CO13/MB31 error message Deficit of Sales Order st unr ...

Hi,

I have a production order which is assigned to a sales order (a MTO type sales order - production order relationship), I tried to reverse the confirmation using CO13.

There was an error of 'can't post to closed period' which I fixed it through replacing the dates in COGI, now I am getting another error message - "Deficit of sales order st. unr. 6 EA ...." in which 6 is the quantity I am trying to reverse back into production order. It appears to me that somehow the link between the production order and sales order is broken, however, not sure though. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Lin-Lin

    Hi Li

    Are you able to see the stock of 6 units in MMBE under sales order stock. Please check

    Hi Lin-Lin Li,

    What was the date of your confirmation? What is the desired posting date of your cancellation (CO13)?

    Isn't it possible that you want to do the cancellation earlier than the confirmation?

    Thanks,

    Csaba

    Hi Li,

    there is a deficit of stock of 6quantity that is why it is giving the error. Put required quantity in the stock as unrestricted.

    It will solve your problem.

    No stock showing for the particular sales order due to no material movement occured which is a problem - but I do know what is the real root cause. That's why I suspect the linkage between the sales order and production order is broken somehow.

    • Hi,

      First you informed us that you tried to reverse a confirmation in CO13...now you say that there's no material movement...

      Please tell us what's happened. Please check the result of your confirmation via MB51.

      If no confirmation, there's little hope for being able to cancel it.

      Thanks,

      Csaba

    Sorry, I meant to say I do NOT know the real root cause of why there was no material movement during COGI posting.

    6 units were originally confirmed, but none of the 6 units got returned during the production order cancellation.

    Hi Li,

    One gets this message when the Original Sale order stock is not available anymore. To correct this situation first the sale order stock has to be restored.

    It seems that your SD consultant may have done the Post goods issue for SD delivery & hence there is no unrestricted

    stock in Sale order line item.

    You must check with SD consultant if he can reverse the PGI.

    Technically it is possible to do the reverse PGI but if the material has been shipped then obviously you cannot do reversal.

    Also for a MTO production order the link with sale order cannot be broken unless Sale order is deleted. But Sale order cannot be deleted if there are goods movement( costs) in Production order. So do not fear that the SO-PO link might be broken.

    Just try to get the stock back in sale order line item & then you should be able to cancel the confirmation.

    Come back if you have more questions.

    Thanks,

    Ram
