Storage Location Determination in Delivery

We have a requirement where during the delivery creation process the system should be able to determine storage location(s) for the item and create separate line items on the delivery (based upon multiple storage locations) if the entire sales order line item quantity is not available in a single storage location.

We have multiple storage locations per plant and the same material is stored in several 'overflow' storage locations besides the main storage location. The system currently works as it should but the problem arises when the SO line item qty is greater than the qty in the main SLOC and the delivery needs to be picked from 2 or more SLOCs to fulfill the SO line item.

Has anyone run into this situation and if so how was this handled and resolved?

Your thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi Shekhar,

    I believe the required behaviour cannot be 'configured' in standard and you may have to consider using modification e.g. user exit. It is possible to set a default storage location for a combination of Shipping Point/Plant/Shipping condition. It is also possible to check the availability of this storage location. However, it is not possible to automatically suggest an alternative storage location if there is insufficient qty available at the default storage location.

    If you choose this option; When the delivery is created, if there is no available qty available at the default storage location, the system will leave the delivery qty empty and return an error message in the error log. You can then manually change the storage location, and the new storage location will then be checked for availability. You might also want to have a look at

    Form USEREXIT_LGORT_DETERMINATION in MV50AFZZ. Hope this helps.
