'Items With Excess Inventory' Exception Messages Not Generated In JDE-VCP (Doc ID 2177630.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 30, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Value Chain Planning Integration Base Pack - Version 2.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This issue is related to the JDE to VCP integration data flow.

"Items With Excess Inventory" Exception Messages are not generated in VCP.

You have a constrained EDD plan in the VCP environment.

No "Items With Excess Inventory" exception messages are generated even though you have excess situations.
This is because of the mapping in the JDE to VCP integration where the column EXCESS_QUANTITY from table MSC_SYSTEM_ITEMS is always updated as Null.

Is this supposed to always be updated as null?
Is there a known fix for this or does a workaround exist where we can populate the EXCESS_QUANTITY so that we can get the "Items With Excess Inventory" exception messages?
