There are times when there are some items that should not be placed in a particular warehouse, and in SAP there are functions that can help with these conditions.
In the item master data there is a list of active warehouses for the company used, and there is a “Locked” column in the warehouse list. If in a certain warehouse, the “Locked” column is a tick on, then the item cannot be transacted on the checked warehouse.
From the picture above, it means that item code Z00004 should not be placed in warehouse 02.
And if a transaction is made on that item with a restricted warehouse, the message “The warehouse is locked for this item” will appear. For example, attached:
- Purchase Order
- Good receipt
