Statistical goods receipt for purchase order item not posted

Dear experts,

I am getting this error at the time of posting inbound delivery with confirmation LA in a third party PO. This is a third party PO where ASN idoc is inbound via an external system. Manually posting inbound delivery via VL31N is successful.

Message I am receiving is : Statistical goods receipt for purchase order item not posted Message no. ME685

Any suggestions on this ?

    Digged more into the process. Seems system is trying to post statistical GR when ASN idoc of type DESADV is received. PO is third party PO with sales order as account assignment. Idoc is failing with message - Statistical goods receipt for purchase order item not posted ME 685.

    Message long text:

    Statistical goods receipt for purchase order item 45XXXX 00010 not posted Message no. ME685 Diagnosis The system tried to create a shipping notification sent via EDI, with message type DESADV, and at the same time tried to post a goods receipt with the transmitted quantity. System Response The statistical goods receipt for third-party purchase orders 4514009892 item 00010 with the goods receipt quantity 2.000 and the unit of measure CS could not be posted. Procedure Check to see if you can post the goods receipt with reference to the PO item for the material: Post Goods Receipt. Contact your system administrator if the problem is not solved by this action. The latter can check the settings in Customizing for Sales and Distribution under Definition of Sales and Distribution . It is possible that, for example, the movement type ('101') is missing: Define, copy, delete, check sales organization.

    My questions:

    1. Is there any place where we maintain that GR will be statistical for third party PO.

    2. Item category in sales order is TAS. When I change it to TANN, then ASN is posted without any issues and not GR is posted too. Any clue why ?
