We used that, and our set up was identical to yours EXCEPT we made the outside operation item an inventory item, not a service item. We had no problems with the process with that defined. We let the on-hands increase then periodically purged them. Not ideal, but it worked.

Is anyone using the Outside Operations feature within PCC (added with a PTF
at release 6)? If so, how do you execute receiving?

We are receiving in a controlled warehouse that does not allow negative on
hand quantity. We must receive using an RP (RD and RI are not permitted).
This is a code limitation not a user defined selection. The item being
received is a service item (Inventory Code). I.E. PLATING. The service
item by definition does not have and is not permitted to have an Item
Balance (Item Warehouse) record. So when the RP is transacted with the
correct quantity, a location field is being required. Leaving the location
field blank results in a hard error on the attempted transaction. Because
there is a location recorded with the transition, the system creates a
location record (SLQNTY). This is incorrect as there is no Item Balance

Our question, how do you receive a service item on a PO without creating a
location record?

Any insight will be helpful.
