    Hi

    The purpose of an inbound delivery is initially a shipping notification or confirmation about the deliveryagainst the PO. to create an inbound delivery the PO has to have a confirmation control key with order acknowledgements at the Item level category in confirmations Tab.

    once the Order is acknowledged by vendor it can be manually entered in the PO from Me22n tcode. after that goto VL31n to create an inbound delivery with reference to PO.

    Now you will be able to create the inbound delivery

    regards,
