    161 Return for purchase order

    If a purchase order item is marked as a returns item, the returns to vendor are posted using movement type 161 when the goods receipt for purchase order is posted.

    Movement type 161 has the same effects as movement type 122.

    311 Transfer posting storage location to storage location in one step

    The quantity is transferred from unrestricted-use stock of the issuing storage location to unrestricted use in the receiving storage location.

    Possible special stock indicators: E, K, M, Q

    See also 321, 343, 349, 455 for other stock types.

    I would like to send materials from a plant to an outside warehouse, still our ownership, and then sell to the customer. I would like to send customer specific information with the materials, but I do not have a sales order yet at that moment.

    How do I proceed?

    Use consignment fill up to transfer stock from your plant to the customer warehouse and when the customer consumes these goods, use consignment issue order to sell it to the customer.
