    • You cannot save and create the warehouse request. Enter the required data first. For more information, see the subsequent error messages.


When Inbound delivery notifications are created in the ByD system, their ID is saved in capital letters. You have created the Delivery Notifications with lower case letters and as a result, the document is inconsistent.


Please make sure however you create the Delivery Notifications (via add-on or web service) that the ID of the inbound delivery notifications are updated in capital letters and not in small letters.
