E1: 42/43: Transfer Order (ST/OT) (Doc ID 2094796.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 20, 2021

A Transfer Order is used to transfer inventory from one branch to another. The Transfer Order (P4210) program creates both a Sales Order for the shipping branch and a Purchase Order for the receiving branch.

A Transfer Order is an internal sales order used to transfer inventory from one warehouse (branch) to another. The Transfer Order (P4210) program creates both a sales order in the "From Branch" (shipping branch) and a purchase order in the "To Branch" (receiving branch). The default document types created are ST (sales order) and OT (purchase order), and are often referred to as an ST/OT order. When a sales transfer order (ST) order is created, the purchase transfer order (OT) is also created, regardless of whether the "Generate Purchase Order" flag is activated or not in the line type constants (P40205). Further, field SDS011 (Transfer/Direct Ship/Intercompany) in the Sales Order Detail file (F4211) is marked with a '1', indicating a transfer order.

Transfer Orders have unique setup considerations compared with regular customer sales orders which will be discussed in detail in this document.

Transfer Orders (ST/OT) are designed to be used to move quantities from one Branch/Plant to another. Non-stock items, direct ship items and other items that do not have quantities in the Item Balance (F41021) table are not appropriate for transfer orders and not supported. Also, kits containing a parent item with K stocking type and a bill of material with component items are not supported for Transfer Orders. The individual component items can be used for transfer orders provided the line types meet the line type requirements for Transfer Orders.

EnterpriseOne does not support EDI creation or updating of transfer orders using the 850 Inbound Order Creation (R47011) or 860 Inbound Order Change (R47131) programs. There is no "From Branch/Plant" and "To Branch/Plant" field to enter in the EDI 850 Header Table (F47011) or EDI 860 Header Table (F47131). The ST/OT functionality is internal and is intended for transfers within an organization's branches, whereas the EDI system is for use between an organization and its external customers.
