In SAP every movement of goods is followed by one movement type and movement type trigged transaction event keys.

Each movement result material documents and accounting documents.

Some times ur business process need to post the goods /material , so that only quantity to be updated and not value and u can go for new movement type creation.and assigne new movement type to transaction event key/New transaction event key.

Note:T.Code :OMJJ is to define new movement types as follows:

1. Once you have carried out the activity, the system displays a dialog

box for field selection. In this, you can restrict the movement

types you work with to various fields. To copy a movement type,

select the field Movement type and choose Continue. The dialog box

Define work area appears.

2. In the dialog box Define work area, enter the movement type you want

to copy in the From: field. In the To: field, enter the name of the

new movement type you want to create. To go to the overview of the

selected movement types, choose Continue.

3. Select the movement type you want to copy, and choose Edit -> Copy


Overwrite the selected movement type with the new movement type

(beginning with 9, X, Y, or Z) and copy all dependent entries.

The system copies all control indicators from the reference movement

type to the new movement type.

4. Check all views for the new movement type and, if necessary, change

the control indicators. Please note that some views have a detail


5. Copy the reversal movement type and enter it in the view

Reversal/follow-on movement types.
