Definition

Several IDocs are available for confirming a transfer order (TO) from the external system to the Warehouse Management system (WMS).

Note

The following only describes IDoc WMTOID03.

Use

Using these IDocs, you confirm transfer orders that have been executed to the WMS. Based on the confirmed data, the WMS confirms these TOs.

Prerequisite

You have defined which transfer orders require confirmation in the Customizing for Warehouse Management under Master Data ® Define Storage Type or Activities ® Transfers ® Define Movement Types. For more information, see Structure linkConfirming Transfer Orders.

When sending the TO data, the WMS first transferred the data which requires confirmation in IDoc WMTOID01 or WMTOID02 in segment E1LTROI with field KZQUI to the external system.

Recommendation

We recommend that you simulate sending a cancellation reply from the external system to the WMS, in order to test the relevant cancellation processes. Reports RLCATO00 and RLCATO10 are available for testing cancellation.

Confirming Storage Units

If you work with storage units (SUs) in the warehouse and you move the entire storage unit, you confirm one transfer order for the entire SU for this stock movement.

If a storage unit with mixed storage is involved and you move individual materials from it, there are several transfer orders for this storage unit. You confirm the corresponding transfer order for each stock movement.

If you determine that there are differences in the SU when you execute the TO, confirm the entire storage unit and enter the difference quantities for the items for which differences occurred.

Confirmation Without SU-Management

For stock removals, you normally confirm entire transfer orders.

For putaways, you can confirm TOs item by item if you put away several pallets with one TO.

If you confirm entire TOs, you can enter differences for individual TO items.

Confirming Performance Data

You confirm performance data (actual TO processing time) to the WMS via segment E1LTCOG. Normally, the WMS determines the planned TO processing time and adds to this the planned processing time reported by the external system.

You can also report the actual data to the WMS independently of the confirmation, by only sending segment E1LTCOG.

You can report actual data if the transfer order data was transferred to the external system with the value 2, 3, or 4 for indicator KZLEI in IDoc WMTOID01 or WMTOID02.

Depending on the value of indicator KISTZ in IDoc WMTOID01 or WMTOID02, you confirm the actual data in segment E1LTCOG as follows:

Confirming Differences

If you determine during a stock movement that a difference exists, transfer these references via IDoc WMTCID03 in segment E2LTCOI000, by filling the following fields:

Segment definition E2LTORH003 (TO header) (released as of SAP R/3 4.6C)

Field

Value

SQUIT

Blank

NISTA

Actual moved or removed quantity

NDIFA

Difference quantity of the stock movement: Difference between the quantity in the TO and the actual quantity moved

RISTA

Actual quantity of the return item if applicable

RDIFA

Difference quantity for return item

ALTME

Unit of measure to which the quantities refer (from the TO that was already send)

KZDIF

If you want to override the storage type and the storage bin to which the difference is posted

 

To confirm differences to the WMS, use case 3, 4, or 5.

Note

You must confirm the entire actual quantity of the relevant TO item. The following is valid for field VSOLM in structure E1LTORI:

VSOLM = NISTA + NDIFA + RISTA + RDIFA.

Confirmation for Zero Stock Check

For confirmation with zero stock check, use case 3 or 4.

For stock removal from a storage type with zero control, you must explicitly confirm the bin, which has become empty as a result of the confirmed stock movement.

If the indicator KZNKO was set for the stock movement in IDoc WMTOID01 or WMTOID02, IDoc WMTCID03 must confirm the zero stock check to the WMS in segment E1LTCOI.

If the storage bin is empty following the stock removal, set the indicator KZNUL in the IDoc.

If there is a remaining quantity in the storage bin, transfer the following fields in segment E1LTCOI:

Field

Value

KZNUL

Blank

PISTA

Remaining stock counted

The system issues any remaining stock found separately

ALTME

Unit of measure to which the quantities refer (from the TO that was already send)

 

Even if the zero stock check was not required, the external system can confirm the zero stock check to the WMS if the storage bin becomes empty as a result of the stock movement. In this case, the physical stock level differs from the stock level in the system. For this, you set indicator KZNKO in IDoc WMTCID02.

Confirming Batch-Managed Material

If, during goods movements, you confirm batch-managed material in SU-managed bulk storage or in a warehouse with lean WM, you transfer the batch number of the materials that have been removed with the confirmation data. To do this, you use field CHARG in segment E2LTCOI004 (confirm batch for lean WM or bulk storage).

Stock Overview in SU-Managed Bulk Storage

You confirm the storage units (SUs) that have been removed to the WMS along with the confirmation of the transfer order.

Confirm withdrawal of a complete SU

Field

Value

LENUM

Number of storage unit removed

VQUIT

X

Confirm withdrawal of the SU with difference and remaining quantity

Field

Value

LENUM

Number of storage unit removed

PICKM

Pick quantity

DIFFM

Difference quantity

RESTM

Remaining quantity

ALTME

Unit of measure upon which the quantities are based

When confirmation of the individual SUs is complete for a TO item, set the field BQUIT in segment E1LTCOI.

In this case, you confirm the TO item by item (see case 4). This means that there can be several TO items per confirmation. Only one confirmation is permitted per storage unit withdrawn.

Note

If a material with batch management is involved, you transfer the batch number along with the confirmation data. To do this, you use field CHARG in segment E2LTCOI004 (confirm batch for lean WM or bulk storage).

Confirmation in Bulk Storage with Mixed Storage

If you confirm transfer orders for a bulk storage type with mixed storage, you must transfer the quant data to the WMS for the material that has been moved. The WMS can only confirm the transfer order if the goods movement is clearly assigned to certain quants.

Special Features of Confirmation for Lean WM

If you use lean WM, we recommend confirming the quant number to the WMS, since no quant data is known in a warehouse with lean WM.

You transfer the batch number of a batch-managed material with the confirmation data via field CHARG in segment E2LTCOI004.

If you use handling units, field PAPOS, along with TAPOS, serves as a pointer to the HU data records that belong to the TO item in table T_LTAP_CONF_HU.

Structure

Message Type

You define message type WMTOCO for the inbound partner profile.
