CIF User Exit for Purchase Orders

Hi All,

We use variant configuration. VC code populates some of the characteristics values in purchase order.

These char vales are okay for E.C.C but not needed in APO. Can we block those char vales using from passing to APO.

Is their any user exit for the same.

Thanks for your inputs.

    Hi Amlan,

    There is standard functionality to do what you want.  The first question you have to ask yourself is "what characteristics do I want to send to APO?".  For these characteristics, you assign an APO-specific organizational area.

    In ECC the Path is: SPRO -> Cross Application Components -> Classification System -> Classes -> Maintain Object Types and Class Types.  An Object table is displayed.  Select object CAWN for Characteristic.  Select Organizational Area in upper left.  Add meaningful entry for APO like "A".  It could be any character.  Make an entry for classes 023 and 300.  Save.

    Edit the class with the characteristic you want to transfer.  If you want to transfer the entire class, enter the organizational area on the class Basic Data screen and for each characteristic on the Characteristic screen.  If you just want to send a few characteristics, enter the organizational area on just those characteristics. 

    Now, when you create your CIF integration model for Classes and Characteristics, enter the organizational area in the selection criteria.  The CIF transfer will pick up only the characteristics with the APO organizational area assigned.  You can assign more than 1 org. area to an integration model.

    Best Regards,
