When Using Select Available Inventory Form to Create a WIP Issue, an Incorrect "APP-INV-05443: Negative Balances Not Allowed" Error is Displayed Despite Having Sufficient Inventory (Doc ID 2821982.1)

Last updated on MAY 19, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Process Manufacturing Process Execution - Version 12.2.8 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.2.8 version, Batches

Customer just upgraded from 12.1.3 to 12.2.8.
At first users were having a problem in which they would get a "Negative balances not allowed" error whenever were doing a Correction on a WIP Issue and trying to navigate to the Lot/Serial screen.
Applying patch 32315716:R12.GME.C resolved this problem. However, it has caused another problem.

Now, when using Select Available Inventory (SAI) to do a WIP Issue, users are getting "APP-INV-05443: Negative balances not allowed" almost every time they try to transact, even though there is sufficient available inventory.
If Select Available Inventory is not used and instead the data is entered directly on batch Material Transactions, or the user drills to Lot/Serial to enter the lot number, the transaction goes through correctly.

When trying to transact a quantity slightly smaller than the available quantity the error is still displayed, but if a much smaller quantity is transacted the error does not occur.

APP-INV-05443: Negative balances not allowed

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Production Supervisor > Batch Details > Transact Material > Select Available Inventory, enter quantity, click OK.

Not that another customer reported a slightly different issue in which material was reserved to the batch, and when they tried to transact it they got the error:

APP-INV-05407- Quantity will drive inventory negative

This issue was resolved by applying the same patch as described below, 33059591:R12.INV.C.


 Upgraded from 12.1.3 to 12.2.8 and applied patch 32315716:R12.GME.C.
