MB1B (transfer storage location) issue

Hi, SAP expert!

Please help!

Here is the scenerio:

I have 10 units stock of material code abc123 in plant of Sloc A (browse via MMBE). The ATP qty of material abc123 is also 10 units in the same plant of Sloc A (browse via CO09).

Then, I create a sales order via VA01 for 10 units of material abc123 of Sloc A. I check the item shecdule line and it has 10 units confirm qty also. Subsequently, the ATP qty becomes 0 units.

Then, I create a stock transfer of 5 units of material code abc123 from Sloc A to Sloc B via MB1B of mvt 311. Surprisingly, the system allows me to perform the transaction of MB1B of transferring 5 units of material abc123 from Sloc A to Sloc B though the item schedule line confirmed qty is 10 units in my sales order.

I want system to check the ATP qty for available stock before MB1B takes place. In this situation, the ATP for material abc123 is 0 units and therefore, stock transfer from Sloc A to Sloc B should NOT allow to take place and an error message should have come up. How can I configure this in SAP?

Thanks very much for your advice in advance.

Regards,
Jessica

You will have to set up in 'Dynamic Availability Check' for your related movement type so that if the stock availability is ZERO (due to previous committed/hard reservation), then you can't be able to post your stock transfer/stock issue.

Transcation code OMCP to setup dynamic availability check.

Hi,

is your business process make to stock (MtS) or make to order (MtO)? If MtO you can put the stock into special stock (E) by assigning it to your sales order.
