- Movement history can be listed with transaction MB51.
- Goods transfer movement types (311, 343, etc.) will have 2 lines in history report. 1 line for minus from first storage location, 1 line for plus to second storage location.
- If 2 lines are for the same storage location, it means goods are transferred between different stock types of the same storage location (i.e. blocked to unrestricted).
- 561 movement type is not generally used after system goes live. It is for posting initial inventory. It puts stocks into your inventory from nothing.
- 701-702 movement types are not for manual use (MIGO, MB1B, etc.). They are created by system after posting physical inventory difference.
