Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supply Chain Design Master Data work center. 
  2. Select Locations view. 
  3. Search for Location XXX. 
  4. Select Location XXX. 
  5. Click Edit. 
  6. Uncheck the box Storage Location. 
  7. You receive the error:

Change storage-location-indicator not possible; location not empty


It is not possible to uncheck the Storage Location indicator once it is set. If ever there was stock in the past in that Location or Logistics Areas under that Location, it cannot be unset again.


As the uncheck is not possible, the system is working as expected.
