2052539 - Materials With Sales Status Block Displaying Under Incomplete Materials

Symptom

You have blocked the Sales process of a particular Material and later observed that the Material is listed under Incomplete Material.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Block the Sales Process of a Material.
  2. Go to Materials view.
  3. Select Incomplete Materials, the above Material is listed here.

Cause

The materials are shown as part of Incomplete Materials if any of the processes are in status In Preparation or Blocked.

Resolution

If a Product is listed under Incomplete Materials, this implies that this product could be blocked either for Sales or Procurement but maybe Active for Supply Planning / Availability Confirmation / Inventory / Financials. The product can however be used in any SCM /SRM scenario but cannot be used in a Sales scenario. Likewise, if any one entry amongst the list of the Sales Organization & Distribution Channel status is maintained as Blocked, then this would up in Incomplete Materials.

This is expected system behavior.
