item category not defined

Hi gurus,

My client need help to ship some parts.

He creates the delivery (VL01N)

And when we enter the batch we have an error message appearing : Item category is not defiened.

I check in the sales order and everything is ok (item category ZXXX for free charge). In the maeterial master the item category group is NORM.

Do you have any suggestions of issues which can cause such an error.

Please advice

Regards

      OK the problem:

      There is a standard order of 14 unit, in a make to stock envrionment.

      there is only one schedule item in the sales order with item category ZXXX (free of charge)

      This is a normal order processing not a return.

      the SD people made a split batch. they succeed with one batch number to deliver 4 and they want by using the same batch number to deliver another 4 unit.
