2872189 - QE181: Characteristic results cannot be recorded... - Lot status is REL and characteristics are assigned


In transaction QE01 or QA32 the results recording is not allowed for inspection lot, as following error is raised:

"Characteristic results cannot be recorded for inspection lot 010000162001

Message no. QE181


You cannot record any characteristic results for this inspection lot. The material master has been set up for the existing inspection type in such a way that results recording is not supported.


Confirm defects for this inspection lot or select another inspection lot in which you can confirm the characteristic results."


System response is unexpected, as lot status is released (I0002 - REL) and inspection characteristics exist for the lot as well.
