MD05 - Plant doesn't exist

Hello guys!

I'm facing an error, which is turning to be complex to be solved.

Problem:

User tries to access MRP list through MD05, for material X and plant 1234. System returns error saying 'Plant '' does not exist - Message No. 61272'.

Observations and what we have checked:

  1. This error applies only for the combination mentioned above.
  2. We searched for SNotes but didn't find anything suitable.
  3. It is an awkward error, because this plant exists and material is well maintained in this plant.
  4. It is possible to access MD04, for material X and plant 1234. (different tcode)
  5. It is possible to access MD05, for material X and plant 9876. (different plant)
  6. It is possible to access MD05, for material Y and plant 1234. (different material)
  7. We jumped this error message, via debug, and system showed another error, regarding dates (something related to calendar).
  8. That said, we checked:
  9. Factory calendar ZZ is well maintained for plant 1234.
  10. In SCAL, facotry calendar ZZ's range is set from 2010 until 2030.
  11. In SCAL, holiday calendar ZZ's range is set from 2010 until 2030.
  12. We jumped this new error message and system exhibited another error, regarding unit of measure. After that, we stopped, since it's obvious system is getting lost somewhere and doesn't make sense to further "jump" the errors messages.
  13. User ran MRP for this material and no errors were shown, and MD05 is still inaccessible.

Questions:

Did anyone face something similar or has an idea what to look for?

Note, not necessarily the error must have been in MD05, probably a solution for this error in other transaction, might be the same solution for this case.

Thank you in advance.

Appreciate your replies.

Estevão Tonioli.

    Hello Caetano. We found what's happening.

    Somehow we didn't manage before to verify there was a development in the middle of the execution.

    We opened an incident to SAP and they replied to us with this development, saying it had a strange behaviour "reprocessing MD05" while on MD05 execution. Something like "executing MD05 inside of MD05".

    The problem is that on the very end, there were some variables cleaned and WERKS was one of them, the reason system found nothing on T001W.

    We'll be threating it internally, making system use another memory for this "inside execution".

    Thanks, Estevão Tonioli.

    Hello

    Can you please point the exact piece of code where the error message is triggered? Please also point the call stack.

    Regards,
    Caetano

      Hello!

      Yes, MRP views are all maintained in material master. Including storage.

      Regards,

      Estevão.

    Hi,

    This seems to be some missing entry in various Plant/site related tables.That may be root cause for some many dependent errors from standard SAP code validations.

    Is this plant configured manually step wise? If possible can you delete the same and then use Copy function to create this plant from an already working plant/Site?

    Regards,

    Avik

      Hello Avik!

      Agreed: "This seems to be some missing entry in various Plant/site related tables.That may be root cause for some many dependent errors from standard SAP code validations."

      Unfortunatelly, it's not possible for us to recreate this plant, it's the main plant of the company and the impacts it may cause are extense.

      Thanks,

      Estevão.
