Auto STO Setup

I have a user who is trying to set up a back to back sales order/auto STO for the first time. Upon save, the Sales Order was placed on "DE - no STO" block and the STO would not create.

I made sure of the following settings...

Material Master was set to MRP type ZA in the trader plant (sales order plant)

Plant was set up as vendor

Source list was set up properly

Schedule line in the sales order defaulted properly to ZY

No credit block on the sales order

Three areas that might be of concern are:

All the documentation stated in the item category in the I/C sales order should be ZTAB. When we looked at the drop down box for ICat, there was no selection for ZTAB. Therefore, I would assume that this is not required.

The material also stated that the trader plant does not carry any inventory. When I looked at the material/plant combination in the sales order, and checked inventory, there was in fact stock. I am wondering if this could be the issue and how to solve it.

The receiving and supplying plant in the STO will be in the same company codes, and am wondering if this process does not work for Intra Company STOs, although I know we have done this process for intra-company before.

Thanks.
