E1: 42: Sales Order P4210 Is Going in Product Allocation Hold (PA) Even If the Item Is Future Committed (Doc ID 2591500.1)

Last updated on JUNE 14, 2021

Applies to:

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


The sales order (P42101) goes in PA (Product Allocation Hold) even if the item is Future Committed bucket.

  Steps to replicate :

  1. Set Specific Commitment Days = 75 for Branch in P41001 Branch/Plant Constants.
  2. In the processing options of P4210, activate Preference processing (tab 10-Preference, 1. Preference Profile Processing = 1 ) and define the version pf R40400 being called from P4210 version tab as follows to trigger the Product Allocation preference.
  3. In the processing options of P4210 , tab Order Holds , set 7. Product Allocation Hold = PA .
  4. Set the version above of P4210, to be called by P42101 Sales order entry power form.
  5. In Product Allocation Profiles (P40307), add for an item only the Product allocation preference with Quantity Limit = 5.
  6. Enter a sales order (P42101) for the item above , with a Promised Delivery Date over than 75 days out from today and quantity = 10 ea more than Quantity Limit.
  7. Even the system displays the two warnings (<Product Allocation Preference Error> with Error id 3870 and < Line 1 will go on the following holds: PA - Product Allocation Hold>with Error ID E42B3), go further and Save the sales order .
  8. Note that the Sales Order goes on PA Hold even if the item goes into Future commitment bucket.
  9. The item also goes into Future commitment bucket.

As the item is going into the Future commitment bucket, the sales order should not go on PA Hold.

The problem this causes is that it consumes the product allocation so that any SO lines added within the Future commitment window then go on hold when they should not. Sales order lines should only go on PA Hold when Promised Delivery Date < Today + Future Commit days.
