Customer Return Process

We have return delivery from customer and we like to return part back to vendors. I am getting confuse which movement type I should use. Business likes to put the return material from customer into blocked stock ,until it returns to vendor. Reason they want put part into blocked so it will not be picked by another sales order.

As per my understanding to be process going to be as follows.

Return sales order->Inbound Delivery->Return to Vendor</b>

Which movement type I should use against the inbound delivery and what will be next step to return back to vendor from blocked stock. We also use Return PO (Movement Type 161).

Blocked stock returns (non-valuated, not unrestricted-use) (movement type 651)

Unrestricted-use stock (movement type 653)

Quality inspection stock (movement type 655)

Blocked stock (movement type 657)

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Use Movement Type "657" to take the return stock from customer. As a result of this stock will get posted to Blocked Stock.

To achieve this go to Schedule line category of Return sales (For e.g. DN ) in transaction VOV6 and assign the movement type as "657" instead of and then run the complete new cycle of Customer Return / Vendor Return and check whether your requirements have been met.
