MB1A v MB11 stock adjustments

Hi All

Currently, we are using the MB1A mvt type 201 (write off to Cost Centre) as a method of writing off our lost stock. This is followed by the usual TR/TO conversion and confirmation.

I recently read that it may be possible to use MB11 to write off (or on) stock losses (or gains) using the correct mvt types (711/712)

Are there any pitfalls in using MB11 over MB1A/LB10/LT12?

Are there any transactions I need to perform following MB11? I couldnt find anything else to do after transacting MB11! IM and WM stocks were correct.

Finance are OK with the current process of writing off stock to a cost centre but I expect the accounting documents created using MB11 would be the prefered process.

Thanks in advance

Darren

If you do the MB11 with movement type 711, what storage type do you enter?

I cannot enter any storage type except the interim storage types, as my system is customized to not allow IM movement for WM storage types that are not interim storage types.

If yours is customized differently and you dont enter 998 as storage type, then it is obvious that you cannot see the different in 998 storage type.

The storage type can be viewed with LX02 transaction
