Creation of EGR documents for local EWM warehouse XXX not possible ,(​S4 system)

Message no. /SPE/ID_HANDLING166

I dont get any results after executing transaction -

/SPE/EGR - Maintenance of Expected Goods Receipt

I have several open PO in released status , for which no inbound delivery/asn is created.

I am selecting wide open date range.

I ran the transaction in test mode and without test mode,by entering the 3 digit ERP warehouse and without any value as well, with a thought ECC wareouse is the link for ECC and EWM.

I also tried with multiple combination, like giving just Vendor or PO or material #.

Wondering if this is outof the box feature , or we have to any configuration to ensure it produces results..

ANY Help is highly appreciated

    Hi Ganesh,

    Please use below links that sven denecken shared in his blog. it is more useful to understand SAP EWM on S/4HANA.

    #S4HANA 1610 use case series: 4a – Warehouse Management (biz view)

    #S4HANA 1610 use case series: 4b – Warehouse Management (Tech view)

    hope it is useful.

    you have an embedded EWM in your S/4HANA? No EGR report is necessary there anymore, no EGR document does exist. Part of the simplification. The report is there, because you still need it for a decentral EWM.

    And it is EWM. NOT eWM - Duh!
    And if your question includes the word "transfer order" - do NOT tag the question with Extended Warehouse Management!

      Thanks much Juergen for your reply ,

      Yes its embedded in S/4Hana. If as you say the report is no longer necessary, then with what has SAP replaced this functionality. Can you please help to understand. i can open new thread if it had to be addressed separately.

    the functionality has not been replaced with anything. In embedded EWM it is just not necessary to use this report anymore to create documents like the GRN and the EGR. Because that is all it does.

    You can see the workload with /SCWM/GRWORK directly and you can create inbound deliveries with /SCWM/GRPE or /SCWM/GRPI without having these interim documents. The advantage of the embedded EWM is that it can access POs and production orders directly in these transactions and does not need the plan documents.

    There even is a Fiori app to create inbound deliveries for purchase orders, also for this the EGR doc is not required.
