Process Order - Order requires approval

My environment is S4HANA ON PREMISE 1610. I'm testing process order for which approval is required. When I try to tick 'Approval Required' checkbox in COR4, error message 10048 is popping out.


A master recipe is required for master recipe selection

Message no. 10048


The current master recipe selection is not allowed for "Approval required".


Choose one of the following options for master recipe selection:

  • Master recipe mandatory (automatic selection)
  • Master recipe mandatory (manual selection)


At debugging I find the program is checking v_t399x_40-arbpa and it has to be 6 or 7 to continue. Then I look into table T399X and see that ARBPA has been renamed to '

-INVALID FOR S/4- Routing selection' which seems to me it's not supposed to be checked in S/4.

Not sure what is the configuration point for this 'Routing selection' field.

Routing selection is no longer necessary in S4, since the production version routing will be selected.

What you are facing is a program error and it should be corrected with the following note:
2508486 - Error message when setting 'Approval Required' indicator
