Negative Stock for Batch managed items

Hi,

My client has this scenario:

They have items managed by batch. The Item's unit is Kgs. In AP Invoice, they enter the Qty as received in the Vendor invoice.

In AR Invoice, they physically weigh the item and enter the qty as per the actual weight.

There are situations when the AP invoice is recorded with qty as 100 Kgs (as per the vendor's invoice), but AR invoice needs to be made for 101 Kgs as the actual weight is more.

With batch managed items, even if I turn off the "Block Negative Inventory" in Document Settings, still the system does not allow to enter qty more than the books qty.

What is the solution? When SAP allows negative inventory for non-batch items, it should also allow negative inventory for batch-managed items.

Thanks.

    Hi Rajesh

    If u allow this your in stock quantity of item will be updated with negative amount and for next transactions it may cause stock differences.

    Thanks

    • Its a genuine requirement in many businesses where items are weighed at the time of sale, and the weight may turn out to be more from what was entered at the time of purchase.

      SAP introduced the negative inventory feature to handle such scenarios, but the settings dont work for batch managed items! I think I have to give it up as a system limitation.

    Hello Rajesh,

    In document settings, please select without / with warning instead of "Block Release / Receipt" option under "Response to release / receipt of inventory outside defined range.

    Please make sure you have appropriate G/L accounts defined and mapped for stock difference loss / gain.

    Regards
