Error during Material CIFing

Hi All,

i have an issue, wherein i am not able to CIF materials. .

let me tell you the exact B/ground for this situation.

We wanted to CIF a new Distribution Centre (DC) from R/3 to APO.

We made the necessary settings in R/3 Spro, wherein we have maintained the new Depot as location type (DC). but while CIFing the same location with the help of Location Master Integration Model, this location came in as a Production Plant and not as a DC.

Now after that, when we tried to CIF material master for this location from R/3, we received the following error: Location does not exist for external location XXXX i002 type BSG

i guess this would be because of the discripancy in the location type of APO (Plant) and R/3 (DC).

Please let me knw ur inputs and valuable comments on the same.. .

Hi Prasad ,

You say that when you initially tried to CIF the location , it came in to APO with type production plant instead of 1002. But i think the location must have already been there with type production plant . So delete the location in APO , check you SPRO (assignment of node type DC - you said you have already done this , but just double check) and then execute location CIF again . After the location gets created with type DC , execute your material CIF

Shortcut fix use report /SAPAPO/CHECK_LOCATION_TYPE to change the location type in APO directly and then CIF remaining master data.

Check APO table /SAPAPO/LOCMAP to see the current location type in system.
