Planned order start dates

We are using backward scheduling - so our planned order start dates are calculated via production versions/lead time from PIR finish dates. I would like to be able to go into planned orders and manually override the start date. Is that possible? When I do this now, upon saving the planned order it r...

Re: Material Master Number Range challenge

You are right DD, thanks so much, that worked! I reset the current number of the 500000-599999 range to 0, then SAP allowed me to change the range to 601850-699999.

Thanks again, appreciate you taking the time and sharing your knowledge!

Re: Material Master Number Range challenge

Thanks for your help! How would you go about resetting the status to 0? I have looked through MMNR and can't seem to find a way there. Mostly because our range is "not initial".

Hmmm. Attempting to change the existing number range gives me this friendly informational message: Lower limit can only be changed during initial entry Message no.

Re: Material Master Number Range challenge

That sounds like a great solution, thanks so much.

So if I re-assign my FERTs from
500000 - 599999
to
601850 - 699999

this won't harm the existing "5" range? I will definitely test that.

Material Master Number Range challenge

We are running out of numbers in our 500000-599999 FERT material type number range. There are several options we have, the one I would like to use is to extend it into the 600000-699999 range. The challenge is that this new range has already been used for a few UNBW (non-valuated, stocked) material ...

STO table MDUB/EKUB

Creating a STO report based on MDUB, we noticed that many of the (older?) in-transit STOs are missing. Can anyone shed some light on how SAP determines or limits which STOs should show up in MDUB and which not? We want to display all STOs which have been delivered/pgi'd but not received. Thanks for ...

Re: Rounding Factors for consolidated purchasing

Yes, that could work. Would that take advantage of ME59? Thanks for all the suggestions, this gives me something to think about!

Re: Rounding Factors for consolidated purchasing

Ah, that is very limiting. We use ME21N to pull PReqs into POs. May just not be possible, even though it seems like centralized purchasing for multiple plants would be a fairly common scenario. Thanks so much for your help, as always!

Re: Rounding Factors for consolidated purchasing

Thanks again, yes, I am aware of that. I was wondering "if there is a user exit which kicks in when PReqs are added to a PO".

Re: Rounding Factors for consolidated purchasing

Thanks for all your help! Yes, I will need to deal with that error message since the PO qty > PR qty. No idea how to implement this though, do you know if there is a user exit which kicks in when PReqs are added to a PO?

Re: Rounding Factors for consolidated purchasing

Thank you for the link HT, very helpful. Perhaps what we are asking for is too difficult. Going through the different BAdI's and user exits there isn't something that seems to fit. Of course everything is possible with just enough ABAP, but I don't want to break MRP either. Perhaps I need to look at...

Re: Rounding Factors for consolidated purchasing

Yes, I think so, but for multiple plants combined, so that the purchasing agent doesn't end up ordering 3000 when only 1000 are needed. To clarify my example - Plant 1 needs 250 Plant 2 needs 400 Plant 3 needs 350 all 3 are rounded up to 1000 (rounding factor), so total ordered is 3000. But we reall...

Rounding Factors for consolidated purchasing

We often consolidate purchase requisitions for multiple plants into one purchase order. Is it possible to apply rounding factors to the consolidated lines in the PO? For example, we have a rounding factor of 1000 for a given material. We need a total of 1000 for 3 plants. Right now MRP creates 3 PRe...
