Confirmation control for return

Hi Experts,

In our current setup, we are using inbound delivery for PO. The confirmation control is set to 0004 in the PIR. However, there is problem with the return PO for vendor consignment stock. In normal return PO, the confirmation control is empty which should be correct as there should not have any IBD. However, the confirmation control key is still 0004 for vendor consignment return PO. As a result, the delivery of the vendor consignment return cannot be post as there is an outstanding inbound confirmation. Could anyone suggest for any configuration or transaction data that I should check for this problem? Thanks!

    Instead go for creating return consignment purchase order, please use transaction MBRL for consignment returns. You have to enter the material document, choose create delivery, enter the return quantity, reason for movement and then post.

    Hi Alex

    Check if confirmation control has been maintained in consignment info record and remove the same if so

    Dear All,

    In addition to Alex's points, I would like to mention a few other concerns in this case.

    I feel the Inbound delivery under confirmation control field is picked automatically from vendor master data record and PIR maintained for consignment.

    But no inbound delivery is created either automatically or manually. and I cannot change the confirmation control as it is non-editable field. This field can be changed may be if we change settings related to Field selection control. But I want to know other solutions to this.

    There are many such POs created by users incorrectly and all of them are open with these Idoc failure issues.

    And another concern here is we do not understand how the confirmation control is not picked as Inbound delivery in quality system though the master data is maintained the same way in both the systems.

    Is there any way to reverse or correct the POs or deliveries.

    Please suggest.
