What is the purpose of Transactions - BSD and BSX in OBYC

Hi Friends

Please help me to understand the purpose to use transactions - BSD ( Inventory posting ) & BSX ( Inventory posting ) in OBYC.

I think both are for the same purpose only, but you can see the link with the BSX is with different movement types - you can see the same in Table - T156W.

Not only here, in so many areas SAP has given the more options like this - you can check the downpayment special gl indicator total 3 indicators are there.

We can create our own transaction event key and we can link with the movement types.

May be SAP has given as extra option in this regard.

Below is the SAP help given for the same:

*+Supplementary entry for stock (BSD)

This account is posted when closing entries are made for a cumulation run. This account is a supplementary account to the stock account; that is, the stock account is added to it to determine the stock value that was calculated via the cumulation. In the process, the various valuation areas (for example, commercial, tax), that are used in the balance sheet are taxed separately.+*

*Stock posting (BSX)

This transaction is used for all postings to stock accounts. Such postings are effected, for example:

In inventory management in the case of goods receipts to own stock and goods issues from own stock

In invoice verification, if price differences occur in connection with incoming invoices for materials valuated at moving average price and there is adequate stock coverage

In order settlement, if the order is assigned to a material with moving average price and the actual costs at the time of settlement vary from the actual costs at the time of goods receipt

Because this transaction is dependent on the valuation class, it is possible to manage materials with different valuation classes in separate stock accounts.


Take care to ensure that:

A stock account is not used for any transaction other than BSX

Postings are not made to the account manually

The account is not changed in the productive system before all stock has been booked out of it

Otherwise differences would arise between the total stock value of the material master records and the balance on the stock account.*
