Value of the goods movement is negative

Dears,

Info is:

1. All delivery costs are positive in SA. Its a regular SA. NO subcontracting.

2. Stock values are positive in MB5L for that material

3. In MMR MAP is positive

4.

Even though below is error message coming while GR 101:

"Value of the goods movement is negative":

Message no. M7301

Diagnosis

The goods movement value is negative.

Possible causes for this:

o A subcontracting order contains negative components (by-products).

The value of these by-products is sufficiently high that the goods

receipt value value of the material ordered is negative.

o The delivery costs (such as rebate) for a purchase order are

negative:

Goods value:

Delivery costs:

Total value:

System Response

The system cannot post the goods movement.

Procedure

o In the case of a subcontracting order:

Reduce the quantity of the negative components until the goods

receipt value is positive. Then enter a subsequent adjustment for

the remaining by-products using transaction MB04.

o In the case of negative delivery costs:

Stop processing the item and change the delivery costs in the

purchase order.

Please suggest on priority

    Hi

    First Go to OBY6-----> Pl. Check for your Company code you have checked the Negative posting Allowed Check Box

    Then, Goto OMR4---->For your Document Type,( I think it is WE) In Control Data you have checked Negative posting Allowed Check box.

    Reward if useful

    Regards

    Hi,

    Check the byproducts qty in MIGO whether it has exceeded. Check the MAP of the by product material.

    First check the Subcontracting PO, how much qty is entered as negative as By products.

    May be higher than the main material value and qty.

      Hi

      Sorry I couldn't find the right cause of the problem...

      But temporarily you can solve by this way...

      Go to Transaction Code: OMCQ------> Find is there any message type, as Version: 00, App.Area: M7, Mess.No:301...and if it is there Make it as a Warning message or No message...

      If the message is not there.....make new entries and Make it as a Warning message or No message.

      Regards

    Dear Indra,

    It is WE. Goods receipt

    1. There are variances between GR & IR in negative in SA history

    2. They do miro for import delivery costs in INR & IR in EUR.

    3. Is there any concern regarding Exchange rate ?
