Exclude interim Location from Sales Order availability

Hi all,

I need to exclude stock in 902 storage type from Sales order availability check.
I have read everything written on "storage location Control" in order to achieve this and understand the theory behind it all.
However, I have some questions about the logistics of actually implementing this approach.

Current setup:
-I have setup SLOC 4001 in plant 1139, WH 102, and ticked "do not copy storage location in TR"
-I have setup SLOC 4000 in plant 1139 WH 102 and defined it as the standard storage location (this is where we GR all our stock receipts at present, and where the availability check looks to)
-I have automatic TO creation in the foreground for 101 MVT
- I do not have cumulative posting changes set

Questions:

1) I have read that the first step is to "set up interim storage area 902 so that the system assigns the stock in this storage type to storage location 4001".
How do I do this? I haven't seen anywhere linking the storage type 902 to the SLOC

2) Is it standard SLOC 4000 that will show in MB51 Material Docs view under MVT 101, or will it be SLOC 4001?

3) Finally, is this something I have to implement across all materials in the WH? I have 2 materials, A and B. WH staff would prefer to keep GR SLOC 4000 for mat A if possible, and I don't mind if mat A in 902 is allocated to sales order. It is stopping Mat B that is the concern

Thank you so much for your help. I will of course << Text Removed >>

Hi Ruari,

Please find bellow the answer to your questions:

1) I have read that the first step is to "set up interim storage area 902 so that the system assigns the stock in this storage type to storage location 4001".

How do I do this? I haven't seen anywhere linking the storage type 902 to the SLOC

Answer: You need to do the assignment in customizing: Logistics Execution -> WM -> Interfaces -> IM -> Storage location control -> 2nd option in the list. This is the same customizing where you define combine posting changes and the IM movement type to be used for transfer posting between SLOC.

2) Is it standard SLOC 4000 that will show in MB51 Material Docs view under MVT 101, or will it be SLOC 4001?

Answer: In MB51 you will see the storage location 4001 linked to mvt 101, the very same you used for GR posting in MIGO.

3) Finally, is this something I have to implement across all materials in the WH? I have 2 materials, A and B. WH staff would prefer to keep GR SLOC 4000 for mat A if possible, and I don't mind if mat A in 902 is allocated to sales order. It is stopping Mat B that is the concern

Answer: The solution will only take into account SLOCs marked with the "don't copy SLOC in TR" flag. If you post GR directly in SLOC 4000, it will behave as usual.

Thank you so much Mauricio! Fantastic information.

One follow up if I may: I cannot understand exactly what the "combine posting changes" actually achieves and what its benefits are?

Thanks again!!

Hi Ruari,

The combine posting changes controls whether you want the system to post the transfer to the standard SLOC as soon as the TO is confirmed (not combined) or combine several posting changes in the same storage type and trigger the transfer posting manually (combine posting changes active). The manual posting is performed with transaction LQ01.

Thanks (yet again) Mauricio. Very clear. Think the "not combined" option appears far better in my scenario.

Thank you for all the help
