    Hi Jaheer,

    If I understand the issue, you are trying to Search for the relevant purchasing document in CLM for Contracts that are replicated from CLM to ECC.

    In CLM you should be able to use Global Search functionality to be able to Search the Purchasing Document ID which in your screen print begins with 46XXXX. The search will return results only if the 46XXX number is tied to the CLM Contract, after successful publish from CLM to ECC.

    If you are looking for the CLM Contract # in ECC, that should be available in the Text field of the Purchasing Document.

    • Hi Jaheer,

      Looks like the screen shot that you are displaying represents the line items of the Outline Agreement in ECC for Master Agreements published from CLM.

      I think it will be helpful to look at the XML payloads that are being sent being CLM and ECC through PI/XI including the response files, which will give you an idea to which field in ECC the ES Document Number is mapped to.

    What you are seeing is all the references to the Sourcing documents.. (remember this is stored at the line item level) so it is displaying all the line items..

    The first column will give you the sourcing doc no which is the same as the 'Unique Doc name' in sourcing. The second column will give you the ERP Document number..

    If you were to use the ERP document number use transaction ME33K (if its a contract) then you can see the sourcing doc. no. on the line item texts...

    In other words the text that is showing up is the Unique Doc. Name from Sourcing..

    Hope this is what you are looking for..
