Reproducing the Issue

1. Goto transaction MB5B. 
2. Enter material, plant, storage location.
3. Under stock yype select 'Valuated Stock'.
4. Execute / press F8.
5. Storage location field is cleared and the system raises message M7284: "Storage Location will be reset".

l Transaction MB5B does not allow this and sends the message M7284, as the report may result / deliver incorrect results. 
l To understand the behaviour of the report MB5B please review the structure and definition of the material master data.
l MB5B in mode "Valuated Stock" reads the entries from material valuation table MBEW for a material and valuation area (plant) to get the 
current valuated stock and value.
l Then it reads the related material documents and accounting documents to calculate the stock and values for the 'Selection From - To Dates'. 
l A valuation area could be assigned too many storage locations. 
l The related MM documents can belong to many storage locations. In the case where there are stock transfer postings from plant to plant the
MM documents would not contain a storage location. 
l It does not make sense to calculate and display the valuated stocks and values on level 'Valuation Area' when a number of selected 
material documents maybe missing the storage location.  

System is working as designed.
