Production order confirmation leads to negative stock

Hi All,

We are facing an issue as we have not configured our system for -ve stock ( at plant level , at storage location level and not even in material master) but one of our material is having -ve stock.

Scenario is like - we have created a BOM - then production order and then confirmation through T-code CO11N (having auto Mvt. Type 261).

Initial stock of the material say - 10 Ton , confirmation is done for 15 Tons now stock value/quantity is -ve by 5 tons.

Please help.

    Firstly you would need to ask yourself, if you only have 10t of a material, how is it possible to then consume 15t...?

    It sounds like there is either a significant lag in your inwards goods system for raw materials or your BOMs are inaccurate.

    • Hi Darrell,

      First, no -ve stock is configured in our SAP system.

      Secondly, we have already -ve stock in Plant (- 10 Ton), after that confirmation is done for 15 Tons (How it is possible, if no -ve Stock is configured)...

      Is there any scenario, in which SAP don't check the -ve stock configuration.

    Hi Anil,

    If you activate -ve stock at the plant level than it will be applicable to all the materials in the plant.

    • Hi Solomon,

      As per snote Solution is "The negative stock can be eliminated only by reversing a goods issue or by posting a different goods issue"....for this, we have to reverse, all the document's, starting from system showing -ve stock.

      Please have a look on below screen...

      Please see Yellow colour mark entries....for negative stock. And last entry, showing Stock without Value....

      Now suggest.

    Hi Anil,

    So what is the problem, you can easily reverse the document by transaction MIGO, in that select cancel / material document and select only line item which you want to reverse.

    Also for material with 0 price. Whenever you create a material than the price need to be maitain till that time, material status should be block for procurement.

    Now you need to reverse that document also but without maintaining the price. If you maintain price and than reverse than the differenece of the amount will goto the price different account.

    Please try and revert.

    Regards,

    Solomon

    • Hi Solomon,

      Problem is that why -ve stock was accepted by SAP system, when all the required configuration is correct.

      Also, whenever we create any material, then we have to maintain material price for it as required entry.

      Now, please suggest which line items we have to reverse as per screenshot OR reverse all the goods movements from GR/GI no. 4901837438 (mvt. 261) on dtd. 17.02.2017.

    When you have not maintained the -ve stock in config and still you find that in system. For that situation the note is there, If you still find the same problem than you raise the issue to SAP.

    In my opinion you can reverse the line item which has negetive qty., but if you do not want to take that chance than you reverse the whole document. but it is your decision to do it.

    Again for the reversal of the document also you can ask SAP

    rgds,

    Solomon

    • I have got sap note 2524362 - Slog_ Exclusive Lock with negative stock problem.

      It seems like suitable for my problem, but my system configration is not "exclusive lock" but "later exclusive lock".

      Whatever, I will have a try......
