VB11 Material Determination - How to substitute only when ATP fails?

I created a material determination rule with VB11 (A is replaced by B).

However, my intention was to has A replaced by B only when ATP fails in SO....

Now I have A replaced every time....

I tried to create two lines: A=>A, A=>B as alternative, but A is always replaced by A now...

Did I miss anything?

Thank you!

    Hi

    To achieve your requirement, maintain the data in VB11, and after inserting the data click on Goto--> Alternative Material (F2) and there maintain the material you want to deliver incase the first material is not available and select the MRP check Box.

    Its possible to do this. Please do as below.

    Ex: xyz is the main item and abc is the substitution item which needs to be activated only when xyz qty is less)

    1. Under VB11 maintain the following records:

    For Reason : Z003 (ATP Check)

    Material Entered is XYZ and Substitution Materials are XYZ and ABC.

    Basically Material XYZ substitutes XYZ and if the qty is less it substitutes ABC.

    2. Substitute Reason Settings are as under (SPRO):

    Reasn Z003

    Description Availability check

    Entry

    Warn

    AvCh dep. X

    Strategy

    Outcome B

    This will work wonderfully...

    Hope this helps...
