Item Completion rule with Reason for Rejection

Hi

I am creating a sales order with reference to another sales order.( say S1 category -> S2 category) My item category for S1 and S2 are same. I have used item category completion rule "B" for this item category. This is required as I want to see available qty in S1 getting decreased as I reference it more and more.

Now if I close S2 through some reason for rejection and the rejection rule is defined so that I can re-reference the quantity that was rejected, then I find that the item category completion rule is over riding this. i.e. i still find the available qty of S1 not going up once I have rejected S2 through a reason for rejection.

I have tried using 2 different item categories for S1 & S2 but without any effect.

regards

    Hi,

    The important thing to note is that the completion rule is valid only for Quotations / Inquiries / Contracts, and NOT for sales orders. The F1 help for this field clearly states that.

    See also SAP Note 85535 which says:

    Order item category has been configured with a completion rule. Order items are not relevant for reference, so the reference status will never be set to complete.

    hi

    COMPLETION rule is applicable only for INQUIRYIES,QUOTATION and CONTRACT. its not valid for sales orde. thats why sales order qty(S1) is not reducing.

      Yes I know that item completion is applicable that ways. But if used with sales orders, where one sales order is referencing another, and the item category completion rule B is used along with the +/- indicator in copy control, then we can have the available qty reduced for every successive referencing of S1 documents by S2.

      And my problem is coming not when I am referencing. it is coming when I am rejecting the 2nd document(S2). I want the qty in S2 to be available for re-referencing. This is not happening as the item completion rule is clearly making the items in S1 show as completed. Hence if there is any error in creating a S2 document, just rejecting it, is not allowing me to re-reference that qty from S1.

      with best regards
