How to convert a Phantom Item to Inventory Item for incorrected operation?

Former Member

Our user made a mistake to setting an Item by 'Phantom Item', and finished 'Goods Receipt PO'.

Now, we found the QTY for this item in Inventory was not updated due to the above reason.

But we can not change the item status from 'Phantom' to 'Inventory'.

the error message was: Inventory Item status cannot be changed, due to the existence of either postings or documents [Message 3504-20]

pls help us to fix it. thanks.

It is too bad that you have created a document already with wrong type for this item. Unless you can restore your db to previous GRPO, you have no choice but to create a new item with right type.

Hi Wilson......

If you have not made AP Invoice then you can still create another GRN with New Inventory Item as there is no accounting effect gone because now it is not possible to convert Phantom Item to Inventory Item once any Transaction happens........
