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.
·Plant and storage location
·Plant and warehouse number
·Warehouse number only
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.
