Putaway Strategy I: addition to existing stock
I've set the storage type search sequence C01 as follows:
1st storage type: H01: (putaway strategy: I, mixed storage; addition to existing stock; capacity check method: 4)
2nd storage type: J01: (putaway storage type: C: open storage)
But the problem is, when I perform GR, there's enough space in the bins under storage type H01, but the system suggests me to put the material to open storage J01. What's the problem?

SAP clearly explains in the help.sap.com:
If the system cannot find a storage bin with the same material or the capacity of the storage bin will not allow additional quants to be stored, the system switches to the "next empty bin" strategy, that is, it searches for the next available empty storage bin.
There is no step to search first for spaces in occupied bins.
IF you want it the way you described then you have to do some programming in the user exits.
