Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales Orders work center.
  2. Select the Sales Orders view.
  3. Search for the ID ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Sales Order).
  4. Click Edit button.
  5. Navigate to the Items tab.
  6. Click Add Row button.

Error message: Item XX: Adding Material items for b2b Sales Order is not allowed (XX represents the line item ID).


The Sales Order you are trying to add the new item is a A2A order, meaning, it belongs to an Intercompany scenario between Purchase Order and Sales Order.

For intercompany Sales Orders, the items always flows from the Purchase Order.


This is the system expected behavior.
