EDI SHPCON - Prevent delivery quantity being updated/changed

I am trying to process an inbound shipping confirmation.

The delvivery should be Picked and has the qualifier E1EDL18-PIC.

The batch in the SHPCON should be changed in the delivery, the Segment E1EDL19 is in the position, but without a qualifier.

However, when the delivery quantity in the SHPCON differs from the quantity in the delivery, the inbound IDOC should go onto error 51 - with message VL217 - Material is not the same for confirmation and delivery

At the moment the quantity in the delivery is being changed to the quantity in the SHPCON.

How is it possible, to create this error?

    Hi Phil,

    Sorry to ask you but i am bit confused with the query.

    1) Are you getting the error VL217 when processing the SHPCON idoc or

    2) you want to build the functionality that during processing of IDoc when the incoming IDoc quantity is not equal to Delivery quantity then system should give you the error message VL217

    • Hi Phil,

      That is great....just wanted to let u know that we had the similar situation and we were using the WHSCON with batch split to do the PGR. We found that when incoming idoc quantity was equal to delivery quanity system was able to post the document but unable to change the goods status to C. We shared our analysis with SAP and they released a High priority OSS note on 26-Nov-2013 to resolve this. I have posted the business scenario and other detail under heading "

      IDoc message type WHSCON with batch split"

      This is just for your information
