# Partial Confirm Transfer Order

Hi,

Just had a scenario where I book in a PO and that creates an auto Transfer Order.

Lets assume the PO is for a Quantity of 10 and the TO is for 10 aswell. Now when I am confirming the TO via LT12 i realize that I have space for 5 only so I confirm the TO for 5 yet the TO is then completed for some reason. What i want to see is that the TO was for 10 and I have confirmed 5 so I should really have an open TO for 5.

How can I achieve this?

Hello,

If we confirm a single item in TO with 10 quantity, it would confirm for the whole quantity.Not sure how this is possible with TO.before creating the TO , we can create a TO from TR with 5 qty, but in your case you are creating auto TO.I would go with manual TO if that is the case and create the TO only for 5 qty.Then the TR for 5 qty will remain open.OR if you want to confirm the partial quantity , you will have to mention difference qty in TO. Not sure if this helps you resolve your issue.

What's the sense of having an open TO (partially confirmed)? If you can put only 5 pcs into a bin then put 5 pcs into that bin and that's all.

What are you going to do with the remaining 5 pcs and the partially processed TO? Will the warehouse worker stay at the bin and wait until someone remove some stock from the bin and he can put the remaining quantity into it (however if there's open (not confirmed) TO it may block the stock!). What I think is that if you can only put 5 pcs into a bin but you have 10 pcs to put away you will search for another where you can place the other 5 pcs (generally).

Can you justify your requirement (maybe you can)?

(I just want to say that transactions in a WH (generally) should be done quickly and you don't have time to play with partially confirmed open TOs. If you can realize a goods movement in the WH only in two step, you can use two TOs for it.)

In standard SAP when you confirm the TO with difference SAP will post the difference to an interim storage type / bin (you can set it in trx OMLX). So, the TO won't remain open because th system thinks that you removed the quantity from the source bin and if you confirm only a part of it the rest has been lost somewhere...

You can use two step confirmation when you have to confirm the stock removal as well however this won't help to resolve the problem described by you.

But you can consider the use of changing destination bin if it is suitable for your business scenario.

Morning,

I think your client's life would be easier if they'd accommodate to standard SAP's solution in this case...

In SAP you don't use partially confirmed TOs (in a way your client wants) as I explained in my previous message. If they check the open / partially processed TRs in LB10 they can achieve the same w/o this "open TO idea".

Else you have to apply to development in my opinion and it may mean higher cost for your client than standard solution (and standard solution gives the same to them...).

Regards,

Csaba

Correction:

The above mentioned message cannot solve the problem. You should use capacity check in this case it shouldn't occur that they cannot put the stock into the bin (if stock figures are proper...). If they still cannot I suggest to use the satndard solution: confirm with differences or use another destination bin.

Hi,

The difference qty will go to the 999 storage type. u can see it in LT10 T-code. there u need to enter storage type as 999. Again if you found the difference qty select the TO and go for foreground option.

You can also use t-code LL01 Warehouse Activity Monitor to watch for these occurrences. This report also gives you the full picture of what is going on in the warehouse. I would recommend setting your putaway strategy to 'L' next empty bin to prevent these occurrences. This is of course if they are not maintaining their master data to allow for capacity checking at the bin level.
