Negative Qty in Pick and Pack Manager

Hi all, I've the following problem with SBO 2005A, is there someone who can help me?

I need to print pick lists even if "qty available to release" is less than the open qty.

Scenario is when I have to provide information to the wherehouse about sales order to prepare with goods already arrived but not yet registered in Sap.

In other words: in the morning I receive goods from my supplier, in the late morning I must issue sales orders. I would need to print pick lists before acquiring goods (in Sap).

Problem is that Sap checks available qty without considering Purchase Orders.

example is:

regarding article ABC

qty in stock = 4

qty in a PO = 100 (delivery date today)

qty in a Sales Order = 30 (delivery date tomorrow)

I would like to print a pick list with qty 30. Total available could be 74 (100+4 -30) or -26, it doesn't matter.

At the moment the answer I have when I try to "allocate" 30 pieces in Pick and Pack Manager screen is "Released

quantity exceedes available quantity [message 81-13]

Is there a way to make it working as I want?

Thanks in advance

You can still use the Sales Order, but modify the Pick list PLD and instead of printing the Order Quantity (which shows the original qty), please print Remaining Open Quantity field (which shows the back order quantity).

Let me know if you have questions.
