If the difference quantity is below the tolerance limit, system can post PI document automatically after entering the count .To achieve this, it is required to maintain the set up against Reason for physical Inventory.

Here if we select the ‘Autom’ , there is no automatic posting after the counting of physical inventory documents  that are subject to differences  and which were created with the reason


the automatic posting of differences into the ERP system is prevented if this is carried out via the transaction /SCWM/WM_ADJUST (“Automatic Posting of Differences “).

If you do not select this checkbox, automatic posting is allowed.


     c. Define Reason for Differences

    No bad write down – but I think you forgot to mention the field which is the first important one for the automatic posting (even if it is flagged on your screenshot).

    That is the “Simultaneous Posting after Count Entry” in the physical inventory area. If this one is not set, no automatic posting happens.

      Hi Juergen,

    I think that field   ( pstgAftrcount ) will allow us to post manually or auto, this field needs to be activated for both the scenarios, where as  if you activate the Autom field the differnce will be atomatically posted if not activate user needsd to post manually, please correct if I am wrong.

    thanks
