The stock comparison function compares stock levels in the Warehouse Management (WM) application with stock levels in the Inventory Management component and searches for differences. To clear differences, you can create a batch input file.

  1. Choose Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Internal Whse Processes ® Physical Inventory ® in Warehouse Management ® Stock comparison from the SAP menu.
  2. In the first section of the initial screen, select data is to be compared for the stock comparison report. Permissible selections include:
  3. Plant and storage location

    Plant and warehouse number

    Warehouse number only

  4. In the output section of the screen, select one of the following additional fields to determine how the information is to be displayed or processed:
  5. With bin inventory

    If you select this option, the system lists the stock quantities at the bin level for Warehouse Management.

    All material data

    With this option you select all stock records for a material for which a difference is found. These records also include the material number, batch, special stock indicator and supplier combinations that have no differences and whose stock quantity is greater than zero.

    This detailed information helps in detecting exactly where the error occurred.

    Create batch input file

    If you select this output option, the system generates a batch input file. This batch input session adapts the stock figures in IM to those in WM.


    The prerequisite for this is that all goods movements to the corresponding warehouse number be blocked. If you only want to see a summary of the differences, we do not recommend using this option. It is best to clarify the causes of the differences first using the output list displayed on the screen before removing them using the batch input file.

  6. Choose Execute.
