Movement type 161 and moving average price questions


I have a question regarding how SAP updates the MAP during returns processing. It is not possible for the client to find the correct document to do a return so they dont use 122, and the price for the return is each time a discussion with the vendor.

So when a PO with return indicator is made, and a price is set on the PO, the system uses this value to update the stock value during GI of delivery. The MAP is updated and if the price on the PO is low the MAP will increase and for some more expensive materials it creates problems and unrealistic MAP.

Is there a way to get the return only use theĀ  existing MAP during goods movement and not the price in PO for returns? So that the return process does not change the MAP?

Or is there a better way to solve this?

Your PO created for material and material is received but now you want to return material to vender where material have MAP (Moving average price calculate on Total stock value / Total stock quantity)

Again you want current MAP material should carry into return PO, so better check condition type related for your material price in PO. Now try keeping T(Moving cost) in condition category for that condition type in t.code: M/06 and correspondingly update your MM Pricing procedure with changed condition type in t.code:M/08

Now try creating return PO and check which MAP picks by material!
