Pur req conversion type without default type

Hi experts,

I have created a link between a purchase requisition document type and a purchase order document type.

The issue is the PO doc is being positioned the first on the table of the PurReq allowed relations. So when I try to convert a purreq of that kind, the PO suggested is the new one.

As those PO doc types are used only few times it is not desired to have that PO doc type as the default one.

I have found that the suggested one is the first line of the purreq relations table, but I havent found how I can move the order of the lines there.


Thank you all,


Regards

    Thank you Jürgen.

    I have found useful the sap note 114213, specially the paragraph which says:

    "The default document type is no longer taken into account.

    If there are several allowed document types, the document type that is entered in the first position for the relevant selection in the table T161A has priority."

    So my question is: "Is it possible to rearrange the positions on that table in order to select another document type as the default one?"


    Thank you all again.


    Regards

    Hi,

    You can only control the allowed PO document types against the PR document type. System will only allow these document types in PO for the PR document type. There is no option in standard to default the PO document type based on PR document type in standard.

    Hi,

    In customization - you have linked PO document type with PR document type but cross check - did you default your document type for t.code ME21 and ME21N in following path:

    SPRO---MM-----Purchasing------ Define Default Values for Document Type

    Thank you both for answering.

    I haven't created any line on the "Define Default Values for Document Type" point because as I think, this point controls the type of the PO created acceding to those Tx.

    My issue is the document type automatically selected when I press "PO" on a Pur Req on the MD04.

    As PRASOON said I have to create the relations allowed to convert a PurReq to a PO, but SAP is automatically selecting the document type that appears on that table so I can't control in which type of PO has the Pur Req to be converted by default.

    Thank you,

    Regards

    Hi Rosh,

    Thanks for your answer.

    Correct me if I am wrong but from that transaction you don't control the document types of the pur req and PO when converting one to another.

    SAP s logic to determine the document type is explained in OSS note for automatic purchase order creation 114213 - ME59: Determining the order document type

    and in KBA for manual PO creation: 1907971 - ME21N : Default document type value is not taken from customizing "Default Purchasing Document Type in Transactions"

    If that does not fit with your expectations, then you have to go into development
