• Subject: ITEM MASTER MAINTENANCE (INV100)

I HAVE A "NEW" SITUATION, THAT I WONDER IF ANYONE ELSE HAS EXPERIENCED.

I ROUTINELY GO INTO INV100 AND MAKE COMPONENTS "INACTIVE" FOR VARIOUS
REASONS.  IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, IT WAS BECAUSE MARKETING CHANGED THEIR
MIND AND THE PART WON'T BE NEEDED.  NO HISTORY EXISTS.  ITEM WAS PURCHASED,
BUT NEVER RECEIVED, AND PURCHASE ORDER WAS CLOSED.

I ALWAYS EXPERIENCE A HIERARCHY OF ITEMS THAT MUST BE DEALT WITH BEFORE THE
ITEM CAN BE MADE INACTIVE.

QMS105 - ITEM/MANUFACTURER RELATIONSHIP

SFC510 - IF PLANNED ORDERS EXIST, MUST BE DELETED.

BOM500 - ITEM ON A BOM OR ITEM HAS A BOM

SFC100 - ITEM HAS A ROUTING (NOT THE CASE THIS TIME AS WE ARE DEALING WITH A
COMPONENT)

CST100 - ITEM HAS COSTS

THEN, WHEN I SUCCESSFULLY DEAL WITH EACH PROGRAM, I AM ABLE TO MAKE THE ITEM
INACTIVE.

NOW, ALL OF A SUDDEN, I GET MESSAGE "ITEM ON A FORECAST".  THE ITEM IS A
COMPONENT, DOES NOT HAVE A FORECAST, AND WE ARE NOT EVEN USING THE
FORECASTING MODULE (WE ARE ENTERING FORECAST INTO MRP 100 FOR FINISHED GOODS
ONLY).

HAS ANYONE EXPERIENCED THIS?  DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT EVENT COULD
HAVE CAUSED THIS TO HAPPEN ALL OF A SUDDEN?
