Inquiry validity to be 1 day only

Dear Experts,

1.business requires inquiry shall be valid for only one day.

As we know we can fix valid from date through document type controls, but we cant fix valid to dates in config.

2. if inquiry validity expires it shall not show in open inquiries. Can we do it in standard ?

please suggest the best possible way.

Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    in inquiry screen,you can see that there is valid from-valid to date fields which you can have that control.Other than that you cannot do that in standard as far as i know.For that purpose,you can write a program to close inquires after a day they took place and link it a back. job.

    Hope helps.

    Fixing inquiry valid to day and making it unchangeable is not possible in standard, a few coding will be required in user exit.

    On your 2nd question: I'm actually not sure and I do not have access to any SAP system right now, but as far as I recall, even after expiration of inquiry, you can still see it in VA15 as open inquiry.

    Hello PK K,

    Regarding not showing the expired Inquiries in Open Inquiries list, I do not know if it is possible with standard settings or not. But while accessing T-Code VA15N, we have option for Open Inquiries or All Inquiries. Is this not useful?

    But as an alternative, you can run Mass update every month and enter Reason for Rejection for all expired Inquiries. Another solution would be to create a small Z-program to enter reason for rejection for all the expired Inquiries and you can also schedule a batch job to execute this Z-program periodically.

    Thanks,
