well my company is using movement type 561/562 whenever there is a different b/w physical and sap inventory but 561 and 562 are to maintain initial stocks in SAP so it is not recommended for normal inventory differences.

MI01, MI04 and MI07 is a lengthy process thats why I am asking for movementy type 501/502. Why cannot we use them whenever there is a difference bw physical and sap inventory? what is the purpose of 501 and 502?

Please respond,

Hi,

501/502 is used for GR without PO. When you receive material without PO that time to make GR you can use this movement type. There will be seperate GL assigned to this to have proper information.

For writein / write off you can use physical inventory in SAP.

This situation comes due to discrepency in stock quantity which can be corrected using following procedure.

Create Physical inventory doc with MI01

MI04 for entering count

MI11 for recount or to change the count

MI07 for Posting the difference

Hi

If it is regular inventory differences thn it is better to go with physical inventory transaction.

501 and 502 are GR w/o PO,however this could work but need to check the accounting also.

Hi:

Can you plz explain the scenario,you can do the write off by intial upload movements 561 and 562.

But I have used this in one of my project where the necessity of write off was because of company code split,so single company code splitted in to two hence some plants moved to new company codes,in this case I uploaded materials for the plants under new co code by 561 and used 562 for write off for the materials under old co.code, soas to balance the accounting.

Hope this would helps you.

Cheers
