Subcontracting with STO process

Hi All,

Material A is already available in subcontract vendor X location,my client asking they need send material directly from sub contractor vendor location to other plant B using inter company STO process. How i need to map this process kindly share your valuable suggestion.

As per my knowledge intercompany STO process will support only material is available in supping plant & Storage location. It will not support Vendor location transfer location stock to reciving plant.

    How is this possible? Did you setup an extra storage location in your plant A which represents your vendor? And did you receive the material into that location?

    If yes, then it is a storage location like any other storage location for your plant, and so it can be used as supplying storage location in a STO which is created from your plant B to be fulfilled from plant A.

    I am sorry, this text is not understandable. Do never translate error messages, post the exact message along with the error message number, which you can find in the detail of the message by double click in case of status message or by clicking the yellow icon with the question mark.

    you also did not explain the sentence "Material A is already available in subcontract vendor X location" , a screenshot would explain it easier. Who is vendor X? is it your original subcontractor? Is it the same as on top of your subcontracting PO?

    If you added this number in the delivery tab and used the SC indicator next to the field then you just moved it into subcontracting stock like you did it with your component by using ME2O, which does not serve your purpose and only makes the situation more complex.

    As said, you have to customize a storage location for your subcontract vendor, and then you do your 101 just normal into that location, no vendor in your delivery tab of the PO.

    And then you create a normal STO

    • I answered this already twice, read my replies again.

      Get specific, what is meant by vendor location? post a screenshot from MMBE.

      Are you talking about a storage location? a storage location is customizing and an entry in table T001L under your plant, the quantity after a receipt is stored in table MARD

      Or is it just stock under a vendor number (number is not a location), which is in table MKOL, and stock is displayed in a vendor line in MMBE transaction.

      The error message VL150 is already discussed about 100 times in the SAP Community, please read the existing discussions, this must not be discussed again.
