count on interim


May I know if there is a standard SAP transaction in WM to allow performs physical inventory count on interim storage bin?

We need system to have such functionality as one of our interim bin in our warehouse storing many temporary stock quantities which need to audit it.

I tried to used LI01N, however, I hits the following error when trying to enter count of the interim storage bin (a PO number).

Quant 0000000065 for storage bin 4500000290 cannot be counted
Message no. L4045


There are three possible reasons why this error might occur:

  1. 1. Before quants can be counted, all transfer orders must be completely
    processed for the corresponding bin.
  2. 2. Negative stock cannot be counted.
  3. 3. No open WM or HU inventory can exist for this quant.

    System never stop you to do you can define the inventory method under LE---WM ---Activities -- Physical inventory ----Define inventory type

    you can see that the possible reason says that either the TO is open or stock is negative or open HU inventory exist for the quant

    however operationally performing physical count in interim bin is not possible as this area exist virtually in system and no physical marking available inside the warehouse so if the user has to count it is very difficult to identify which stock belong to which dynamic bin

    • counting negative stock is physically not possible. Negative positions have to be cleared before a physical inventory is conducted. This is the problem with negative stocks, they always make it into foreground at the worst timing.

      Work on a process that allows you finally to turn off the negative stock. Negative stock indicates are wrong business process, and evidence is that it is still there and nobody seems to care about it.
