Hi Gurus,

Please correct if any mistakes.

1. LT22 Display Open TOs

https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/1329015 1/7
3/20/2019 WM Cycle Counting Process

2. LT12 Confirm the Open TOs

3. LS12 Block Storage Type

4. LX26 Create CC Document

5. LX22 Inventory Overview

6. LI03n Display Inventory Document

7. LI04 Print Warehouse Inventory List

8. LI11n Enter Count Results

9. LI12n Change Cycle Count Results

10. LI14 Recount

11. LI20 Clear Diffenences at WM level

12. LI21 Clear Diffenences at IM level

I am little bit NOT clear in the final step... why to do LI21. Also some info from FI clearance will be
helpful too.

Thanks in Advance.

Hello,

The process you have outlined is correct. Here steps 1-3 are the preparatory for initiating a cycle
count.

For details you can refer

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_47x200/helpdata/en/c6/f8406c4afa11d182b90000e829fbfe/frameset.htm

Regarding LI21:

Since the inventory in a WM managed Sloc is "always supposed to" be in-sync with IM, once you
carry out the inventory at the WM level and you enter / clear off inventory differences in WM only,
your storage bin / quant level data gets updated, however you haven't as yet told the system how it
should reconcile the updated data ( happened as a result of WM inventory clearance) to tie / match
up with inventory in IM (at the Sloc level) . LI21 is what will do this for you. Hence sequentially, you
carry out clearing in WM first and then do the clearing in IM as well. Now, since WM changes
reflect/update the data finally at the IM level, so when you carry out WM inventory clearing (LI20) this
will update system "only on the bin level" NO FI docs are posted at this point.. And now when you go
ahead and carry out the IM clearing, this is where the actual stock level changes will be carried out
and you will also get a material document and a FI document posted as well.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick reply Abhijit.

But after LI20, when trying to do LI21, I am getting the message " Clearing only from storage types
with no placement or removal strategy" and could NOT proceed further. How to close the
cycle/process by doing Inventory at IM level.

Please let me know what the problem is...Am I missing any configuration setting..??

Thanks,

KIT

I think I got it..ie., Why I was unable to do LI21 or process at IM level..because the Differences
posting should be done to Storage Type 999 NOT to the storage Type in which WM Inventory is
counted (which could be storage type - 001 or 005 or 100 or 500, etc.)

Choose Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Internal Whse Processes ® Physical Inventory ® In


Warehouse Management ® Clear Differences ® Inventory Management.

Enter the warehouse number and interim storage type for inventory differences.

In the standard system, storage type 999 is set up as the interim storage area for inventory
differences.

Choose Program ® Execute.

The system displays a list of difference items that are planned for clearing to Inventory Management.

Select the bins that you want to clear.

Choose Clear or Save to post the differences from the WMS to Inventory Management (MM-IM).

The system displays a list of all material documents created.

Hi,

Why u are using the complicated process for physical inventory in WM/MM.U can remove the

cyclecounting indicator in material master.U can maintain the frequency in a excel sheet.After
counting

it physically u can alawys adjust thro MB11 using 711&712 movement type thro which the adjustment

can be made according to the counting done.The adjustment will be done in MM& WM at the same

time.This is what we are doing in real time.

Hi,

Please following is the process

1.Create inventory doc. LI01N

2.Enter inventory count LI11n

3.Histroy of inventory count LI13N

4.LI20-Clear difference at WM level

5.LI21-Clear difference at IM level

Once you clear WM stock from LI20 then the IM stock will get cleared through LI21.By this system
will be in synch.

Prashant
