Can I receipt a material which has a block on it like 01 or 02?

I have an internal customer who wants to put a block on the material which is on order. The PO has been released and they want to put a block on it. I am wondering if I put a block 01 or 02 on it would they be able to receipt the item when it actually arrives?

    there is a detail view in the ERP backend customizing for those status where you can exactly control the behavior.

    The standard delivery of SAP ERP is that 01 "Blocked for procment/whse" it does not allow any goods receipt (Inventory managment message = B = Error"), whereas 02 "Blocked for task list/BOM" does nothing.

    But customer might have changed that behavior or defined their own statuses.

    The IMG activity for the status management is SIMG_CFMENUOLMSOMS4.

    Hope this is the information you are looking for and it helps - and I was happy to help with some almost forgotten know how from the old days .... its still helpful sometimes as I can see 😉

    Best regards

      Thanks for this Ingo. In our company the 01 block is actually "Universal block" on the basic data 1 page and 02 is "Blocked from Internal and external procurement". The item that they have raised the PO for is not available in the market hence they want to block the item, but as I said there has been a PO already raised and supplier is going to supply an alternative.

      Meanwhile we don't want anyone else to raise a requisition or a purchase order. So is it ok if I put a 02 block?
