error message Material is obsolete /inactive

Hi

We have a transaction to bill to the customer for PN 336001008.

MMBE shows 12 on hand for our plant 5625,

Yet when we try to do the upload, we get an error message Material is obsolete /inactive

The error message appears when doing the SD Program for upload. but MMBE, the material is available in my plant, but due to obsolete flag, not allowing me to complete the transaction.

What to do for resolution.

Thanks.

    In the materail master just go to Purchasing view and make sure that the field called Plant-sp.matl status should be blank.

      Hi

      I have checked that field in purchasing view, the field called Plant-sp.matl status is not blank i.e. 07 (Not Spareable.)

      There are other option is list i.e.

      02 is for Obsolate

      08 is for obsulate/Inavtive

      09 is for Inactive

      Pls let me know if Plant-sp.matl status field = 07 (Not Spareable) then i t would not allowed for process that part no in any transaction.

      What other reason should i check for this error. Pls confrom

      Regards

    if you get the message that material is obsulate/Inavtive, and plant specifc material status has a different value. then you global material status at basic data view is set to 08 obsulate/Inavtive
