Internal HU Postings in WM


Apologies if this is in the wrong place, I'm a first time poster here.

I'm looking for help for a problem we have in our company within WM. We have HU management installed, but it seems to cause us an issue when doing the following 2 things:

1. Reversal of a VAS production order.

After the components are picked and TO's confirmed into storage type VAS, occasionally we need to reverse these picks due to cancellation of customer orders. However it seems that the HU Object Key becomes set to the production order number (table VEKP, fields VPOBJ and VPOBJKEY) and we can do nothing else except GI the component to the order. This means that to correct our stock to the physical situation, we can only process the order to completion, receive the finished goods, then stock adjust them off, before adjusting on the original component again.

Has anyone encountered this before or have any other solution to this that doesn't involve impacting on our absolute stock adjustment values?

2. Reversal of stock in 999.

This is a similar issue I believe - once a HU has moved into 999 (either through an inventory count discrepancy, or through a TO difference), the HU cannot be moved out of there again, it can only be written off the system. This means if we difference, for example, 100pcs into 999 and then find them subsequently elsewhere, instead of just moving the HU of 100pcs from 999 back into a storage bin, we have to write the stock off then adjust on again, which again impacts on our absolute adjustment values.

Again, can anyone help?

Best regards,

      (1). Have you tried to set TECHO after confirming the production order, then look the object key. It is pretty much similar to the one, you are using for despatching also. This scenario in despatching is clearly managed by, reversing the delivery, remove the HUN, reverse the Goods.

      (2). Why don't you use the material number instead of HU for your warehouse movements? I dun understand. We do have HU, but only using for despatching process, but for physical movements inside the warehouse, we use the materials number. Can you tell me, what are the issues you encountered, if you use the material number in the similar transactions?
