Negative stock in storage type 916 and TO is not confirmed

Outbound delivery is completed against the SO, however I see negative stock lying in storage type 916 and one more TO against the same delivery is still open.

If i try to confirm the same TO to nulify the negative stock in storage type 916 then I get an error message "Item VL216 does not exist". This is may be my PGI is completed and invoice is done.

Kindly help on to remove the negative stock from storage type 916 and to cancel the unconfirmed TO.

    Can you explain if you are doing manual transactions or something with function modules or BAPI in this process?

    This error message cannot be correct

    How should the message number itself get into the variable of the item number?

    Are you sure you copied the error message like you get it by SAP?

    Don't do the second step first.  Before clearing the negative stock and deleting the TO you should do a root cause analysis as it is more important to prevent this from happening again.

    And for this analysis you may need the data from the quant. (How to clear negative stock was discussed countless times before - please search)

    How does the deliveries change log look like ?

    • having a hand on the system I could probably find a root cause. But doing this just on a small portion of text information will probably result in a thread with more than a hundred replies and days. 

      SAP Support can access your system.

      You may need to contact them anyway for the deletion on transfer orders. There used to be an instruction in OSS note 1454038 - How to Cancel / Confirm a transfer order when the delivery has been deleted

      But this note is currently not released, maybe it gets reworked. You may ask to get it released for you.

      The negative stock has to be zeroed by creating a manual TO with LT01 and movement 999 by moving the material from your warehouse bins to the interim storage bin with the negative quantity.
