Stock with Special Stock indicator E, not allowing to perform 261 Movement Type

Hi Team,

Please provide your expert opinion.

Unintentionally, a component was set with value Blank in Individual/Coll. field in MRP 4 view. The component is WM managed, when order was released, Transfer Request was generated & the part list was updated with Account Assignment M for that component. It was showing reference of sales order created for the header material.

After TR was converted to TO, TO was also processed. Now the stock is lying in WM under Special Indicator E, due to which we are not able to perform 261 movement for this component, it throws error

Sales order stock XXXXXX 000010 does not exist

This Sales order is already processed & completed.

We are in deadlock, since process order cannot be closed.

Please suggest how to consume this component against the order or bring back the stock to normal

    WM is just a sub to IM.

    a goods issue with 261 checks at IM level when the error

    Sales order stock XXXXXX 000010 does not exist

    is issued.
    if you have nothing for this sales order in IM, then I wonder how you could have something in WM, this can only mean that you missed to process transfer requests, TOs or PCNs in WM or you created somehow a real inconsistency.

    To analyze this further you would need to give much more information. e.g. what you actually picked for the goods issue. if you eventually did some direct table changes. Screen shots from LS24 and LS26 including the totals could be helpful.

    In any case, if you already issued the stock for the sales order, then you cannot consume it a second time with 261, you need to reverse the goods issue to create this sales order stock again.

    • Your order for which you want do a 261 movement has information that this material is in sales order xxxxxxx item 000010

      now it is essential to know in the very detail what was done in sequence.

      As you usually need to clear the situation in the reverse sequence.

      Not just movements, as well master data changes.

      If we understand the full situation, then it might even be possible to do a short cut.

      But it is currently not really known if you have an inconsistency between IM and WM, or just missed some postings in WM (which has not really something to do with the error you have)

      We do not know how the to be situation should be
      And for the as-is we have only knowledge about the error message, but no details to previous movements which lead to this situation.

      And we have no info about the current book stocks to make a clear suggestion.

      Some situation require detailed analysis, a proposal made just out of the blue can cause an even more difficult situation and a longer way to clean it up.
