SAP Error Message L4203 - Storage Unit is already in Storage Bin


Hello All SAP WM Gurus,

This is regarding a strange error that we are getting while doing the Manual Physical Inventory activity in our Warehouse. I am doing a Manual Phy. Inv. for material BSGA7DC in the storage bin B0308C. My storage type is TEA and we have SU management activated in all of our storage types.

Right now, in this storage bin, the above material is stored in the SU 300701770000902866.

I create the Manual Inventory Record in transaction LI01N.

Then I go to the transaction LI11N to enter the inventory count. However, in this transaction, when I enter the Inventory count along with the UoM, I get an error message saying that Storage unit is already in storage bin TEA B0308C.

Normally, we get this error if there are any open inbound/outbound deliveries or unconfirmed TOs created for the material and they are not processed yet. But in my case, there are absolutely no open inbound/outbound deliveries or unconfirmed TOs exist for the material BSGA7DC.

I tried to replicate this issue in our Quality system, but I noticed that, I am getting this error only when there are any open deliveries or unconfirmed TOs maintained in the system. If there are any such documents, the system immediately gives me a warning message saying that the deliveries/TOs are not processed yet and hance the difference cannot be posted. I get this warning message when I initially manitain the inventory record in the Manual inventory transaction LI01N, i.e. in the first place.

But in the production system, I am not getting any such warning messages in LI01N, i.e. during the creation of manual inventory record.

But while entering the count in LI11N, I am getting the error message Storage unit is already in storage bin TEA B0308C. Because of this, we are unable to do the physical inventory activity in the storage type TEA and storage bin B0308C.

If any of you have ever encountered such an issue in WM, could you please let me know how you have cleared it? What data changes we should make in order to post the manual physical inventory records successfully?

Please do let me know.

Thanks and Regards,
