Version Completed Indicator as mandatory in ME22N

Hi,

I know there are lots of threads on this topic and most of them are answered already but here my requirement is little bit different.

I need to make Version Completed check box as mandatory so that if user forgets to check it in ME22N inspite of entering Reason, Text and Requestor, then system should throw an error message to him before saving the PO.

Messages MMDCM -014 and 019 are not helping here as according to functional consultant, we should not change type of these messages and we should make sure that version completed indicator is set in ME22n itself before proceeding further with it's GR or invoice.

I know SAP recommends that version completed checkbox should be set by user only once he/she is done with changes.

But is there any way to make it actually mandatory in ME22N.

NOTE : I have already tried to find out various exits/enhancement but found nothing useful.

Kindly suggest.

Regards,

Richa

    Its a bit difficult task. EREV table contains the version number of the purchasing document. If the version completed is not ticked previously by the user, you can get the version completed unchecked in EREV table and propose error message to the user next time when this PO is edited.

    But, if the version is already completed and if any new version is triggered during po change, EREV does contain any value at run time. So, it would be difficult to propose error message in this case.

    • Yup, tried to look for enhancements too but found not a single one which bring version data in it. So, that is the problem here.

      But anyways thanks for taking out your time and suggest the solution. 😊

    Hi,

    You may check whether the attachments mentioned in the note: 1402609 - Version management is not available in the outline agreement BAPIs can give you an idea.

    Also check the thread:

    • Thanks Prasoon for your response.

      The link of SCN did not help as the SY-UCOMM is not being captured inside exit.

      Also, for the SAP Note, the BADI mentioned is not working for purchase order(ME22N).
