query of stock transfer order

Hi experts

I created a cross-company stock transfer order. I use the standard po type.

after creating the po. I use vl10b to create outbound deliver. no issue this step

then I met problem when doing post goods issue. system gave the error message as following

Purchase order 4500000123 does not contain items for a stock transfer

Message no. M7153


The system did not find any item for a stock transfer in purchase order 4500000123.

Possible causes of error:

You have entered the wrong purchase order number.

The purchase order you have entered is not a stock transport order and the item category of the purchase order items is not U.

The purchase order you have entered is not a standard purchase order for cross-company-code stock transfers.

You can only post goods issues for stock transport orders belonging to this order type in the Sales and Distribution system (SD). You cannot enter the goods issue in Inventory Management.


Check whether your input is correct.

Check whether the purchase order is a stock transport order with item type U or a inter-company-code stock transfer.

Perform function

If you have authorization, check in Customizing for Purchasing whether goods issues for stock transport orders in the plant with this purchasing document type are to be posted in the Shipping system or in Inventory Management. If a delivery type has been entered in the Customizing table, the goods issue takes place in the Shipping system.

In Customizing, choose:

Materials Management -> Purchasing -> Purchase Order -> Set Up Stock Transport Order.

could anyone give some suggestion?

thank you

check in the same node at customising whether you have assigned a document type for issuing plant(also whether its one step or two step) and also you have to assign a delivery typr for your issuing plant (NLCC).

you have to asssign a customer master in the receiving plant shipping data and sales area details for your issuing plant.
