    For batches with zero stock which are assigned to the material archive these in transaction SARA and reorganize the tables MCH1, MCHA and MCHB.

    If you have defined the batch level in the transaction OMCE to 'unique at material level' it is not possible to turn off the batch management flag in one plant. You can can only turn it off for all plants at the same time.

    Please refer OSS notes

    When archiving batches and special stocks, goods movements (for example) should not be performed at the same time. Since these also lock the batches (for the tables MCH1 or MCHA, depending on the batch management level)

    Best Regards,

    Can you show a screen of your selection variant, you might made the wrong settings in the selection screen, which is pretty easy as this selection screen is very complex for the various archiving task that can be performed for special stock.
