Backorder qty allocation
The system is set up to confirm "0" qty if there is no stock at the time of order creation. When there is new receipts, the stock is not confirmed automatically (even for sales order stock = special stock E).
Is there a program that could be run to allocate new stock / redetermine availability check automatically?
Any input would be rewarded with points. Thanks.

Stock will not confirm automatically. For this, you have to do rescheduling.
When you reschedule (transaction <b>V_V2</b>), orders that contain items determined in product selection are reevaluated. If the substitution settings have changed, or there is more product available, the system may determine other substitutes. This may result in products being promised to the customer other than those agreed to at the time of order entry. To avoid this, you can set the fixed date and qty indicator in the order (choose Goto --> Item --> Schedule lines). The system will not take the order account when rescheduling.
Items determined in product selection are only considered in a rescheduling run when you have set the input parameters to include all materials. If you specify only certain materials, main and sub-items from product selection are excluded.
The fixed date and quantity indicator does not influence product selection in the delivery.
If a product selection item has been partially delivered, the system does not take it into account in rescheduling runs.
