Error : 'Apportionment factor is negative' while filling the setup table for shipment data


Hi All,

I am facing an error while trying to fill the setup for Shipment data sources. The data does get extracted into the data source but after almost 400 seconds, it gives an error that says "Apportionment factor is negative" in the job log of the failed process. Message No : VY073.

I referred to notes 2509674 and 337222. It said this error can be because of the negative values of Cumulative Gross Weight and Cumulative Net Weight fields in LIPS table. So I found 11 such records and adjusted these values going by the steps mentioned in the notes. 9 out of 11 records were adjusted but 2 records could be adjusted by the same steps. I'm not sure if the setup table failure is happening because of these 2 records only or not.

What can be done to resolve this issue, please guide.
