An STO from PO


Dear Experts,

We have a requirement to automatically trigger/create an STO from one PO, i.e. as soon as we save our PO, it should create new STO. This is requirement and need your advice to design this and how can this be achieved.

Thanks

    Dear Manish,

    With the Business Add-In (BAdI) ME_PURCHDOC_POSTED, you can trigger a variety of follow-on processing operations for purchase orders, contracts, RFQs, and quotations at the time of posting.

    Call BAPI_PO_CREATE and create STO using the above badi, which will trigger after saving the PO.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Bharat

    Hi,

    Before your requirement- you should understand difference between a PO and STO.

    Your PO is a Generic Purchasing Document( with a document type) where you have external vendor code with material with all purchasing conditions.

    Your STO is also a PO but with thin line difference (with different document type)- where in STO,you have vendor as Supplying plant with extra Item Category in it.

    As your PO and STO, both have different parameters in each case with document types,better create a new STO with reference to old STO and create a new PO with reference to old PO.

    Regards,

      This scenario is requirement of an international trade. Due to certain trade agreements, Goods cannot be sold directly from certain countries to specific countries. Hence there arises need to trade goods to interim locations and then do STO. There can also be need for an STO followed by another STO.

      Hope I explain the business requirement.

    Please check the below points:

    suppose in your PO you have a vendor, material, plant,delivery date

    -->for automatic creating STO you should have supp plant and receiving plant and the custom program needs these information to create STOs
