  1. Hi Pratib,
    do you mean aggregation on MIRO screen ?
    If so, aggregation layouts will be helpful if you are processing a list of invoices with a lot of line items. You can aggregate values per Material, Plant, Purchase Order and you can see the others in MIRO screen under PO Reference tab in the list of Layouts.
    SAP Help may also be useful

  2. Do the movement types in MIGO determine whether or not an item stored in the plant warehouse and is issued to an order is taxable or not.

    I’m trying to determine where this can be seen when the sales & use tax reports are done at the end of each month rather than manually looking through the list to detemine each and every line item issued.

  3. How or where can i get a report ( querie ) or transaction for what it has been received on a daily,weekly, monthly basis ?


    thanks all

  4. Blas : you should try transaction MB51, precise the date you want to analyse as well as the division & the mouvement type 101
