Confirming the TO manually

  1. To confirm a transfer order (TO) manually, choose Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Internal Warehouse Processes ® Stock Transfer ® Confirm Transfer Order ® Single Document ® In One Step from the SAP menu.
  2. To confirm a single transfer order item, choose Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Internal Warehouse Processes ® Stock Transfer ® Confirm Transfer Order ® Single Item ® In One Step from the SAP menu.

  3. Enter the required data.
  4. You can specify whether the transfer order is to be processed in the foreground (H) or in the background (D). (see Foreground/Background Processing)

    If the Close TR indicator is selected, the system regards the underlying transfer requirement as closed when the TO is confirmed and sets the header status to delivery completed. This prevents transfer requirements from remaining open when you want to close them. If you do not select this indicator the transfer requirement will remain open if the processed quantity is less than the required quantity.

  5. Choose Enter.

Depending on the processing option you selected, the system will either report that the transfer order has been confirmed (background processing) or display an overview of all TO items (foreground processing).

If your system settings require entering Actual Data, a dialog box appears for this purpose.

If you choose Input List on the initial screen, the system displays the following tab pages:

The system transfers each item that has been processed to the Confirmed internally tab page.

The status confirmed internally means that the confirmation has not yet been posted. If you exit the transaction before saving the transfer order, the internal confirmation will be lost and the items will be returned to the active work list.

The system transfers all items for which confirmation has been saved to this tab page.

  1. To confirm the items that are in the active work list, choose Edit ® Confirm internally.
  2. For final confirmation of the transfer order choose Transfer order ® Post.
