Where is the block indicator in APO transportation lane coming from

Hi,

In APO, we have the blocking indicator on the transportatation lane. Now we are wondering where it is comming from because when we remove the block indicator from a product specifi transportation lane, we noticed that the blcok indicator is removed untill we make a new change to the material master.

So according to me, it is coming out of the material masterdata in R/3.  But is there anybody who can give me the field in R/3 material master or the interface where this is happening?

We do use the special procurement type in the target location with procuremnent type external procurement.

Regards,

Tommy

    Is it a vendor branch transportation lane . If thats the case then the blocking indicator is coming from the R/3 source list. Check the source list - you will find that the vendor is blocked for that material .

    Thanks

      Hi;

      If that is between the plants; then Tlane would have created from special procurement type(Source from another plant) in the destinaton location in the material master. Even the Tlane is blocked in APO and it becomes active again with the next CIF of material master unless the SPT is changed.

    If there is no PIR/SL, that may be the reason why TLane is getting blocked. Because otherwise how is procurement relationship maintained?

    Also check if PIR and SL was there once and afterwards deleted in R3. This may result in TLanes getting blocked in APO.

    Removing the blocking indicator directly in APO won't solve the problem because after the master data is CIFed from ECC/R3 to APO, again it will block the TLane since there is no PIR for it.
