3389502 - Error 'Enter the date of Production' occurs when posting goods receipt in 'Change Inbound Deliveries' App


Error 'Enter the date of Production' (Message no. 12019) occurs when trying to post goods receipt in 'Change Inbound Deliveries' app in the EWM side.




Missing Posting date that is the same as the date of production.


You can enter a total shelf life in the Manage Product Master Data APP so the system took the posting date as the date of production. When you enter the total shelf life, the system assumes that the date entered upon goods receipt is the material's date of production. It then calculates a shelf life expiration date from the date of production plus the total shelf life. 

In addition, in case you maintain a value in the field "Min. Rem. Shelf Life" in the material master, you must enter a date at the goods receipt because the system wants to check if the date corresponds to the Minimum Remaining Shelf Life value.  If you do not want to enter a date at goods receipt you need to clear this field in the material master.
