Cannot release inventory allocated as Sales Order Stock

Hi All, I'm very new to SAP and am somewhat unfamiliar with the SD process. We created a Sales Order (from a customer purchase order), everything was okay until we tried to do an ATF; a change was made to the strategy group (from 20 - MTO to 40 - MTO with final assembly). That change allowed us to create a new sales order and successful do the ATF and ship the order. Now, however, we find that there is one item in inventory that has been allocated to that old sales order as "Sales Order Stock", we can see this in MMBE. We've tried to delete the sales order, but it cannot be deleted. When we try to delete it, we're getting a message "For reasons of cost management item 000010 cannot be deleted, Message No. V1128"; we have no idea what this means or what caused the initial error with the sales order. Is there a way to relese this inventory and return it to regular stock and delete that old sales order? Hope I gave enough information, thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    You have tried delete a sales document item for which cost management is carried out. Cost management can exist at item level for Make to Order Production order and stock. You can not delete this item. Enter a reason for rejection to reject the order. But to completely delete this sales order (Item) you have to carry out the cost settlement for the production order and reverse the Goods issue of the Production order and delete the sales order, so the MD04 gets updated and stock will also be relased.

    Hi Ram,

    Unless we're doing something wrong, we're unable to find a production order tied into that sales order. In MD04, we can see the sales order number/item number. But that sales order number was rejected, and a new one issued. The only production order that was issued was completed and closed; so there is no open production order that references that old sales order. AM I missing something? Thank you

    • Hi Xamiaca,

      You key in the sales order number in VA02 and ,you can see the production order number in the schedule line tab(Production- at the bottom). Take down that number and go to "CO02" and see the status of production order and the settlement status. If the settlement has happened, take a FI/CO consultants help to cancel the Financial postings and reverse the goods issue of this production order. After doing all these go to the sale order and delete the sales order ,this automatically deletes the Production order and the sales order stock. If needed the run the report "SDRQCR21" If still you see any inconsistencies after doing all the above.Kindly please let me know If you need any more information on this.

      Regards
