Stock transport order Free to "E" or MARC-SBDKZ = blank

Hello everybody

I need to solve the following issue for our customer.

Business scenario

Company code A (Plant A, Plant B)

Company code B

Sales organisation B (assigned to the company code B)

We are creating an STO from the customer order (SalesOrg B) out. This STO is assigned to the customer order (customer specific stock).

We transfer the stock from Plant A to Plant B (Company code A). When the inventory is there, we deliver this item and create two invoices (customer and intercompany invoice).

According to the sap note #305582, we need to create either an MRP-Element with the customer spec. stock in plant A (delivery plant) or we withdraw it from the unrestricted stock, in order to be able to do STO with the assignment to the customer order.

Case 1 withdrawal takes place from customer stock -> requirements indicator MARC-SBDKZ needs to be either blank or 1.

Case 2 withdrawal takes place from unrestricted stock -> we need to use consumption indicator E etc.


Due to different reasons requirements indicator MARC-SBDKZ appears to be “2” and we cannot change it neither to blank or “1”.

If we withdraw it from unrestricted stock, we need to use consumption indicator E. From CO point of view, this means that the customer order (item) needs to be handled in a different way. (VA88) Our CO-Team is not happy about it.


Whether there is any possibility to control requirements indicator dynamically depends on a business scenario?

e.g. if the account assignment type is “X”, we create an mrp-element with customer specific stock and proceed as if the requirement indicator were blank.

We already tried Badi MD_CHANGE_MRP_DATA. It did not work.

Do you have any idea how we can handle it?

Thanks in advance and best regards
