Plant determination in packing at shipment level

Hi Experts,

For a business reason, it is required to perform the packing at shipment level with SSCC. I have maintained the number ranges, number range object for SSCC, SSCC ILN codes for plant/storage location combination and respective packaging material type/material group for packaging material configurations. I have also extend the respective packaging material master to sales.General/plant data.

I'm using the plant determination attribute as 'A - Plant proposed from packaging material' in packaging material type. When I try to pack at shipment level I noticed that the system could not able to find the respective plant, which result missing ILN code error. I tried to pack at delivery level with same configurations, and I could successfully pack at delivery level.

Could you please suggest what is stopping the plant determination? Appreciate your suggestions.

Please note, we are not using SAP WM, but we are using 3PL warehouse.

      Hi Jurgen,

      Thanks for your support. I understand that standard SAP does not support to determine plant at shipment level, as there could be multiple plants/storage locations in each delivery. In order to meet the businss requirement, we decided to maintain an ILN code with a blank data in plant/storage location combination along with an external number range. However we are moving ahead to develop custom logic in FM LE_SSCC_GENERATE, so that we can identify the right ILN per plant (will be maintained in a Z* table), external number range.
