Matter of curiosity... Do you have separate movement types defined for
sales returns in the same lines as the 601 variants? Or does the returns
hit the same sales returns account?

Commenting on the use of order reason to derive the schedule line category
- Does it not amount to misuse of the functionality ? It is not easy to
connect order reason with an accounting requirement. Further, it does look
redundant. It may make better business process sense to write the
validation at the line item level. You are anyway planning to use the
exit to derive the Schedule Line Category, so why not use the same exit to
validate the value? That will get rid of the custom table mapping order
reason and Schedule Line Category, relieve the Order Reason field for the
purpose for which it is designed and eliminate unnecessary coding effort.
You may want to map the Schedule Line Category to the item category rather
than order reason. Also, remember that the requirement is at line item
level, but using the order reason would impact all the lines in the
document. Verify the business requirement and its alignment once again.

Hi Typewriter, the truth is that our goal was to have a specific Inventory Posting, to a specific G/L Account.

The Movement Type itself in the three cases, I believe it's a copy of the standard 601; but depending on the Order Reason it had to go to a specific G/L.

There were 3 different G/L's they needed, so, basically what I did was to create a Z Table based on Order Reason that would tell me what Schedule Line Category I was supposed to propose for the selected Order Reason since obviously the same Material could be used under any of the created Order Reason. So, I created 3 Schedule Line Categories, each one pointing to a specific Movement Type, each one pointing to the desired G/L via MM's Account Determination.

The Inventory Posting is :

CR Inventory
DR G/L they needed depending on the Order Reason.

Normally for that DR you post to the COGS Account, in this case, for Free Goods, depending on the Reason for those Free Goods, they post to a specific G/L Account.

Hopefully this is what you were looking for.
