Create deliveries with 0 quantity

Hello,

I am trying to create deliveries with 0 quantity.

In the respective customer master database, I have set field KNVV-KZTLF to 'B'.

In customizing, I have set field MNG0P in transaction 0VLP to 'empty' or 'A'

Problem is that while creating a delivery, SAP says 'No schedule lines due for delivery up to the selected date'

Any tips are more than welcome

    Dear Bas

    The message 'No schedule lines due for delivery up to the selected date' normally comes when stock is not available or not confirmed in schedule line tab.

    Moreover, can you please let me know for what purpose, you are trying to create delivery with zero quantity and what you would like to achieve from that ??

    thanks

      Dear Lakshmipathi,

      Purpose of a delivery item with '0 quantity' is to close the preceding sales document item.

      Suppose that an order contains 10 lines, but 2 of them are not confirmed due to not enough stock. (they are confirmed with a quantity of 0). We don't do any partial deliveries, so we can not treat the remaining 2 order lines as backorders. This means the 2 order lines are considered as 'open', e.g. they are still transferring requirements to MRP. The obvious solution of course is to manually cancel the order item. However this is a lot of work, so this would mean lot of manual effort from the user or use of a user-exit.

      SAP.help tells me to set the partial delivery field in the customer master (KNVV-KZTLF) to 'B' and to configure the delivery item category to so that MNG0P in transaction 0VLP is set to 'empty' or 'A':

      ''Any delivery quantity, even zero, completes processing of the order. This indicator can be used, for example, for customers who want no backorders to be generated, even when a delivery quantity is zero"

      (http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp60_sp/helpdata/en/50/686e42f50b0d53e10000000a155106/frameset.htm)

      My sales order is still open,although I have delivered the 8 order lines.

      Thanks for your help,

      Bas

    Hi

    The configuration for Delivery Item category holds good and it serves the purpose.

    But, you cannot create the delivery for that schedule line unless it is due for delivery.If I'm correct, your line item must be having a second schedule line with confirmed quantities. Please try to create the delivery with a FUTURE DATE for the field Slection Date in VL01N.

    Thanks,

    Ravi

    Hi,

    Check the min.order quantity in Material master data. and Give delivery date and shipping point in delivery transaction.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    Go to the sales order --> Item --> Schedule line. You can see the schedule line date there. Give the same date in VL01N.

    This only works if the order is confirmed, and if the delivery is created but there is not enough stock. The order and delivery thus are closed, and no requirement to MRP is transferred. Solution is to NOT perform an ATP check during sales order createion, so that everything is confirmed. Then we can create delivery, GI and billing doc with 0 value, close of the complete sales order flow!
