Trying to Transact Material Reserved to a Batch Gives Error, "Transaction quantity must be less than or equal to available quantity" (Doc ID 2891855.1)

Last updated on MARCH 28, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Process Manufacturing Process Execution - Version 12.2.9 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When opening the Material Transactions screen for an ingredient with a reservation, and the reservation details populate on the screen,
the following error immediately displays. After clicking OK, the fields clear, and after entering the data again and clicking Transact the same error appears.

Transaction quantity must be less than or equal to available quantity.

Since the material is already reserved to the batch, it should be able to be transacted.

Sometimes a Caution appears instead,

APP-INV-05407: Quantity will drive inventory negative

and after clicking OK the user is able to transact.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Retrieve a batch that has a detailed reservation on the Batch Details form (Production Supervisor responsibility > Batch Details)
2. On Batch Details click the Transact Material button
3. The Material Transactions screen comes up and the error displays


The customer says the problem started after applying <patch 33594818:R12.INV.C> and <patch 33590387:R12.GME.C>
