Closing of orders

Hi All,

i have problem, my users have created orders for material belonging to mat. group X and after some days without closing the orders they have changed the material group to Y now we are not able to close the pending orders as it has been created with X and now we are getting error while closing the order. is there any way to close? or should i change the material group again to X and close the orders and again make it Y.

Thanks

Ashwini K.

    in the sales order line item " sales b" tab - change the material group and save.

    then close the order with reason for rejection

    What error you are facing on changing

    while changin material group either at Sales Order - Item

    - Sales B

    or

    - Additional data A

    As, both being statistical( used for report & grouping ) fields in sales order, it should not cause error.

    If you have material group (Sales B) used as key combination for any of pricing condition record.

    To eliminate the error, rearrange the condition record which are based on material group.

    If you still have any concern or doubt, kindly revert back.

    Regards

    Hi Ashwini,

    Based on you description of the issue, it seems that the value X has been removed from the material groups. This should have not be done for a material group that has been used in any of sales orders, as the systems checks if the entry is available in csutomizing table often even in display mode, so it may happen you will not be able to display previous sales orders as well. Check if the group X is still available in customizing - if not restore it and then you will be able to change it in existing sales orders to some other.

    Regards,

    Marcin

      Hello,

      As the order is created in an older date/month, the system expect the condition type on that particular day. Maintain the material listing for the date in VB01 (maintian the from and to date as the order date) and do the necessary action on your orders and revert/delete the condition record, if necessary.
