Q1: Why does the system not execute the availability information automatically when you enter the product?
This is not provided in the standard system. You must always start the ATP information explicitly. However, you can use CRM_ATP_INFO_BADI, method TRIGGER_EXECUTION to activate the automatic start of the availability information.
Q2: I have implemented the BAdI for the automatic execution of the availability information. After each check, the system now issues error message CRM_APO 110 "Availability check: ATP check could not be carried out". Why is this the case?
Make sure that the BAdI implementation in the method TRIGGER_EXECUTION is correct. The error message may be issued if the parameter cv_conf_mode is not set.
Q3: Why does the result of the availability information always display a yellow traffic light? What do I have to do to make the traffic light turn green?
There are different reasons for this. For more information, refer to the notes specified below:
- Customizing settings may be missing in the date profile.
- There may be inaccuracies in the conversion between different time zones.
Q4: If you enter a requested delivery date in the past and if the material can be confirmed immediately, the system creates the schedule line also with the date in the past. Should the system not display the current date in the confirmed schedule line?
No. The availability check only checks the availability of the material. It does not carry out shipment or transportation scheduling. However, this would be necessary to determine the shipping date. If you require an exact shipping date, you should use the local ATP (as of CRM 4.0).
Q5: If you save the order and transfer it to the R/3 system, the system does not send a confirmed schedule line to the CRM system despite the ATP check in the R/3 system. Why is this?
The reason for this may be that you have selected a scenario that does not allow an update in the CRM system using the response from R/3 System.
