GR w.r.t. STO error for Stock in Transit


Hallo Experts

We have issue with GR w.r.t. STO.
Material has Base Unit as EA and alternative unit as BOX. Conversion is 1 BOX = 12 EA.
In receiving plant of STO, "On-Order Stock" and "Stock in Transit" was ZERO (0).
Now STO created for 1 BOX. "On-Order Stock" at receiving plant becomes 1 Box (12 EA).
With reference to STO, Outbound delivery and PGI created for 1 BOX. At receiving plant, "Stock in Transit" becomes 1 Box (12 EA).
GR posted w.r.t. delivery for 1 EA. Now at receiving plant in MMBE, "On-Order Stock" changed from zero to 11.004 EA (0.917 BOX) and "Stock in Transit" becomes 11 EA (0.917 BOX).

While posting next GR w.r.t. delivery for remaining quantity, it is giving error message as "PL Stock in transit exceeded by 0.004 EA".

I guess, system is trying to post "On-Order Stock" 11.004 EA and validating it with "Stock in Transit" 11 EA. This 0.004 EA may be the difference between "On-Order Stock" 11.004 EA and "Stock in Transit" 11 EA.

I searched for issue and found SAP Note 896701. Please tell me whether issue can be resolved by applying this Note.
