Changing the Availability Check key in an existent Sales Order line

Hello gurus.

Is it possible to modify the Availability Check key (VBAP-MTVFP) of a material in an existent Sales Order line?

I changed it in the material master, but since documents are not automatically updated, I wanted to modify this value in an existing sales order line. I am not even able to find the field in it.

I had to delete the order line and create it again, but then I have troubles getting the exact same confirmed date that I had before.

Any help? Thank you.

    You cant see at item level. To see in sale order, click from top menu bar, Environment -- Availability. Now you can see the availability check on top of the screen.

    Meanwhile, I dont think, this field will be in editable mode once partial delivery is made in which case, LSMW also wont help you.

    If your requirement is desperate to change the availability check, to me the available option is close the existing sale orders, create fresh orders after changing the availability check in material master. On the other hand, if you want to change only in sale order, then the option is LSMW as you cant even succeeed in TCode MASS

    thanks

      Hi Laxmipathi,

      The change should happen on the existing sales order. I am NOT sure how it can be done via LSMW. I tried to find a user exit to change the availability check value but unsuccessful. If possible, kindly let me know about the steps to be followed via LSMW. Thank you very much.

    This is a very old post, but having been researching, I thought I would add this suggestion as it works for us.

    The way to do this is to update the schedule line category (VBEPKOM-ETTYP) to a value of 'CN' which is the SAP standard choice for suppressing ATP.

    You may choose to configure your own schedule line category based on your needs. And, you will have to make sure it is assigned as an alternate choice in IMG > SD > Sales > Sales documents > Schedule lines > Assign

    We did this to improve performance and it seems to have shaved off 20-30% of a BAPI order simulation call.
