3450772 - Blocked Material can be used in New Purchase Order


You have changed the status of a Material to "Blocked" but you can still use it in a new Purchase Order 


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

You are changing the status of a Material ABC as per below:

  1. Work Center Product Portfolio 
  2. By Materials view
  3. Search, Open and View All the material ID ABC (ABC being an example).
  4. Go to Purchasing.
  5. Change the status from Active to Blocked & Saved

Now you are creating a new Purchase Order:

  1. Work Center Purchase Requests and Orders 
  2. Click New Purchase Order and View All
  3. Under Items tab, ad the Product ID ABC in the Product ID field
  4. This message appears: "No Search results"
  5. Click "Enter", the Material Data will be maintained automatically on line Item level (Product Description, Product Category...).

You did not expect this behavior with a Blocked Material.


This is the current expected system behavior.


Upon ordering the New Purchase Order, this error message will pop up:

"Item 1: Product blocked "

The system will always stop the creation of a new Purchase Order which contains a Blocked Material (or Service).

Also, it is never advised to force the entry of data in any field by clicking Enter.
