How to clear negative stock in interim storage type in EWM

Hi Gurus

I would like to ask for help.

I have an inbound delivery in EWM where i posted goods receipt. I have set up my system to do inspection at goods receipt. However, in processing my delivery, i started the putaway first and confirmed it, which then posted the goods receipt. This somehow resulted to negative stock in interim storage type 9015.

so scenario looked like..

the system created the putaway, removed stock from 9015 GR zone and transferred it to destination bin, created negative stock in GR zone as GR has not yet been posted, after the putaway confirmation, GR was posted into GR zone, but did not delete the negative stock.

so I have both positive and negative stock in 9015 GR zone, and i have my available stock in the final destination.

the positive and negative stock are appearing as physical stocks.

can you please help me how to clear these negative and positive stocks?

Thank you.

Hello David,

You can use Check Monitor (/scwm/chm_log) to confirm if the physical stocks for this bin are really inconsistents using the check "Reserved Quantities" under Stock and Bin node.

But only SAP is allowed to correct this kind of inconsistencies, because it requrires some kind of further analysis.

Hi Natalia

Thanks a lot for responding.

I actually tried that transaction already and it's not finding any inconsistencies. Both in the interim location and the real destination bin, everything looks fine when I run the transaction.

Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.



Hi David,

I read the issue again, and I figured it out that since there is two lines (one positive and one negative) for this stock, the Check Monitor will not find any inconsistency because this stock will be considered as "zero" (because the sum of both lines is zero),

The only way I see to get rid of this stock is deleting it directly in physical stock tables (/lime/nquan and /scwm/quan), but I strongly recommended that you send this to SAP, to have a deeper analysis.




Hi Natalia

Thank you. I will raise this to SAP so they can clear out the standard tables.

Thanks for responding. :)
