Deletion/cancellation/ageing of po's

Hi All,

This is Ravi Kiran. Am SAP-BI/BW consultant. Here I would like to discuss My requirement that related to SAP-MM.

We are getting data from R/3 to BW. Then we used to upload data to informatica and then users prepare reports

and see through a interface called "MAXI".

My requirement is :

Topic: cancellation / deletion / ageing of PO's.

After a first brainstorming with "MAXI" business, there seem to be 2 options to 'out date' PO positions.

PO's will only become outdated implicitly after ALL positions became outdated.

Please confirm.

Option 1: Delete Position.

<<Find attached picture>>

--Cannot be reversed.

- on MAXI gui the affected PO positions will have to be marked by trash bin icon as within R/3 (read only on MAXI(interface) side)

- how this deletion will be visible in the data MAXI receives?

- do we have to extend the current interface?

Option 2: Block Position.

<<Find Attached picture>>

--

can be reversed (unblock)

- on MAXI gui the affected PO positions will have to be marked by padlock icon as within R/3 (read only on MAXI side)

- how this deletion will be visible in the data MAXI receives?

- do we have to extend the current interface?

Please confirm and reply.

Is there any additional indicator within PO data to indicate ALL positions are outdated?

If PO's won't be updated since >2 years, they have to become 'invalid'=to be removed on MAXI side. As far as I see date0 will be the relevant data to check.

Please confirm.

Do you see any other scenario which I missed so far?

Many thanks for your support.

Br

Ravi kiran.

    Check whether the below answer helps you in any way.

    The PO line items which are marked for deletion will have the indicator "L" in EKPO-LOEKZ and for Blocked PO line item "S" in the same field.

    Dear Ravi,

    1.) As Ashok told PO line item will have status of block(S), hold(H), park(P), delete(L), Blank(Saved completely) each will be denoted with single character. In Standard system, A PO line item details not available can be kept as held, all details filled without error message can be parked. After parking it can be saved once saved you can only put block or delete both status are reversible.

    2.) Have to confirm with business under which criteria/status,  PO's need to bring to Max interface. Check table EKBE for all PO line item related history details. Subsequent details like goods receipt, Invoice receipt or down payment will happen on the basis of Line items.  This table will contain latest transaction data corresponding to any PO line item.

    R,

    • Thanks a lot srinivas.......i will check accordingly.What you guys are telling is done at Our BW side.

      All fields (deliv_compl indicator,deletions flags...etc) mapped correctly. i had a check in My BW prod. Data is populating with X for some items and L for some items. But For users they are not appearing. may be fault at their side.Who knows they  are designed logics and joins properly....

      thnkssssss

    If table "EKPO" is showing right information, then it might be problem with your query table joining or with "Maxi".

    Deletion indicator at purchase order concluded that PO has been closed.
