PM Order discontinued part functionality

I would like to know information on discontinued part functionality in following scenario.

I have material 12345 . It is used as component in 50 maintenance orders dated till 2020.

In MRP system created ORDRES reservations for these all 50 orders.

Now , I have requirement to discontinue material 12345 and use 67890 instead of it. So i maintained material master MRP4 view with simple discontinuation data and kept effective out date as 01/07/2017.

Now, In MRP 20 ORDRES reservations are before effective out date 01/07/2017 and rest 30 are after it.

then i ran MRP MD02 for 12345(to be discontinued) but system did not transfer those 30 requirement(ORDRES) to follow up material 67890.

It did not even create purchase requisition for follow-up material 67890 of requirement quantity of those 30 ORDRES which are after effective out date.

Can you please let me know why dependent requirement of discontinued material is not transferred to follow up material in this case.

Appreciate quick response. Thanks in advance.

      Hi Peter,

      I have gone through this document and system is not behaving as mentioned in it.

      According to document it should transfer dependent requirements and reservations to follow up material but here none of those 30 ORDRES reservations transferred to follow up material.
