Return PO delivery creation error for AFS materials
User is trying to return AFS material to vendor using return PO with delivery. PO is created and outbound delivery is created using VL10B then that delivery is deleted and when user is trying to create another delivery for same PO, system was showing ABAP dump. Material used in this case is AFS – Batch Managed material.
AFS materials are returned to vendor using return PO with delivery. These materials are batch managed. Since these materials are AFS materials, so different grids with different quantities, different batches are maintained in return PO (Depending on whatever quantity to be returned). Outbound delivery is created through VL10B and then PGI.
When outbound delivery is created against AFS material return PO then AFS table J_3ABDBS is getting updated with line item. But if we delete that delivery then J_3ABDBS not getting updated correctly. This is causing ABAP dump while creating delivery again using VL10B.
After creating delivery; table J_3ABDBS gets updated as below
When delivery is deleted table J_3ABDBS was not getting updated correctly. Entries were remaining in table even after deletion. This was causing problem.
This incorrect table entries causing ABAP dump while creating new delivery for same return PO. Same ABAP dump is getting displayed if we try to check Delivery schedule where different grid values are maintained in one line item of PO.
New delivery can be created using transaction VL10D but system will not distribute the quantity correctly and also PGI can’t be posted for that delivery.
PGI Error message – 8J-182
1. Maintain Automatic Deallocation configuration for AFS specific delivery type. System will deallocate schedule lines of return PO after delivery deletion.
2. Install SAP note 2206134 – Allocations not completely deleted when deleting return delivery in VL02N. This will correct the problem of J_3ABDBS table update.
