Unable to generate IDOCs in BD30 for BOMs because of Validity Date

218 Views

Hello everyone,

I am having a unique issue with our Bills of Materials. After they are created and set to active, they have validity dates that go from 2001 to 9999. When I go to BD30 to distribute the BOM to the external systems I am getting the following error message:

No bill of material exists on 08/25/2009 for 2557B27H02/FBLR/1/01

Message no. BOM014

Diagnosis

You want to distribute BOM 2557B27H02/FBLR/1/01 via ALE. However, the BOM is invalid on 08/25/2009.

System Response

The system does not distribute the BOM.

Procedure

Check the BOM's validity.

If you want to distribute all BOMs with the change status for another key date, enter another valid-from date on the initial screen.

If you only want to distribute a certain BOM with the change status for another key date, enter another valid-from date or a change number on the selection screen.

We get this for any BOM in this system.

This is our QA environment and do not have this problem in our Development system. BD30 finds the BOM we specified but claims it is invalid on that date.

We are trying to figure out if there is another status or approval step that I am missing here.
