Hi all,

I´m facing a problem using embedded EWM in S4/HANA baseline. I´m trying to post partial goods receipt against Inbound delivery document. When I post the first HU the system works fine, but when I try to post the second one (of the same line item or another) the system tries to create a new line item at the ERP Inbound delivery and the error "You cannot add this item to the delivery" (message VL059) raises in the inbound queue.

Tanks a lot!

Hi Juergen,

Thanks for your reply. I´m following the SAP Best Practices for S4 - EWM. The process i´m trying to do is:

  • Create Purchase order
  • Create deliveries (both in S4 and in EWM)
  • With the RF program wich is in the following standard RF menu path, I try to post the goods receipt: 03 Inbound processes --> 04 Receiving of handling units --> 04 Rec. HU by ASN.

Here you can create an HU and post the goods receipt of only that HU. The first one works fine but the rest fail in the S4 inbound queue (in EWM the goods receipt is posted). Debbuging the inbound queue in S4 I´ve seen that the system is trying to add the packaging material of the HU to the delivery, but, why the system tries to add the line item for the second HU and not for the first one?

Also, I´ve seen that the customizing points for this are disabled (Define delivery types and Define packaging material types).

Thanks a lot

Hi,

ok, tried that. But worked allright in my system (once I had set up everything...).

Do you use two different packaging materials?

Hi,

No, the same packaging material for every HU.... I think the system is trying to add a line item for each HU already posted. I mean, with the first HU the system doesn´t try to add a line item. When I post the second one, tries to add one line item. Debugging I pass the validation so the second goods receipt was posted. When I tried to post the third HU, it´s trying to add two line items to the delivery. I´m freaking out.

Thanks

Hi,

never had the case that the system tries to create a packaging item line in the backend delivery. And it should not work with EWM anyway (only for outbound deliveries and then the item is created in EWM first).

"Also, I´ve seen that the customizing points for this are disabled (Define delivery types and Define packaging material types)."

Which points exactly do you refer to?

Hi Jurgen,

Yes, it´s a bit weird… The Customizing points that are disabled are:

Logistics Execution --> Shipping --> Deliveries --> Define delivery type --> Delivery type EL --> Gen.pack.matl item

Logistics – general --> Handling unit management --> Basics --> Define packaging material types --> Generate Dlv Items (set to blank)

When I post the goods receipt in EWM the function WS_DELIVERY_UPDATE (inside /SPE/INB_DELIVERY_CONFIRM_DEC) tries to add the packaging material of the first HU posted:

Thanks a lot for your answers.

Hi Alberto,

Has this issue been resolved? As I'm facing a similar issue now with the same process mentioned above.

Could you please let me know the steps if the issue has been resolved?
