PO - Sum of quantities .. larger than total quantity

Does anybody know what this error means: <b>Sum of quantities >...< larger than total quantity</b>

We get this error when we use the function BAPI_PO_CHANGE (updating a purchase order).

Kind regards,

Lieselot

    You have a total qty field. This value is less that the qty values of the items or something like that.

    Hi,

    In the Header you need to give the total quantity and in the Line itesm you need to pass the line item quantity, so the total of this line item quantities should be equal to the Header quantity, but in your case these 2 are not matching

    Is there a long text with the error?

    What is the message number and ID?

    Hi, as per experience using SRM 4.0 EBP classic scenario, the said error happens when the cost distribution was splitted to 99 or more cost centers. As per investigation before, this is a SAP standard limitation when creating a PR or PO. Solution to this is to reduce the # of cost distribution lines/items.

    I have actually been dealing with this same error in our system. In my case this error triggers when I attempt to change a PO via a PO-CV that has an existing item that does not have an ACC_NO = 0001.

    In this example you have provided does the PO have an existing line that does not have an ACC_NO =0001?
