When you purchase/sell goods you have to indicate the physical or logical movement of materials which leads to a change in stock levels or results in the consumption of the material. For example, you can specify whether the goods movement is from purchase order to warehouse or from sales order to shipping point.

___________________________________________________________________

Did you look in SAP Help? Here it is:

A classification key indicating the type of material movement (for example, goods receipt, goods issue, physical stock transfer).

The movement type enables the system to find predefined posting rules determining how the accounts of the financial accounting system (stock and consumption accounts) are to be posted and how the stock fields in the material master record are to be updated.

Hi,

Movement type is a classification key indicating the type of material movement (for example, goods receipt, goods issue, physical stock transfer).

The movement type enables the system to find predefined posting rules determining how the accounts of the financial accounting system (stock and consumption accounts) are to be posted and how the stock fields in the material master record are to be updated.

For example, Purchase Order deliver to Vendor for 100 materials.Vendor sends the material 100 nos, So in that plant Store person recieves the material against Purchase order so at the point of recieving 100 nos qty have to update and as well as Value also.For updating qty and value w.r.t PO Movement type is the main role.

Assume Reciept register like Raw mtrl.semifinished,etc has separate register

Same type if you recieve raw material automatically sytem posts that document to raw material account in terms of Valuation class. In SAP Material connect with Valuation class,Valuation class assigned to transaction key like BSX,GBB etc so in transaction key we have to assign Valution class with G/L account.

In Movement types relates with Transaction key.

so Goods reciept w.r.t PO 101 Mvt type.

Vendor returns 122 or 161.

Goods issue 201.

Sales 601.

Material sends to Sub contracting vendor 541.

Please check this link for different movement types.

HI Hari,

Movement type: when a material or stock moves from one section to section or one loading area to other loading area or one storage to other storage like anywhere is industry.

they will be named as with some numbers for particular movement. Basically goods issued or receipt are termed in movement types.
