Error in Conversion of Planned order to Production order


When I am converting planned order to production order I am getting error

"Planned order 234144 is not to be converted

Message no. CO041


You tried to convert a planned order in which the conversion indicator has not been set.

System Response

The system does not convert the planned order.


Set the conversion indicator (detail screen, make-to-stock production) in the planned order 234144."

So I went to MD12 and activated the conversion indicator. And when I try to convert to PO in CO40 I am getting the below error

You cannot make an assignment to make-to-order stock

Message no. CO684


The component cannot be allocated to an individual stock because make-to-order production and engineer-to-order production cannot be executed with this order.

A possible cause is that you are trying to create an order with reference to a sales-order/project, where an account assignment to a sales order/project is not allowed in the settlement profile that is assigned to the chosen order type. This is inconsistant.

System Response

The following responses are possible:

Order processing is cancelled.

The system resets the special stock indicator back to the original value.


Choose another order type.

So is it like every time I have to go to MD12 for every planned order to be converted to PO and activate the conversion indicator.??

Please teach me the reasond above the two errors.

Hi Uday,

To check the BOM release, go to CS02- Change BOM transaction. Go to Header level and check the BOM status under Quants/Long text view in Validity tab.

Also if you are using REM then Mr. Mangalraj is correct.

For checking the stretagy, You go to MM02 - Change Matrerial master transaction. Go to MRP3 view and chec the Streatgy group. If its MAke to oder then you have to create planned order for sales order. And if you don't want to use MAke to order scanario and yours is MAke to stock scenario then sue strategy related Make to order such as 10, 40 etc....

Also refer the below link. This will be very useful for you as a beginer.
