Block material for purchase order (urgent)

Dear All,

We want to block at least 1000 material for purchase order / goods receipt in one plant.

When we block the same in x-plant status in purchasing view in MM02 or flagged for deletion plant level in MM06. It is creating problem in APO Queue. As the some stocks are already available against these material code.

What should we do.

Full points if helped.

Thanks in advance.

Ishu

    Hi

    Block same material only for purchase in in x-plant status in MM02

    Do not mark same for deletion so that u can not carry any PO with it but can process other operations

    Hi Ishu,

    If you only want to prevent PO-creation only for one plant it is enought to set field MARC-MMSTA (mmr, MRP 1).

    (MARA-MSTAE (mmr Basic 1) prevents PO-creation for that material at client level)

    As Vishal said no need for DF (MM06) - of course if you want to mark the goods with DF (and later archive them) you have to get rid of the stock of this material and set the DF in MM06 for your plant (and you can archive it later).

    • Dear Ishu,

      If you want to block a certain material only in one plant - as you wrote -, you shouldn't use 'X-plant material status'. Please go on Purchasing view or MRP view and use the field I wrote about ('Plant material status').

      Sorrowfully I do not know SAP APO but you can post this thread on SCM APO forum as well - you have higher chance to get an answer there I think.
