, how to deal with it. To add to this, please note that inventory Account would only get hit, if the stock is lying on the date of MR11, else it would post to a price difference Account (OBYC Key - PRD)

I am pasting a link of MR11 transaction explanation, where you can read all about MR11.

Dear FICO:

Please see my comments in blue

I agreed that if IR is 11,then this situation will be analyzed and vendor should be raising credit memo, then we will be creating subsequent credit memo accordingly.

Yes, I just listed all possibilities which will trigger GR/IR to be cleared,also to assign correct G/L account is necessary

Thanks for this linkage!
