GR not generate Inbound under Handling Unit-managed SLoc


I have a question with regards to HU management. May I know if, under standard SAP, that an Inbound delivery will be created automatically when posting a GRN against a purchasing order into a HUM-managed storage location?

If this is true, I wonder what I miss out on my system because there is no inbound delivery generated. See below my system posting and configuration.

A) System configuration:

B) Transaction.

Purchasing Order:

When trying to perform GRN against this PO item 0020, the following error appears.

Why system does not allow me to post GRN to generate inbound delivery?

Next, I tried another way, by removing the confirmation control key in the PO. However, system complained about missing confirmation control key. However, before the error message appear, I can see the message bar at the bottom showing “delivery being prepared”.

Any idea what is missing?

    If you have a confirmation control key in your PO which requires an inbound delivery, then you need to have this inbound delivery before you can perform a GR.

    This is usually send by EDI from your vendor to you and you post the receipt from the IBD.

    • Hello Daniel,

      Hope you are doing good. Were you able to find a solution for the confirmation control key error in MIGO while performing the goods receipt against outbound delivery. I'm also in the same situation where we are having an STO------>out bound delivery PGI'ed---------> now trying to do the goods receipt against outbound delviery into a Handling unit managed sloc and at this point get the error that the PO does not contain the confirmation control key.

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance for your help.
