You want to use Product specification without Batch Management (Identified Stock ID).


Product version: SAP Business ByDesign 2305

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Material.
  2. Select the Identified Stock Type for this Material as: "03 - Optional Specified Stock".
  3. Create a Product Specification and assign to the Material.
  4. Create a Purchase Order and try to perform Goods Receipt against.
  5. Now you try to confirm the Goods Receipt without maintaining the Identified Stock ID like to enter the Product specification without .


The identified stock is optional only if there is no Product Specification. In this case, a product specification is used, hence the identified stock becomes mandatory.


You have to maintain the Batch Number. It  is MANDATORY to maintain the Identified Stock ID when you are using Product Specification.
