What is the meaning of the "Additional stocks exist" in the MD04 ?

Hi experts.

I would like you to help me with a function of MD04.

In MD04, I usually see magnifying glass-like icons in each records, in the column of "Addl Function".

When I click it, a new window named "Additional Data for MRP Element" pops up and I can see the order numbers and dates of the requirements, and other kinds of elements there.

That is not anything wrong with that, but when I have blocked stocks of the same material as above, the magnifying glass-like icon changes to something like 3 piled up cardboard boxes.

The name "Additional stocks exist" displayed when I drag the cursor over the icon.

After clicking the icon, a new window named "Stock Statistics" comes up and there I can see the quantities of each stock types.

What for this function exists ?

Only notifying me of existence of blocked stocks?

Any help is welcome.

Best regards.

Takeshi

    yes, this is just giving you a hint that you have other stock beside of unrestricted use stock and it might be possible that this stock could become unrestricted use stock, e.g. after a quality inspection is finished, or if you plan a rework for blocked stock.

    • Hi, Jürgen.

      Thank you for your reply.

      >>it might be possible that this stock could become unrestricted use stock, e.g. after a quality inspection is finished, or if you plan a rework for blocked stock.

      That makes sense.

      Thank you very much for your detailed explanations with screenshots.

      Best regards.
