3248739 - No alternative partner suggested for returns delivery of purchase order (VP119 error issued)


Returns delivery for purchase order does not suggest alternative partners.
Error message VP119 (There are no alternatives available for partner XY) is issued although several SP partner functions are maintained in the customer master of the related ship-to party.
It looks like the search for alternative roles only works if a role AG sold-to party exists in the delivery. However, for deliveries with reference to the purchase order there is no role AG, instead the alternative partner roles have to be searched by the ship-to party.
