Goods Receipt without Reference in SAP

Let’s us understand this topic by taking an instance, suppose a business implemented SAP software which is going to be live then the existing stocks of materials should be recorded in the new SAP software as a initial stock balances. Then Goods receipt against any Purchase order/ Production order comes to the picture.

The initial entry of stock balances can take place by posting to three stock types :

  • Unrestricted-use stock (without PO: movement type 501; without production order: movement type 521)

  • Stock in quality inspection (without PO: movement type 503; without production order: movement type 523)

  • Blocked stock (without PO: movement type 505; without production order: movement type 525)

STEP 1 : Go to SAP Easy Access screen and enter T-code – MIGO


STEP 2 : Choose Goods Receipt, Other as the reference and enter 501 as movement type (Unrestricted-use stock without Purchase Order)
