Blocked TLanes

Hi all,

We CIFed some Pur Info Records from ECC to APO, which created TLanes in APO. But some TLanes have blocking indicators marked (for the codes I am checking). I want to know if the system itself because of any reasons puts blocking indicators in a TLane?

I used to think that blocking indicators are put only manually. If system puts blocking indicators by itself, how can I find out why has it done so?

    Three possibilities:

    1)If you delete the SOS in ECC i.e The deletion flag for source of supply in ECC does not delete the external source of supply in APO. Unlike in ECC ,the external source of supply is blocked for newly created orders. In APO it is active/inactive flag instead of deletion flag.

    2)Do you use 'Source list'?

    Transport lines for integrated source of supply should be available only in case of:

    - source list is not blocked

    - source list is relevant to MRP

    - source list don't exist at all (transport line is created according source of supply values in this case)

    Otherwice transport lines should be set to status Locked.

    Please refer the SAP Notes:1224603,1127329,998393,1271779)

    3) If you Change 'Special procurement type type-20 in ECC Customizing---(i.e in TA-OMD9- key "U,# is replaced with blank --Initial) ,and re-activate CIF IMO

    Also,make sure that note 1397763 is implemented in SCM system,and note 1390459 in ECC

    Thanks and Regards

    • Hi

      Iam sure you know this - but still trigger a dummy change in your source list and then run the CIF - a CIFSRC change pointer has to be created and picked up by the CIF thats the reason iam asking you to trigger dummy change.

      Also only if source list is blocked , transportation lane will get locked. Go to change log of your source list and check if the source list was blocked at some point of time and then unblocked in R/3 . That will give you an idea why the transportation lane got locked in the first place
