Inventory management: posting block : material master field

Hi,

In het material master you have a field Physical Inventory Blocking Indicator, but when I create a counting document (MI01) with posting block. The field in the material master is still blank. How can this happen?

Best regards,

Eric.

    Hi,

    When you do Posting block in inventory count document, then at that there will be no posting to any of the accounts, so that it will nt have any account difference...

    While the indicator in MMR ie .PI inv. block indicator is used to block the PI but not the posting...

    I hope it helps...

    Regards

    at which level do you look?

    only at plant level or at storage location level?

    At plant level it will only show up if this material has a physical inventory in all storage locations at the same time.

    Hi Eric,

    Are you checking in the MMR Storage location stock view for the Material/Plant/ Storage location against the Inventory Blocking or else?

    Hi Eric,

    I guess there is some inconsistency in your system,

    Please refer to the SAP Note 355939 & 192571 and you might be able to fix the bug..

    Note 355939

    Summary

    Symptom

    This note is only of importance for you if you execute physical inventory functions using the R/3 System. The inconsistencies can usually be adequately eliminated using Note 192571. This note is only intended for customers who did not discover the inconsistency in the first period of the new fiscal year and who now have problems with the physical inventory indicators.

    Additional key words

    RMMMPERI, MMPV, physical inventory, PIINKON, MARD-KZILL, MARD-SPERR

    Cause and prerequisites

    See Note 192571.

    Solution

    To eliminate the inconsistencies, carry out the following steps in the corresponding sequence:

    1. Implement the corrections from Note 192571

    2. Also implement the attached correction instructions

    3. Start program ZREPPI_FLAGS (from Note 192571)

    4. Start program ZINVUT30 (from Note 67072)

    Source code corrections

    Note 192571

    Summary

    Symptom

    Preliminary note:

    This note only applies to you if you execute physical inventory functions in the R/3 System.

    In the log of the period closing program running during the fiscal year change, the number of the records closed does not correspond to the actual number of records in the corresponding stock table on the database.

    As a result, the physical inventory indicators were not moved from the current fiscal year to the previous year in the records that are not closed. This means that materials, for which a physical inventory was carried out in the previous year, are dealt with by the system as if a physical inventory has already been carried out in the current year.

    This problem can affect materials created before the upgrade to Release 4.5.

    Additional key words

    RMMMPERI, MMPV, inventory, PIINKON, MARD-KZILL, MARD-SPERR

    Cause and prerequisites

    The problem is caused by a program error.

    Solution

    If you have not yet carried out the fiscal year change (for example, if you have a fiscal year variant with non-calendar fiscal year), the attached correction can correct the error.

    If you do not yet use Release 4.5B with at least Hot Package 09, in the four following form routines you must implement the deletion/insertion sequence listed in the attachment only once. Do not implement them twice each time as described in the "Corrections" section.

    - Form MARD_UPDATE_JW_DB2DB4

    - Form MCHB_UPDATE_JW_DB2DB4

    - Form MSKA_UPDATE_JW_DB2DB4

    - Form MSKU_UPDATE_JW_DB2DB4

    Caution: Implement the corrections WITHOUT comment lines or added comments !!!

    Comments between EXEC SQL and ENDEXEC can lead to the 'DBIF_DSQL2_SQL_ERROR' at the fiscal year change.

    If you carried out the fiscal year change in Release 4.5 or 4.6A and use R/3 Physical Inventory Management, you can, after implementing the attached correction in your system, repair the affected records as follows:

    Run correction report ZREPPI_FLAGS.

    After the execution of report ZREPPI_FLAGS, you should implement report ZINVUT30 mentioned in Note 67072 in your system and execute the report for those materials for which a physical inventory has already been executed in the current fiscal year.

    If you recognize the inconsistency only in a later period, also refer to Note 355939.

    Trust this helps

    Regards

    Merwyn
