Transfer Posting means to change the title of materials like if we make a posting from quality inspection stock to unrestricted use stock or blocked stock to quality inspection stock or unrestricted use stock to blocked stock etc. The main point of Transfer Posting is to change the Stock Category/type (to change the title of Material like quality inspection to unrestricted use etc) of a material. In Transfer posting an involvement of physical goods movement is not necessary.

Transfer posting can be of two types:

  1. Stock to Stock ( like unrestricted stock to blocked stock)
  2. Material to material
