How to view material Documents in SAP – Jan 2011 SAP Training batch

Problem : SAP Material documents associated with goods movements can be tracked via SAP Document Flow. Material documents generated via other processes like initial entry of goods into SAP, stock input into SAP cannot be viewed via document flow.

Solution : Use Transaction code MB03. The menu path for the same is [ SAP Easy Access -> Logistics -> Material Management -> Physical Inventory -> Environment -> MB03 Material Document ]

Step 1 : Enter SAP tcode MB03 and Enter/ Search the material document number and Fiscal year

Step 2 : SAP will display the material document number which includes

  • The materials associated with the material document
  • Quantities, Plants etc
  • Also the Accounting documents  ( By clicking on the Accounting Documents button in the toolbar) associated with the material movement if any.

    See the material document can be viwed from the tables that are :MPKF for Material document header and MSEG for material document item .

    MB03 is basically for diaply mode of material document but not to view material document .

    When ever we do the posting for the material in the plant using MB1C with movemen type 561 and save it then we generate a document called material document . Once you have created material document you can pull out the stock from the palnt and given warehouse using 562 and thus can cancle material document

    Thirdly the importance of material posting date and year is for the account posting which we do it in ob 52 for the given fiancial year . You cannot chage it once posted as this is the record for the posting

    Yes you have the document that is realted to material document and that is with respect to the type of material for which you are posting if it is K then it is consignment goods ; if it is E then it is for make to order ; if it is p then pipe line material
