Forbid partial delivery of item, but allow partial delivery of sales order


have someone faced situation when it is required to allow partial delivery for sales order with restriction that item in sales order should be delivered fully. For example:

SO has following items:

Item1 MAT1 10 un

Item2 MAT2 10 un

Item3 MAT3 10 un

Material MAT3 only 5 un available in storage. MAT1 and MAT2 are available.

The system should create delivery for Items 1 and 2, but not for 3. Next time when creating delivery from SO and MAT3 is available, delivery is created por item3.

I have found Partial delivery indicator on client data. This allows partial delivery. Then I have found partial delivery indicator on sales order item data (Shipping).

Is it possible to combine those two indicators to ensure client request?

Can this requirement be covered in another way?

Thanx in advance!

    You can achieve the requirment using customer-material information record.

    In t.code VD51, maintain customer-material information record. Here you can find a field called partial delivery/item field. Here you maintain value C- Only complete delivery allowed. Leave the max.Par.deliveries field blank.

    This will make sure that the partial deliveries are NOT allowed for a particular customer/material combination. If you maintain this setting at customer master level (t.code VD02), then this will apply for all materials.

    As already mentioned, you can enable this by means of customer material information record.

    Even if you dont CMIR, the same field is available in sales order item in shipping tab. There you can select the value C. This will ensure that items need to be fully delivered, but the SO can be delivered with partial items (of full quantity)
