Changing the Destination Storage Bin During WT Confirmation – Using Exception Code in SAP EWM

In EWM, the destination bin may have to be changed while WT confirmation due to various reason. This can be achieved using Exception code. SAP has provided standard exception code CHBD.

Define Exception Code:

Path: SPRO: IMG -> SAP EWM -> EWM-> Cross-Process Settings -> Exception Handling -> Define Exception Codes

Click on the node: Create Exception Code and create an exception code CHBD or you can copy the standard exception code CHBD to your warehouse.

By selecting the exception code CHBD then click on Node: Define Exception Code.

Here, the Business Context should be TPT Confirm Warehouse Task (Put away) as we want to change the destination bin during putaway WT confirmation.

We also have other business contexts as below,

TIM Confirm Warehouse Task (Internal Movement) for changing the destination bin during internal movement WT confirmation and

TPI Confirm Warehouse Task (Stock Removal) for changing the destination bin during stock removal WT confirmation.

Also we should use the following Execution Step according to the requirement.

01 – Desktop HU Warehouse Task – If we want to change the bin in desktop environment for HU WT

02 – Desktop Product Warehouse Task – If we want to change the bin in desktop environment for Product WT

04 – RF HU Whse Task Action on Target Data – If we want to change the bin in RF environment for HU WT

06 – RF Product WT Action on Target Data – If we want to change the bin in RF environment for Product WT

Here, we are going to see both Desktop Product WT and RF Product WT confirmation. So execution step 02 and 06 to be configured.

Then select the 1st entry and click on the Node : Maintain Process Parameters and in the next page, you need to enter the Internal Process Code as CHBD.

Repeat the same for 2nd entry.

Once the above settings is done, now we can proceed in using it during WT confirmation to change the destination bin.

Scenario 1:  Destination Bin Change in Desktop During Product WT Confirmation

Go to WT confirmation screen as shown below,

Then switch to FORM view to display the WT details.

Now click on “Confirm in Foreground”. So that destination storage bin will be editable. Then change the destination bin from SBIN-Z010-001 to SBIN-Z010-002.

If we click on save then we will get the below error:

As we can change the destination storage bin only by entering the exception code, please enter the defined exception code and click on SAVE.

Once we saved after entering the exception code CHBD, WT will be confirmed.

Scenario 2:  Destination Bin Change in RF During Product WT Confirmation.

Login to RF and access the WO to confirm.

Press enter. Then in the next screen, confirm the Source Data.

Press Enter. Confirm the product and destination quantity data and enter the exception code CHBD in the Shortcut field.

Press enter and in the next screen, system will ask us to enter the new destination bin.

As shown above, enter the actual destination bin and press enter. So that task will be confirmed.

      Thanks for detailed information on the same

      Can we somehow change the source data:

      Source HU/BIN ?
      Do we have an exception code for the same ?

      Hi Amit,

      The source details of a Warehouse Task (any Task) can never be changed - The BIN and Stock ID (Product, Stock Type, Owner, Batch, and others..)

      The only way is to cancel the current task and create a new one.

      I was thinking... if by using follow-On functions on CHBD exception code we can actually trigger a new bin proposal rather than manual interaction...

      meaning when the next RF screen is shown to the user it comes with a new bin determined in the field destination bin.

      Have any of you know if this is possible using only standard?.

      From memory, there is a function key in the 'new bin' screen to trigger an automatic bin determination instead of having to manually enter the bin.

      Hello TM GFG,

      Which function key is that? How this can be activated - an automatic bin determination using CHBD exception code?
