3059968 - "Specify the correct lower-level HU" error message during picking WT confirmation


  • When confirming a picking warehouse task through apps "Run Outbound Process" or "Confirm Warehouse Tasks", you get the following error message:
    Specify the correct lower-level HU
    Message no. /SCWM/L3696


  • S/4HANA Cloud Warehouse Management 


  • The warehouse task is created for the higher level HU.
  • Standard behavior, the lower-level HU is not proposed as source HU.


  • In nested HU pick scenario, you may only confirm the warehouse task through apps "Run Outbound Process" or "Confirm Warehouse Task" in case you pick the full quantity of a homogeneous HU (no mixed stock). In this case, you will pick both the higher-level and lower-lever HUs. Otherwise, you need to specify the lower-level HU in which the stock is located during the warehouse task confirmation through app "Confirm Warehouse Tasks - Advanced":
    1. Find the warehouse task in app "Confirm Warehouse Tasks - Advanced"
    2. Click "Confirm in Foreground"
    3. Change the "Source HU" field from higher-level HU to the lower-level HU and save
