What is the Meaning of Create Storage Location Automatically ?
Basically, it’s not creating storage Location for a plant, it’s creating storage Location data for your Material. Let’s say you have plant X, and you have storage location A and B for your plant, but you haven’t created B storage location but when you activate automatic storage location during GR and You Wanted to Receive for Storage Location B it will not give you any error but still the system will allow storage location data to be created for your materials but it will automatically extend the storage location B for that material in the back end.This means you can get your stock at B storage locations of X plants without having to Assign the material to B storage locations.The standard system is configured in such a way that the storage location data is generated automatically for all types of goods receipt / good issue. Whenever this procedure is called an auto entry is created in the table MARD.
Create Storage Location Automatically Process should be set automatically in the below two ways.
