    1. First of all, please check whether the STO exists in delivery due index table VETVG.

    2. If STO exists in VETVG, you have to check whether you are using correct selection criteria. I would suggest you to leave delivery date as blank. Just use the STO number to select.

    3. If STO doesn't exist in VETVG, it means that the STO is not relevant to delivery. Some customizing might be missing. Please then check the STO. Is there Shipping Data tab in item details? (Table entry in EKPV table).

    [1] If there is no shipping data, it means that customizng is missing. Please define shipping data.

    IMG -> MM -> purchasing -> purchasing order -> set up STO.

    Here you have to define shipping data for plant (sales area for supplying plant, customer for receiving plant). You also have

    to assign delivery type.

    Then you also have to maintain shipping point determination. (img -> le -> shp -> basic function -> set shipping point


    [2] If there is shipping data (EKPV entry exists), you have to check whether "delivery creation date" is blank or not. If it's blank,

    it means that the item is not to be delivered. Either it has been fully delivered, or the PO item has been deleted / rejected.

    [3] If shipping data (EKPV entry) exists and "delivery creation date" is not blank, please apply note 61148 and run report

    ZKORVETV to reset index table VETVG.

    • for [1]

      If it's intra-company sto and you are using document type UB, you don't need to maintain vendor for supplying plant.

      If it's a inter-company sto and you are using document type NB, you have to assign a vendor to the supplying plant.

      (xk02 -> purchasing data -> extras -> central purchasing data -> assign a plant to the vendor).

      for [2]

      As I mentioned in the previous reply:

      - assgin customer data to the receiving plant; assign sales area to supplying plant.

      - assign delivery type.

      - maintain shipping point determination.

      These should be enough to determine shipping data.

    Thanks a lot . Now I have created the Delivery . The problem is when I use vl06o to pick the material,

    It need create TO. but I don't setup this plant in WM.

    So I can't create TO to pick the parts. May I use normal inventory managment way to pick and do PGI ?

    Hello all,

    just in case someone see that post (As I did in my research):

    If you have SAP Transportation management (SAP TM) activated, pls check notes/ thread:

    1) How you make the POs visible

    2066980 - Purchase Document not selected in VL10*

    2)How you create a variant

    3) How that variant can be saved and added to the user

    1976208 - Selection of External TMS-Relevant Orders option in user role in VL10* transactions

    (I rather think SU52 Transaction shall be taken for setting the parameter)
