RE:[sap-log-sd] System does not Create Delivery Item: Message VL248

Hi Tiger,

I find hisec's post a good one! :)

On a general note -

1. "I am not an SD guy" : If you are an end user, but putting the cursor in a field (e.g. "Selection date") and then pressing F1; you can read SAP Help, thereby you can get an idea about the way how the logic pertaining to that field works.

2. Selection date -
VL01N is for creating deliveries. The purpose of creating a delivery is to deliver the goods to the customers. The delivery process starts with the "Availability of material". Thus if there is NO material then delivery should NOT be made for that sales order.

With the help of Selection date, user and SAP creates delivery note ONLY if material is ALREADY available OR
Selection date is after Material availability date

Material availability date = 01 - Jan - 2012
If selection date = 12-Jan-2012
Then delivery can be created

Material availability date = 01 - Jan - 2012
If selection date = 12- Dec-2011
Then delivery can NOT be created & user shall get the message you got.

For material availability date -
Go to VA03, item level, tab Schedule lines
Button Shipping, there you can see "Mat. availability date".

ps - there is also Transportation planning date, but i have not mentioned it to keep the concept simple.

For outbound delivery just try it for future date around 7 days.
Or check the schedule line for your order that what date the delivery is
and enter the same date in vl01n.
