Storage type without negative stock - which stock

Post by erpvragen » Fri Nov 21, 2014 8:18 am

Dear all,

In customizing we have maintained a storage type in such a way it should not allow negative stock (negative stock check box is NOT ticked).

My question is:
To which stock does this 'negative' stock refer? Total stock, available stock, both, ...?
And where can I check this.

Reason for asking is: although the stock type is customized not to allow negative stock, sometimes it happens that the system does allow negative stock. This is negative available stock, total stock is still positive. (stock to be removed >0 in this case).

Thank you for your thoughts!

I don't think SAP should be allowing either total or available quantity to go negative in any bin if the storage type doesn't permit this.
SAP should not be letting you set up a TO out of a bin for greater than the available quantity.
Neither should it let you "over-confirm" with difference indicator pointing back to source bin to result in available qty going negative.

Do you know the circumstance under which available quantity goes negative?
