There are two movement types with me say 991 and 992. As per requirements,I need to add 411 and 412 with the existing 991 and 992.
I would like to kow that
1. What do we mean by "MOVEMENT TYPES"?
2. What does GI and GR mean? It would be better if I could get some document where in this has been exlained with some good examples.
3. Is 991 related to GI and 992 to GI reversal?
Thanks in advance,

Below are some explanations that youi wanted but just to say that movement types beginning with 9 are not standard movement types in SAP
These are bespoke movement types that somebody has cvreated probably bu copying a standard movement type and then adjusting it to suit the process.
A goods receipt (GR) is a goods movement with which the receipt of goods from a vendor or from
production is posted. A goods receipt leads to an increase in warehouse stock.
A goods issue (GI) is a goods movement with which a material withdrawal or material issue, a
material consumption, or a shipment of goods to a customer is posted. A goods issue leads to a
reduction in warehouse stock.
When you enter a goods movement in the system, you must enter a movement type to
differentiate between the various goods movements. A movement type is a three-digit
identification key for a goods movement. The following table contains examples of movement
Goods Movements and Movement Types
Goods movement Movement type
Goods receipt for a purchase order 101
Goods issue for a cost center 201
Release from quality inspection stock 321
Control Functions of the Movement Type
The movement type has important control functions in Inventory Management.
For example, the movement type plays an important role in
updating of quantity fields
updating of stock and consumption accounts
determining which fields are displayed during entry of a document in the system
When you enter a goods movement, you start the following chain of events in the system:
A material document is generated, which is used as proof of the movement and as a
source of information for any other applications involved.
If the movement is relevant for Financial Accounting, one or more accounting documents
The stock quantities of the material are updated.
The stock values in the material master record are updated, as are the stock and
Depending on the movement type, additional updates are carried out in participating applications.
All updates are based on the information contained in the material document and the financial
accounting document. For example, in the case of a goods issue for a cost center, the
consumption values of the items are also updated.
I hope that this helps
