PO with Texts items

Hello Experts,

Please help me with how to transfer PO having texts items. I have seen few posts where people have said we cannot transfer such PO's.

Situation is all PO's are getting locked which has no material codes.

How to handle such PO's.

I cannot use any exits because I cannot skip any PO's without GTS check. By any chance can I handle this by configuration?

    Hi AJ,

    Configure or use a different P.O. Type for those having text items, and exclude that Type from compliance checks - easy!

    Hi Aj,

    As far i know We cannot do through config. But you can include coding in BADI "BAdI for Mapping and Enrichment of Data from Purchasing Documents (MM0A)" which should automatically assign dummy material for cases which does have material and only text description..then normal process will happen

    We can use ECC BADIs - MM0A and MM0B for PO and IBDs resp.

    Generic (dummy) materials needs to be created in GTS using FM - /SAPSLL/API_6850_SYNCH_MASS. Custom logic needs to be written in ECC BADI's to pass the dummy to GTS to update in GTS Customs documents for PO/IBD text materials which will help to make customs document complete.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi AJ,

    If you do not want any code changes, Dave's answer is the best approach. However, if you are open to implementing BADI /SAPSLL/IFEX_MM0A_R3 (Method IF_EXTEND_CON_CDOC), create a generic material named GTS_GENERIC_MATERIAL in ERP, transfer it to GTS and pass that as the material number in the BADI.

    loop at cs_itm_cdoc-gen into ls_gen.

    * If the productid is empty, get the short text and populate

    * additional fields in the extension

    if ls_gen-product_id is initial.

    * Get the short text from the EKPO table

    clear: ls_ekpo.

    read table it_ekpo into ls_ekpo with key ebelp = ls_gen-item_number.

    ls_gen-product_id = 'GTS_GENERIC_MATERIAL'.

    ls_gen-mat_short_text = ls_ekpo-txz01.

    modify cs_itm_cdoc-gen from ls_gen.

    clear: ls_extension2-field, ls_extension2-value.

    ls_extension2-row = ls_gen-item_number.

    ls_extension2-field = 'YY_TEXT'.

    ls_extension2-value = ls_ekpo-txz01.

    append ls_extension2 to ct_extension2.


    endloop. "cd_itm_cdoc
