    What you've asked is already available in standard system, choose a line item in the delivery document and click details button. You'll be direct to be a screen, here you can get the predecessor document number under the tab 'Predecessor data.'

    Hi,

    The reference document in delivery doc is the reference document for the delivery. If the delivery doc is created against sales order, the reference document is order and if its a replenishment delivery, delivery is created against PO and the same will be displayed as reference document.

    In your case, the sales order is not an immediate predecessor for the delivery and hence it can not be displayed as a reference document through configuration as of my knowledge.

    • Don't spend too much effort in screwing up your system. This is not just a text field without any dependencies. If you do not reference a STO in a STO delivery then you may not get the desired result at all. If you want do something more meaningful then move this number into a customer text.

    Hi Deven,

    Immediate preceeding document gets copied as reference document.

    In case of STO delivery, as the immediate preceeding document is a PO, reference document will show as STO Number.

    To solve this, you can identify any Empty field in STO which is not currently in use, and you can maintain the Sales Order number.

    For Eg : Create a Text ID (SO10) and maintain SO# in it and move that text ID to delivery from PO.

    so you will be able to find the SO# in STO Delivery.

    Hope this will help.

      Thanks for the reply Nimaee Pandit.

      Yes it can be done. But my purpose is to replace the STO document no. from sales order no. so that i can block those line items of sales orders through delivery like in the case of STO referenced delivery.

    Hi Deven,

    How will you find out the relation between SO & STO in the first place to replace the "reference doc" field. That is why you need to individually maintain a track of SO - STO - Delivery by maintaining text.

      Hi Nimaee,

      Yes absolutely, we have the account assignment STO scenario based on purchase requisition from sales order. And we want that sales order line items to be reserverd with the help of delivery predecessor document as a sales order no & its line items. I suppose it can be controlled through exit, if i am not wrong. Thanks anyways.
