E1: 32: Cannot Buy a Configured Stock Item from a Sales Order (Doc ID 1952396.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 16, 2015

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Configurator - Version 9.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

P4210 – Configured Sales Orders
P4310 – Configured Purchase Orders
P3201 – Configured Related Orders

Using Configurator module, the customers could order some configured items (SO) and within the configuration, some of the configured items could be produced internally (WO) and other could be purchased from different suppliers (OP).
JDE offers the option to direct ship the configured items (typically through SD / OD orders) but sometimes it is necessary to receive some of those purchased children in stock (for e.g. tests purposes) before shipping them to the final user.

Currently, there is no option in Configurator to place a purchase order directly at the sales order creation and have the PO receipt process done correctly (outside of the Transaction Type = 4 on a P rule).
Even if using a line type definition that has both ‘Inventory Interface’ flag and ‘Generate Purchase Order’ flag activated, the system is able to generate a related OP from the SO but the P3201 does not show this new OP number. During the PO Receipt (P4312), the configured purchased item can’t be received into stock, as the system triggers the error ID 013Z – ‘Configuration must be selected’.
However, the exact same setup works correctly for discrete item.
