reuse HU in SHPCON (WHSCON) IDoc

When we try to reuse the same Handling Unit in SHPCON IDoc, the picking confirmation and goods issue for outbound delivery is failing with the error messages : HUSELECT 008 "Handling unit &1 posted for goods issue exists already" & HUSELECT 005 "There is already a handling unit posted for GR without stock". The unique number assignment for handling units is active in Customizing.

In the two SAP OSS notes# 1839738 (Error HUSELECT005 - reuse HU in SHPCON (WHSCON)) & #2637609 (IDoc cannot update the HU due to HUSELECT008), SAP has stated "The required function is not possible in SAP Standard. The error doesn't occur in VL02N when using an existing HU. A development request might be taken into consideration according to SAP Note 11."

We raised a development request / improvement request # 251903 under customer influential program for this 'missing' functionality as per SAP note 11 and requested SAP to provide a solution to this missing function in standard SAP and allow reusing of Handling Unit in SHPCON IDoc. Not sure how long SAP will take to review our request # 251903 and get back to us (on this Business critical issue) if at all they accept our request.

I would like to know if anyone has developed a solution and get a modification from your own development team to force the system to use the original HU in case of such issue like this one. Can you please share your feedback.

Thank you in advance!
