SAP Purchase Order - Erroneous Freight Charges on PO - How to stop pulling from previous POs?

Freight conditions and their costs are into subsequent POs.  How can I stop this from happening? 


I create PO 45xxx123 for material 1000 from vendor 12345.  At this point there are no freight charges pulling into the freight conditions (the InfoUpdate flag on the material tab in the PO is not checked). 

Then freight in manually entered into the freight conditions...let's say $1000 into ZFRT.  PO is then saved.

The next PO for the same material & vendor combination will now pull the $1,000 ZFRT cost into this new PO.  Why? 

Also, I have tested entering multiple freight conditions and their corresponding freight costs into the original PO...they all get pulled into any subsequent POs. 

I checked the PIR freight conditions...those are $0.  The freight costs can be zeroed out...but I need to find a solution to stop the freight charges from populating based on previous POs. 

Thanks for you help with this!

    It is the standard behavior, if you don't want the system to copy the condition from the last PO then call the transaction Su3 and check the parameter value which assigned to the Get/set Parameter id 'EVO'. Then, call the transaction OMFI, select the parameter value and click details. Here you'll find three options such as i) Always copying condition from the last PO ii) Not if price entered manually iii) Don't copy.  By default, the always copy is selected. If you select the option 'don't copy' then the conditions won't copy from the last PO. Kindly test in your system.

    • come on, this is not that difficult to identify the the key which is defined in OMFI will be the value that you have to maintain for EVO in SU3

      If you would go the IMG path instead of using transaction names, then you could find the documentation right in front of the IMG task that exactly explains it.

      Refuse learning those IMG transactions, better get used to the IMG structure and open the docu before doing customizing.

      You can also find documents in SCN that explain it with pictures :

      Define Default Values for Buyers (OMFI)
