Unconfirmed Sales Orders in APO Product View

Dear Seniors,

I have an Unconfirmed Sales Order in SAP ERP. I run the availability check and press the "Continue without confirming" check.

After this I am expecting this order to be available in the APO Product View, so I can generate a planned order for it.

In my case the Sales Order does not appear in APO Product View unless it is confirmed.

The Planning Strategy used is 40.

Please let me know what kind of setting I am missing to be able to plan the unconfirmed planned order in APO.

Many thanks for your input,

    ist "date and qty fixed" indicator set when you do continue without confirming?

      Alex,

      This is the cause of your symptoms.

      When this checkbox is selected, ONLY confirmed quantities are passed to planning.  In turn, these same quantities are therefore not transmitted to //RRP3 in APO, since they are not relevant for planning.

      Deselect this checkbox for a single unconfirmed order, and then save.  The 'requested' date and quantity are then passed to planning in ECC; and therefore passed to APO.

      OVZJ determines the default behavior.  If you want all future orders to have this checkbox deselected, you deselect in OVZJ.  Existing orders must be manually changed.

      Best Regards,

    Alex,

    When you save the unconfirmed order, is there an entry created for the unconfirmed order/item/schedule in ECC table VBBE?

    Just a thought... what planning procedure are you using? By planning procedure I mean the mat1 ppds planning procedure.

    There are options which you can check in SPRO > PPDS > maintain planning procedures.

    Here you can set whether you are seeing the confirmed date and quantity versus the desired date and quantity (the confirmed column). Maybe you have that set to desired and your sales order is not appearing at a date at which you would expect it versus the confirmation in ECC.

    • Many thanks for your input Chris.

      The Planning Procedure used is 4. This standard procedure, does not have the confirmed check meaning that the desired quantity is relevant for pegging.
