I had the same problem. I loaded several PTF's recently so I'm not sure
which one fixed the problem.

subject: [MAPICS-L] OUTSIDE OPERATIONS RECEIVING

ALL



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
record.



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



Any insight will be helpful.

Kevin,

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.

Kevin,

You have described almost exactly how we do it here, the service item is
set up as a purchased item type inventory code of service. We do not have
an item balance for the service item, and we generate the PO's through the
automated Outside process in PCC. The interesting part is, when we receive
the PO item we do an RD , RP leave the location blank but do not get any
errors or the location Record. If you would like to talk about it further
offline give a call.
