Unable to change account assignment field in PO

Hi Experts!

We are using SRM 7.0 with extended classic scenario.

We are facing an issue with account assignment category field in a PO.Here is our scenario.

User created a PO with costcenter account assignment field and this PO transffered to backend system i.e R/3.

When the user again tried to edit the PO in SRM and change the account assignment field from costcenter to Internal order that is not possible because the

account assignment field is grayed out .Then the user has to create a new PO with Internal order as the old PO didn't allowed him to change.

Can any one help me in this regard with some OSS note or any other possible solution and what might be the reason for the same?

Thanks in advance!

Regards,

Kalyani.

    Hello Kalyani,

    Just to understand, Is your PO has Good Receipt or Invoice receipt processed? If so then PO do not allow to change the account assignment as charges are booked already.

    If not i would recommend to check if your BBP_GETSTATUS_2 job is running with proper interval? Sometime old PO's do not get refresh status if BBP_GETSTATUS_2 variant is set based on SAP recommendation (i.e. 7 days or so). In that case please execute manually BBP_GETSTATUS_2 and validate.

    Thank you

      Hi Anuraj,

      Thanks for your quick response.I have gone through the suggested note and observed that these changes are available in our system as this note valid till SRM 6.0 but we are in SRM 7.0

      Thanks.

      Regards,

      Kalyani

    Hi Kalyani,

    In all probability this is because the GR or the invoice for the PO has been processed as Ritesh mentions.

    Hi,

    Check if this works.

    Goto Transaction MEMASSPO -> Table EKKO & EKPO and directly change the content.

    Check if this works for you.

    If there is no GR or IR done for the PO, this behavior is certainly not standard. Check for BADIs/enhancements that work on the status of the PO.
