SAP Recommended Process: Rejection/Return to Vendor


Material is returned to the vendor against a return delivery document using movement type 122. The return is entered at the time of quality inspection. The goods receipt material document is used as reference while entering the return delivery. If the vendor sends you a substitute delivery after the return delivery e.g. after sorting of material, you can enter the new goods receipt as a subsequent delivery. In a subsequent delivery, you refer to the material document of the original goods receipt or to the material document of the return delivery.

The return delivery slip is printed out and sent to the vendor with the goods.

Referencing the original document has the following advantages:


·         Data input is reduced.
·         The returned quantity is checked so that it does not exceed the delivered quantity
·         The quantity received is reduced.

However, if a material is to be returned after quality check at goods receipt as well as invoice receipt, the material needs to be returned to the vendor. In this case, a return purchase order will be created. The goods will be returned to the vendor using movement type 161. A return delivery document will be created. To show goods return, a credit memo will be created against the return order and the return delivery document.

In SAP both options are available, it will be decided in realization phase which option is best for online partial rejection
