Say you have created the sales order on <b>"08/10/2007"</b> and system had given material availability date as <b>"15/10/2007"</b>. Now say today on <b>"11/10/2007"</b> the material has come in stock.

Now say you want to deliver the material today and if you go to <b>"VL01N"</b> then the system will not allow you to create the delivery as the system has not been able to determine a schedule line for today's date.

<b>Do the following:</b>

1. Go to <b>VA02</b> - select the sales order number - double click on the line item - go to schedule lines - click on the item - on top there is <b>"icon"</b> for <b>"item availability"</b> or press <b>"ctrl+F5"</b> - click on this - now if the item is available then the system will show todays date in the <b>"complete delivery"</b> section. Click on the green button and you will see the change in the schedule line of the line item. Say the order was created for <b>"10"</b> pc and the system had created 2 schedule lines for <b>"08/10/2007"</b> confirmed qty is <b>"zero"</b> & <b>"15/10/2007"</b> with confirmed qty as <b>"10"</b> pc. Now after running the availability check the system will change the schedule lines to <b>"08/10/2007"</b> with confirmed qty as <b>"zero"</b> & <b>"11/10/2007"</b> with confirmed qty as <b>"10"</b>.

Now go and create the delivery in <b>VL01N</b>.


1. If you are using make to stock then the availability check will confirm the material directly for the sales order line item.

2. If you are using make to order then in <b>"MB1C"</b> you will have to assign the stock of <b>"10"</b> pc with special stock indicator <b>"E"</b> for that sales order number & line item. Now the system will show the stock in the sales order.

Reward points if solution helps.
