Error: "Goods receipt for inbound delivery is not allowed in AD Subcontracting"

If you have any idea/suggestion please let me know. Thank you.

This error message occurs when you are trying to perform a goods receipt for an inbound delivery in the subcontracting scenario and the system does not allow it. It would be very beneficial to receive more information from you. Did you make any GR previously for this vendor/material?

You need to check the following:

  1. Make sure that the subcontracting process is correctly set up in the Material Master record of the component material.

  2. Ensure that the delivery type is correctly set up in the inbound delivery document. For example, the delivery type should be set as "Subcontracting".

  3. Ensure that the subcontracting info record exists and is maintained correctly.

  4. Check if all the required fields are filled in the inbound delivery document, such as the delivery date, delivery quantity, and delivery item number.

  5. Check the configuration settings for the subcontracting process to make sure that the goods receipt for inbound deliveries is allowed in the subcontracting scenario.

  6. Pls check SAP NOTE 352243.
