Material stuck in quality inspection stock

Hi everyone.

I have QM module defined so that no inspection posts into quality inspection stock. However, during configuration, for the one plant InspTypeForInspStock was the original 0800 (which posts to quality inspection) instead of a newly created Z0800, which doesnt post to quality inspection. Inspection type 0800 is not set to this material (nor to any other).

During a procedure in production, reversal of scrap, movement type 552 triggered moving the quantity for this material into quality inspection stock. No inspection lot was created. How can I move this from quality inspection stock to unrestricted stock, where it should be?

What I have tried is following:

- running QA08, mass processing, and adding Inspection Type 0800 to the material which was incorrectly posted; the system recognizes the material, but does not create any inspection lot (I have createdmaintained inspection plan for this material for both origins 9 and 5)

- transaction MB1B with movement type 321 gives the error that this movement should be done via QA11

- QA11 nor QA32 do not display any inspection lot for the stated material (without any other filter, dates wide open)

- MB52 shows the quantity on the quality inspection stock

- In table MCHB there is one item with the stated quantity for the material and its shown that it is in the inspection stock

What should I do to move this material from the quality inspection to the unrestricted stock?

Thanks in advance!

    At the time of material movement was there any inspection type activated in material master? You can check in MM03 with display changes in material master to check if someone has deactivated it after the movement.

    As I read further, you are getting error while doing 321 through MB1B. That drives me to conclusion that an inspection lot must be open in system. Could you please check in QA32 (by choosing option select all inspection lots with wide date range) if there is any lot with status SPRQ or SPST? If you you can post the stock against it.

    If you still do not find any such inspection lot in system, I would go with Arijit to implement 48815. Let us know if this resolves your issue.

    • Hi Anand and Arijit.

      Solving this issue turned into a teamwork. After exhausting all QM possibilites, we went to recheck all configuration.

      The reason for the material to stuck in quality stock was missconfiguration of movement type 552. What we did then was:

      - configuring the movement type 552 correctly

      - moved the quantity to scrap again

      - removed all QM checks for that material

      - manualy moved from scrap to quality inspection

      - manualy moved from quality to unrestricted stock

      - reinstated the QM checks

      Thank you for your help!

    Hi Marko,

    Try SAP Note 48815 and confirm if this is posting your stock form Quality to Unrestricted stock.
