RFQ Release strategy issues with characteristic- Doc type and net value

Hello Experts,

Current release strategy is for PO, PR and Scheduling agreements with following Characteristics:

1. Plant

2. Purchasing Group

3. Document type (Purchasing) - CEKKO-BSART

4. Value - CEKKO-GNETW

I wanted to extend it to RFQ Document,

but,

Problem-1(Doc. type): the Purchasing document type is not valid for RFQ as it contains only Doc types for PO and PR (no AN. doc type in their) !

What i did:  maintained a new blank Doc type in this characteristic and selected this blank value in new release strategy for the RFQ, (still no success)

Problem-2:(Net value): Net value field not available in RFQ to trigger the strategy !

What i did: tried with different combinations like- keeping it blank, <=0 , >=0 , =0 but still not getting triggered !

Additionally i maintained a new Characteristic for the same class as the Purchasing Document category (CEKKO-BSTYP) and maintained it correctly for all the current release strategies. i.e. for the release strategy for RFQ it is maintained as A (RFQ) which is correct.

I checked the consistency in OMGSCK and all green traffic lights (everything seems OK)  !

Can anybody please suggest what could have been missing in the current config ? i cannot see anything wrong in the current scenario.

I read most of the questions on SCN as well but could not get the exact situation !

Is there any enhancement needed for this situation ?

Regards,

Sagar

    the values in this tab have to match with your RFQ, this strategy would only be triggered if you have a document category RFQ and no purchasing group, no purchasing organisation, no order type and no value

    Pretty nonsense isn't it?

    Kindly check the field 'KTWRT' in the communication structure 'CEKKO'. Try to include this field in the characteristics and test the release strategy.

    Hi,

    Considering you created an extra release characteristic as Purchasing Document category (CEKKO-BSTYP) and you use A for RFQ.

    Did you create separate release group for RFQ?

    If yes, create new release strategy for RFQ and keep all release vital values related to RFQ along with purchasing document category A in it.

    Now try creating new RFQ and see how release strategy triggering!

    Note release strategy is applicable at RFQ only and not quotation.

    Remove the price char from your class and then check it will work.
