Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to MIGO transaction.
2. Select a Goods Issue option and movement type.
3. Insert material, quantity, plant, storage location and serial number.
4. Set item as 'OK'.
5. Click on post button.

Error message 'IO 231 - Stock data of serial number &1 not suitable for movement' is raised.

Cause

Serial number stock data don't fit to the stock data of MM Inventory Management.

Resolution

Please follow the instructions of SAP note 612132.

In nutshell, you have to:

1. Create a physical inventory in MI01 transaction;


2. Enter a counted quantity in MI04 transaction;
3. Define each serial number to each qty on stock.
4. Post inventory differences in MI07 transaction.

Examples:

Example 1:

2 EA counted, book quantity 2 EA:


Counted Serial Numbers Serial Numbers on ECC-stock
11
23

Post inventory difference (MI07): there will be no material document created, because the there is no quantity
difference, but serial number 2 will be assigned to the material and serial number 3 will be unassigned from the
material.

Example 2:

3 EA counted, book quantity 2 EA:


Counted Serial Numbers Serial Numbers in ECC-stock
11
24
3-

A material document will be created, because a positive physical inventory difference exits (1 EA). Additionally
serial numbers 2 and 3 have to be assigned to the material, while serial number 4 has to be unassigned from
the material.

In transaction MI04, you have to inform the Serial Number manually as you see above.

Example 3:

If you have 8 EA in stock overview (MMBE) and 7 EA in book quantity to be posted, you should delete the
Serial Number entry which was not found in MI04.

Example 4:

If you did the counting and found another Serial Number (same quantity, but different serial numbers). You
should go to transaction MI07 and then create a Physical Inventory document with qty = 0 and then fix the
Serial Number. Same situation of the above Example 1.
