    As already assumed, this is not standard, this is homemade and amateurish programming style. Contact your own IT department to get your issue solved

    Can you post the error message number, I can't remember having seen this message before, and even Google is not able to find this message.

    And the message does not make much sense either, as a cancellation of the receipt to a STO would actually add stock into transit, so it can't become negative by this posting.

    Jürgen, you are being quite harsh on the programming style - don't you know it is the modern minimalistic style? Leave a lot of white space - very artistic - kind of like this website :) Jokes aside, and yes, that popup is pretty amateurish...

    I have seen this sort of error before. I think what is happening is that when attempting to do the reversal, the stock that is being looked for is the restricted quality stock and not the stock which is now unrestricted. Even native SAP is not going to allow this. I think the standard SAP response for this situation is to initiate a formal returns process. The thought here is that if the material was received and then went through the quality process successfully, then there is much more to do than just reverse the transaction. You will potentially have to reverse billing, initiate processes related to a vendor giving you bad material, etc... That begs the question - why is there a quality process turned on for an STO? Is there any inter-plant billing? What is the inter-plant accounting when goods get sent back? Is there a transportation charge? etc.
