I want to know if is there a way to use the difference of an Inventory Document without posting it. Our financial department take some time to post the differences in the stock but we want to take them in to account in our planning (MD04 transaction) without waiting them.

This conflict of interests has to be solved between your departments as there is no way in SAP to adjust the quantities independent of the values.

How many counts have to be corrected (had to be corrected in the previous years) before Finance posts the difference, how big is the portion on the total counted items? This way you can gather facts which helps to evaluate the importance of a diligent analysis before posting the difference vs getting an accountable stock quantity for planning. (keep in mind that the inventory was probably also a long time wrong before you conducted the count)
