OMCQ M7 - 362 Message wrongly interpreted

Hi,

We have a reservation for material MATX , Qty : 1 Nos.

Now in MIGO I issue wrt reservation. Here I change qty to 3 Nos.

On pressing CHECK button, System shows message M7-362 as under:

"RE Reserved quant. exceeded by 2 NOS : MATX Plant Sloc"

I want message as "Issued Qty exceeded by 2 NOS" but system prompts with message as "Reserved Qty exceeded by 2 NOS".

The message here looks confusing. Why is it so ? Am I not getting the point here ?

Please Reply.

    you can't even issue when you have an error message.

    For me the message looks well defined

    RE stands for reservation

    and "Reserved quant. exceeded by" is also quite logical since you reserved 1 and try to issue 3, hence the reserved quantity is exceeded.

    The Issued quantity is not exceeded, the issued quantity exceeds the reserved quantity.

    There is no unlimited space to communicate an error to a user (most user do not even know that a long text exists), so SAP has to make a message short so that it can be displayed in a message box or as status message with all needed information.

    Messages are maintained in SE91 (language specific), where & indicates a variable, the program does its job and in an error case it determines the message number and replaces the & with a meaningful value

    Hi Jurgen,

    Thanks for clarifying. I expected "the issued quantity exceeds the reserved quantity." as message. It was wrong understanding at my side. Instead of comparing two quantities, it only compares one qty - Reservation Qty. That is the reason this message is shown in this way.

    Regards,
