QM Open Note – #2 – SPCO status and QALS table relation
QM Open Note
QM Open Note is a blog post series about topics, which can be useful when working with Quality Management.
Current blog post is about the relation between the status SPCO (Stock posting completed) of an inspection lot and table QALS.
After complete stock posting for an inspection lot – for example via transaction QA11 or QA12 – the status SPCO (I0220 – Stock posting completed) is activated for the inspection lot object. It can be seen in table JEST via transaction SE16 using the object number (QALS-OBJNR) of the inspection lot.
The fact of completely posting the stock for the lot is stored in table QALS also, in field QALS-STAT34. ‘QALS-STAT34 = X’ means that the inspection lot has no more quantity to be posted; QALS-LMENGEZUB (Quantity That Must Be Posted) is normally zero in this case.
Known problem & solution
Sometimes the flag QALS-STAT34 is not set, even the system status ‘SPCO’ is active for the lot and quantity to be posted equals zero (QALS-LMENGEZUB). Following SAP Note provides a correction report for this type of inconsistency:
321012 – ‘Insp. lot:inconsistency between lot & status managt’
An other case is, when the system status ‘SPCO’ is not set (neither QALS-STAT34), although the quantity to be posted equals zero (QALS-LMENGEZUB). Following SAP Note provides a correction report for this type of inconsistency:
436386 – Status ‘Stock posting completed’
