Inbound Delivery for Item Category Configuration Change QM/WM

Hello All,

I need your valuable suggestion on the best approach to follow on this.

We are implementing QM in our existing SAP system. Currently we have WM implemented and all our inbound deliveries are first putaway then we subsequently do GR

As SAP does not allow IBDs to be created for a WM managed location for QM active material we changed the business process whereby we will first do GR and then putaway against the material document. The existing item category configuration has been changed to make it not relevant for putaway.

The new process is working fine, however we have huge number of inbound deliveries (close to 30 thousand) which are open and have associated shipment documents. As expected the new configuration does not change the putaway relevance in the existing inbound deliveries and we have been unable to make the system re-read the configuration.

We cannot use the existing method for receiving (putaway and GR) for all the existing IBDs because then our QM inspection lots will be messed up and also we want to have one generalised method going forward.

Is there any way of updating the existing IBD status (VBUK/VBUP) to reflect the  new config and make it not relevant for Putaway and WM.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Sandman,

    There is no such report / program as per your requirement which would make the changes for the delivery status in VBUK/VBUP tables. Report like RVDESLTA would check only the document flow (VBFA) but not item category customization. So, you need to create your own Z report to make WBSTK / WBSTA and KOSTK / KOSTK to BLANK for the affected deliveries.

    Otherwise, you can make use of this tCode VL_COMPLETE which would make all the status to C and delivery would be shown COMPLETED. After that, you can create a new delivery which would create items based on new customization.
