Tolerance Limit at PO document level

Is there a way I can do the tolerance limit at PO document level ? I can't do at company code level as we buy materials overseas too and we don't want to have any restriction on  those .

Thanks

    Hi MM,

    you can set a price tolerance limit in SPRO->Materials Management->Purchasing->Purchase Order->Set Tolerance Limits for Price Variance defined by company code and you can define quantities tolerance limits in info records.

    regards,

    hi,

    if you want to set tolerance limit at PO level then you can set when you create PO in delivery tab at item level or in change mode . under delivery and over delivery . you may also check the following link with same issue :

    Hi,

       In standard, there is no option to set the tolerance at PO document type level. If you want, you may set the tolerance limit at info record level, which will be copied to PO - delivery tab.

    Are you talking about price tolerance or quantity tolerance? There are 3 kinds of tolerances that I can think of:

    1) Price Variance from Material master price - IMG ->MM-> Purchasing->PO->Set tolerances for Price variance. This is done per Company code. Set message PE 207 to error in case you want to stop creation of POs based on this.

    2) Invoice block based on PO price and Invoice price: IMG->MM->LIV->Invoice block

    Set tolerance limits for tolerance key PP. This will block the invoice for payment. This is also set per company code.

    3) Quantity tolerance: Can be set directly in the PO, in Material master (purchasing view using tolerances) and in Info records.

    In PO higher priority is given to the info record data than MM data.

    As far as I know there can be no tolerance per purchasing document or purchasing organization

    Thanks for all your reply ! I know I can't do at document level and we don't use info record. Issue raised when we start receiving against inter company PO . We don't want receiving DC to  receive more that PO QTY otherwise inter-company balance will out of balance. We can't put tolerance at client level as for our import product we don't want any tolerance. I guess only option left manually remove the unlimited tolerance check box from inter-company PO. Right now it's coming from material master as all the materials have unlimited box check.

    • tolerances are not checked at all in inter company POs, this is discussed over and over again ad nauseam

      receiving only as much as the PO order quantity will certainly create even more inconsistencies in inter-company and intra-company scenarios.

      You have to receive as much as it was goods issued, only then nothing will be left in transit.

      And since this was so much discussed I locking this discussion now, after the question became much clearer as it initially was.
