Unable to Delete Inbound Delivery after the assigned HU is deleted...

Hi All,

I have a problem with Inbound Delivery with HU.

1. The Inbound delivery with 1 HU was created

2. The PGR was done

3. The PGR was reversed sometime later with MBST

4. Now the user wanted to delete the Inbound Delivery

5. I used the Transaction HUMO, chose the HU, Unlocked it, Emptied it and Deleted the HU

6. Now, when we try to delete the line item in the inbound delivery, the system gives an error that HU is already packed

7. When I unlocked, emptied and deleted the HU, the HU was not to be seen in the "Pack" option of the Inbound Delivery anyways. That is why, I used HUMO to unpack and empty the HU.

Can somebody help me in deleting the line item in the Inbound Delivery and the ID itself?

Many Thanks in Advance for your help.

    Dear Ananthram,

    I have some ideas how to fix this but I dont have a system infront of me to check the solution so bear with me... The problem with you current delivery is, I guess, that the packing status in tables VBUP/VBUK = C. The delivery status is determined based on the document flow table VBFA. So, probably, the two residual links left between the delivery and the HU are:

    1) In table VBFA (one table entry specifically for the HU)

    2) In table VEKP (fields VPOBJ and VPOBJKEY)

    So the "quick and dirty" way to correct to this is to remove both links directly on the DB and use the report RVDELSTA to redetermine the new packing status for the delivery. The packing status will return to A and it should be possible to delete the delivery.

    Better would be to try to reassign the HU to the delivery and the remove it using the correct proceedure i,e. via the delivery packing screen using the unassign function.

    If you cant get this to work or the direct DB update method is not palatable, contact SAP support and they will correct the situation.

    All the best,

    • Dear Ananthram,

      We have same problem as you have. We solved our problem like following.

      We are using MB01 with 102 movement type. We select same purchase order and reference doc.

      After that we go VL32N and use pack button we create one label and delete link and label an SAVE it.

      ─░ts OK.

    Please check the purchase order whether Gr based indicator is ticked and delivery has been done. If Gr based indicator is ticked you cannot delete the individual line item from the delivery.

    Please can cel the delivery created and recreate the new one.

    I hope this helps.

    When reversing PGR on a delivery we use VL09 (I think you did the same with MBST). We then go into the delivery using transaction VL32N and go into pack area of the delivery where the HUs in the delivery can be found. Here you trash the HU, then delete the delivery. This will remove the HU from HUMO. I am not sure if you will be able to do this since you have made changes to the HU, but you can try.

    Hope it is of some help,
