Source inspection: get variant configuration values as specifications


We are using variant configuration and source inspection for our purchasing flow. In fact we create 2 different inspection lots in the purchase flow:

inspection lot created at goods receipt --> the values of the variant configuration are copied in the inspection lot as specification

inspection lot created after PO creation (source inspection, transaction QI07) --> issue: the VC values are not copied

Both inspection types are setup in the same way ("inspection by configuration" flagged and inspection origin is "01" --> goods receipt).

Is this a restriction of SAP that the copy from VC to inspection lot only happens in the goods receipt program? Or did we do something wrong in the setup?

Thanks for the input,

      Thanks for your input.

      What you say is to implement SAP note 119708. We did this before, indeed to get a min and max characteristic as a range in 1 MIC in the inspection lot. This because ranges can not be used when you use dependencies in VC.

      But this is not solving the problem I described above. It is not possible in standard SAP to get the VC values in the inspection lot when you create it independent from a GR. In the code of the program of transaction QI07 this is not foreseen. The field CUOBJ is not filled.
