Incorrect Quantities in custom analytical query

0 Kudos


I have created a query that displays a lot of SD information (sales order, outbound delivery, billing document etc.). However, the query does report the incorrect sales order quantities and outbound delivery quantities. See screenshot below.

I used the following fields/elements in the query: I_SalesOrderItemCube.OrderQuantity and _I_OutboundDeliveryItem.ActualDeliveryQuantity. 

What is going on here? Can someone offer any help and/or solution?

Kind regards,

Hello Floyd,

I don't see Sales Order & Item Number in your screen shots. I would suggest you to focus one one a few specific Sales Order & Item Numbers examples and compare with the SAP S/4HANA system if you have access it.

I don't see any information about association _I_OutboundDeliveryItem here in Sales Order Item - Cube 

With Sales Orders and Outbound Deliveries there might be (1) partial delivery scenario - one sales order item can have multiple delivery items  (2) Deleted, canceled sales orders, items & delivery, items scenario

These two scenarios above should be considered. The partial delivery scenario will cause your sales order items measures double! 

Hope the information helps.

Hello @TuncayKaraca,

Thank you for your quick reply. The above screenshots are from one sales order.

The CDS views I_OutboundDeliveryItem and I_SalesOrderItemCube have a Join Condition on the fields:

Furthermore, I check and there are no partial deliveries. Every individual sales order item is in the same delivery (e.g. all items from line 30 are in one delivery).

I see that some changes were made to the sales orders, but I do not understand how that could affect the sales order quantity in the query.

Lastly, why are sales order item measures doubled when there is a partial delivery? Is this a big from SAP?

I just want to see the quantity that is in my sales order to be displayed in my query.
