Approval procedure on not based document

Hi everybody,

Is it possible to launch an approval procedure if a purchase invoice is not based on a document (a purchase order for example)?

Thank you.

    Yes

    Setup an approval to see if the base/target document fields are blank. Create a user defined search to do this. A sap webex session from about 6 weeks ago showed an example of how to do this.

    e.g. I use this one to ensure that the sales employees change the name of the one time customer prior to entry

    SELECT CASE WHEN $[$54.0.0] LIKE '%%One Time Customer%%' THEN 'True' ELSE 'False' END

    The approval will block the user from saving.

    Best wishes

    Dave

    Thank you. It helps me a lot.

    I would like to do the same thing but after a check on each line of the document.

    Do you know if it is possible ?

    Thank you.
