Physical Inventory For Is Already Active

In many cases, user had already MI01 the same material and batch and that is why the system prompted the error.
User have to use MI04 to enter the inventory count and then MI07 to post the differences.
MI04 Quantity field will be grey in color if inventory count and post differences had been done.

Once user has complete the inventory count and post differences, they can then create a new physical inventory document without any issue.
