    It will allow the system to issue goods from this location, even when there is no stock. You can issue 5 pieces from a location that has only 3 pieces. The result will be -2. You should always try to set this quantity to zero or positive asap.

    Kind Regards

    • Hi Jimmy,

      Thank you for your answer.

      According to my previous question, I have a case as the following:

      - Company sell subcontract services to manufacture a finished product

      - But some of the raw materials comes from its customer

      - Meanwhile SAP ByD is not allowed to receive goods without preceding document (i.e PO),

      - Therefore I create a dummy site (which allow negative stock) and currently stock on hand = 0. Then I generate stock transfer order from it to main site.

      - However I face the following error:

      Kindly advice what I missed to configure (the system unable to select the warehouse/storage I configured before).

      Thanks and Regards,
