Production order Confirmation Error

Hi All,

Need your help on a Issue we are facing. The user is trying to do confirmation using co11n. After entering the order number and operation the system is throwing the error below

formula &1 for calculating work contains division by zero

The &1 stand for a labor calculation formula. We have checked all the parameters defined in the formula and find that there is no divide by zeror issue in any prameter.

This is the formula that is throwing the divide by zero error:

Formula: Setup Labor + (Labor / Eff. Factor * Op. qty./ Base qty.)

Std Units: H + (H/PROPOR * NoUnit/NoUnit)

Std values: 0.00 +(0.00 /100 * 1.00/1.00)

Any help in resolving this issue would be great.

thanks and regards,

    Kindly check routing for labor field. If you have maintained labor as standard value, you must have maintain any figure in routing.

    After maintaining labor field in routing, kindly re-read master data of production order.

    Check and revert back.

      Dear Ashfaq,

      Thanks a lot for the reply. The Labor field is a Std value and it is bieng maintained in the routing. Also at this point i want to mention that there have been many partial confirmations already done on the production order. The problem occured when they were trying to do the Final Confirmation.

      Through partial confirmations they have actually confirmed the enitre quanitity but now they need to do the final confirmation to complete the delivery.

      thanks and regards,

      Dear All,

      The Issue is now resolved. The users hadnt maintained the or had delted the Field Key values in the operation details user fields tab which was causing the formula to fail.

      Thanks a lot for your help
