***and by the way for the Invoice to work between Cross-Company Plants, you need also to have a Sales Org for the Supplying Plant and a Pricing Determination Procedure



PI01 Intercompany: fixed amount per material unit

PI02 Intercompany: percentage of the net invoice amount

These condition types specify that the price charged by the delivering plant to the sales organization is shown as a statistical value in the sales order and an effective charge in the internal invoice.

The condition records you create and maintain for intercompany billing are the same kind of records that you create for pricing in general.

IV02 Inter-company % ERLOS Revenue


The following steps have to be followed in order to configure stock transport order between two plants.

Stock transfers that include deliveries and billing documents/invoices are only possible between plants belonging to different company codes.

If you want to carry out a cross-company-code stock transport order with delivery but without a billing document, you must set the Relevant for Billing (data element FKREL) indicator in Customizing of the item type to "blank" (Not relevant for billing).

The following applications are involved in this type of stock transfer:

• Purchasing (MM-PUR) in entering the order

• Shipping (LE-SHP) in making the delivery from the issuing plant

• Billing (SD-BIL) in creating the billing document for the delivery

• Inventory Management (MM-IM) at goods receipt in the receiving plant

Invoice Verification (MM-IV) at invoice receipt in the receiving

Transfer of goods from one location to another location, it may be between plants within the same company code or in different company code's plants.

within the company code, but plants,

receiving plant will raise the STO in Supplying/issuing plant-ME21n,

Supplying plant will deliver the goods to receiving plants ,

then we need to pick n post the Goods Issue-VL02n,

now when we can observe that the STO qty will be added into receiving plant and reduced in Delivering plant,

To do this, we need do prior customization in SPRO-IMG,-

material should be created in both plants( receiving & Supplying)

-maintain the stock only in supplying plant

-create a dummy customer in supplying plant's sales area(if u have one sales area, create in tat comp code n sales area)

-assign this customer number to receiving plant's details along with the sales area,

-Assign the STO doc type(UB) to Supplying plant, along with checking rule

-Assign the Del type (NL/NLCC) to Supplying n receiving plant.

*Del type=NL is not relevant for billing, where as NLCC is relevant for billing

rewards if it helps
