directing STO available stock reduction in MRP Area
I have MRP Areas enabled.... XX01 is my plant wide MRP and XX02 is for specific storage location.
When MRP creates an STO for SLOC to SLOC transfer, that is from MRP area XX01 to XX02, in MD04 the STO is being reduced from the plant-wide MRP area available stock. I'm wondering if there's any way to control this, so that I could have the reduction be done off the XX02 MRP Area instead?

I confused, if the stock is being sent from MRP area XX01 to XX02 then it should be reducing the stock in the plant wide MRP area.
Have you implemented the special procurement key BADI to populate issuing storage location. If you haven't then you will get a blank issuing storage location which will default to being supplied by the plant MRP area.
Also you need to make sure the material master MRP area data for XX02 has been created? If it hasn't then it doesn't matter if the issuing storage location is populated correctly the demand will fall into the plant level MRP area.
