Problem for goods issue


I am using 'BAPI_Goodsmvt_Create' for issuing the components 261 against reservation.

The BAPI is working fine but the problem is it allow posting more then required quantity. I don't want to allow the posting (withdrawal) more then required quantity.

Please suggest, how to achieve it.

The idea to incorporate additional logic with RESB table (to compare required quantity and withdrawal quantity and block the execution for BAPI) fail because RESB store the req qty/withdrawl qty in base unit of measure (For ex M) and we give input to BAPI with MM as its convenient for client.

To incorporate additional logic for conversion of unit of measures will be problematic because we have lot of such unit of measures, I have only given example of M/MM.

Request you to suggest suitable option to overcome situation.

    • Hello Abhay,

      It is SAP standard behavior to allow issue of more quantity that planned quantity the difference is calculated as variance. Financial controllers review the variances and can question production department if the difference is very high.

      If you want to restrict then you have to write your own custom logic as per my opinion. Regarding conversion, I believe there should be a conversion FM available for conversion from one unit to another so it should not be very complicated programming.

      Please see below threads,
