Cannot change unit of measure with 0 Stock

Dear Experts / Jurgen,

Would like to ask for solution for the following Forum -

https://answers.sap.com/questions/60489/cannot-change-unit-of-measure-with-0-stock.html?childToView=61111#answer-61111

The problem is especially for the Error Msg no. M7053, i.e. the current period is already 11 2016, how to handle for the above period 12 2015 as found this error when executing to retrieve stocks in this period ? According to MMRV, the valid posting period should be within the latest 2 months. If the stocks in the above period 12 2015 CANNOT be retrieved, how can the Unit of Measure (UOM) of the Material Master be changed ?

NOTE: Already tried to search related Forums but still could NOT find related Forum to discuss the above issue. If you are able to find the related Forum(s) to solve the above issue, pls kindly suggest to me.

Tks,

KH Fong

    SAP Masterdata Governance is a product, you should Google it if you don't know it:

    http://help.sap.com/erp_mdg_addon61/helpdata/en/77/29ad50e6542f3ce10000000a44538d/frameset.htm

    Don't pull tags just out of the blue, they are much closer to the reality, look into your SAP menu. Under which sub menu do you find such things like MM02 Change Material Master or MMPV Close period? MM Materials Management, This was the space where you posted before and which is around as tag too.

    You found a relevant discussion about changing a base unit. But you have an issue with the periods so you should search for this too, e.g. with a term like that: reopen period last year site:sap.com which also delivery 980 discussions.

    Honestly, people who had no training should not be authorized to gamble with periods.

    Try to think logical too, does it make any sense to correct a value in 2015, has there been no physical inventory since then, has there not been a year end closure and reporting to share holders or tax authorities, wouldn't a change in past year turn all reported figures into nonsense? Think about the movie Back into the future.

    You also did not understand the data in history table MARDH, so you are on a totally wrong track with re-opening a last years period anyway. Read my blog in which I explain the history table https://blogs.sap.com/2013/06/06/material-stock-and-valuation-history-tables-how-to-read-them/

    This has been discussed some hundred times, it is not adding any value to discuss this again. you are supposed to search before asking.

    If you think that existing discussions are not appropriate for your case then link such discussions and explain what you did and why the solution is not appropriate.

    Again you have chosen a wrong tag (tags can be corrected by clicking the Actions and then chose edit, no need to post it again.)

    Dear Jurgen,

    Only some discussions to state that stocks must be retrieved from previous period to current period, like below -

    https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/1595624

    However, the discussions cannot exactly cover our problem. To state our problem again, the current period is already 11 2016, how to handle for the above period 12 2015 as found the Error Msg no. M7053 when executing to retrieve stocks in this period ? According to MMRV, the valid posting period should be within the latest 2 months. If the stocks in the above period 12 2015 CANNOT be retrieved, how can the Unit of Measure (UOM) of the Material Master be changed ?

    Below screens are for ref. -

    Error when changing UOM of Material Master

    Stocks of previous period found in table MARDH

    If you found any one discussion which can have exact solution for the above problem, could you suggest it ?

    The tag "SAP Master Data Governance" is already most relevant as far as I searched. If you found more appropriate tag relevant to the above, could you suggest it ?

    Tks,

    KH Fong
