Rejecting 3rd Party Items


We have a situation where some 3rd party items created a year back are sticking out as open and are reflecting in various open order reports. We tried applying reason for rejection but we get an error message stating that "Subsequent document already exists for item xxxxxx" and "delete purchase order xxxxxxxx, item xxxxx". This is happening in situation where the subsequent PR/POs have been already marked for deletion.

Checked for correction programs to fix this and the closest I was able to find was - SAP Note # 97272 but this is also not meeting our requirement.

Can anyone share your thoughts on how to delink these orders from their POs and set a reason for rejection so that they are marked as complete.

    Check whether you can put the quantity in the purchase req as zero (per OSS 392945 - Error message V1544 when rejecting an order ). Also refer OSS notes 549972 - FAQ: Rejecting third-party items or individual PO items and 356895 - Rejection of third-party items and individual PO items

    for further guidance.

    Have a look at the following note:-

    • Note 1716078 - Individual purchase order: Cannot reject item
