Note 200021 Details:

When does this problem occur

The runtime of Transaction MR11 is very long and/or terminates after a

long time.

Cause of the problem and Pre-requisites

In the 'Criteria' box, you entered values which are too large in fields

'Qty difference smaller than' and 'Purchase orders older than'

 for the selection and in the 'Selection criteria' box you chose areas

which are too large in fields 'Vendor', 'Purchasing group', 'Pu

rchasing document' and 'Plant'.

Solution instructions

When you choose the selection criteria enter smaller areas and run

Transaction MR11 in several steps.

When selecting the criteria make sure that you do not choose 100% in

field 'Qty difference smaller than'. Otherwise, all invoices whic

h are still open or goods receipts are selected.

You select delivery surplus and 100% difference.
Now also all goods receipt are selected which do not yet have
an invoice receipt since here the quantity of goods received is

 larger (100%) than the invoice quantity (0%).

For field 'Purchase orders older than' you have to ensure not to choose
a number of months which is too high. Otherwise the system has

 to read too many purchase orders since the purchase orders already

completely settled are read, too. Here you should archive the alre

ady settled purchase orders.
