Disable Component Quantity Change in Maintenance Order After Withdrawal

Hi,

I'm really in a trouble, and I need your help. When we implemented the SAP at the beginning, the implementation company did some configuration that once a component is selected in maintenance order, then issued from the storage location, then the requirement quantity field of the component in the maintenance order can't be changed (grayed out), and it will display only, but you can still add more components if we require.

Recently, our company brought another SAP partner for upgrading the SAP system, and our maintenance department reported that the component quantity field is open and the quantity can be changed, even after the quantity has been withdrawn. see the following screenshot:

I know, some people will say it is standard SAP function, but this will cause disturbance, but we need to put some control on that. Before, it wouldn't allow the user to change the requirement quantity after it has been withdrawn. Also, this configuration was applied for all clients of our SAP system (200,300,400). Now, it is missing from all our clients.

Can you please provide the steps for re-configuring this.

Thanks

    Hi Julphar,

    Are you sure this was'nt set up as an enhancement in your system before the upgrade and for whatever reason the enhancement isnt working as expected.

    I doubt if there is a standard/configuration available which will meet this requirement.

    Hello Julphar,

    I am not sure but this answer could helpful to you

    1) Once you do TECO for your work order , Requirement quantity became grey out and user can not changed.

    2) Other wise you can do configuration setting in

    SPRO--> PM & CS --> Maintenance and service processing -->Maintenance and service order --> Define field selection for components (PM & CS) then go to define field selection for components (PM & CS)

    Refer attached both screenshot .

    Regards,

    Please do not use words like "urgent" in your posts - it tends to put people off answering. Its also against the forum rules.

    Search the IMG (SPRO for: Define Field Selection for Components (PM and CS)

    Then make RESBD-MENGE display-only.

    You might want to use the Influencing options to limit these settings to order type or item category.

    Thank you for your support. Actually, I tried this before, and it made the requirement qty field for the component as display only, but the field will be editable in the components list in the maintenance order. Even, if I make the requirement qty field as display only in both component list, and component general details screen from this PM configuration, it will not help as the user will not be able to enter the requirement qty. This configuration will make the requirement qty field as display whether the component has been withdrawn or not

    My issue need to apply logic that in case the component has been withdrawn (meaning withdrawn qty is not 0) then it should show the field as display only in both the component table and general details screen for that specific component where the use can't change the requirement qty, but he will still be able to change requirement qty for another other component in the order that still has not been withdrawn.

    Thanks

    If it wasnt done by configuration, then it must have been a development.

    Talk with your ABAP Team who might be able to help.
