    Dear Varinder Verma,

    thank you for the details provided.

    Error QA495 is raised most of the time to avoid creating stock inconsistencies in the system.

    I think your case is following:

    The affected material has an active stock relevant inspection type (01 or 09). To movement type 349 (for each "variant") lot origin 08 is assigned. (It can be checked in transaction OMJJ --> Movement type --> tab 'Update control / WM movement types' --> Details.) When you try to post the stock with MIGO (or MB1B) with movement type 349 for this material, system expects a lot origin 08 to be created, which cannot happen according to your current configuration. Therefore, error QA495 is raised properly to avoid any stock inconsistency. Message text also says:

    "... You want to make a stock posting to/from the inspection stock. This is not allowed for material xyz because the quality inspection control has been activated by QM. The following cases can occur:

    • The inspection stock should be increased, although an inspection is not foreseen for the current goods movement ..."

    To avoid QA495 your configuration needs to be adjusted. It is not possible (or recommended) to bypass this error message to keep the system consistent.

    What might cause QA495 in your case is that inspection types 01 and/or 09 are stock relevant, while indicator 'Insp. for HU' is active for the inspection type 08 in the material master. Therefore, the 08 lot would be created at packing of the delivery, not during the stock posting.

    Have a nice day,
