QM Notification: defect quantity not updated correctly

Hi all,

Recently I have noticed an issue with Quality Notification, when I create a Notification from defect recording, I enter values in the DefectiveQty (external) and DefectiveQty(internal) fields within the Items view, these two quantities are updated respectively in the "Additional Data 1" view. However, when I added another item with internal and external defective quantity, it does not update the "Additional Data 1" view.

the internal and external defect quantity are equal to item 1, it does not include item 2.

Can anybody tell me is this SAP standard function?

Hi Danny,

Yes, It seems it is a Standard functionality. It is programmed in a way that,

when you enter Defective Quantity (internal) in "items" then system will check if Def. qty (int.) is blank at Header or not. If it is blank it will update Defective Quantity (internal) from items to Def. qty (int.) at header. It is a header data, it applies to all items.

& if it is not Blank then system simply throws warning message like

Incorrect internal qty Item 0002 exceeds incorrect internal qty for hdr:

It is not programmed in a way that it will add Item 002 defective quantity (internal) to Header.

You can change header quantities and then continue adding items.

If quantity at Header is 20, then system will allow you to enter Defective Quantity (internal) upto 20 for all items. Means you can enter Defective Quantity (internal) as 20 for Items 0001, 0002, 0003 etc.

Same applies for External.
