Link from delivery to subcontracting purchase order

Hi Guys,

anyone know how to pick up the link from a delivery (LIKP / LIPS) and the subcontracting purchase order (EKKO / EKPO) which was used to create it?

I'm not sure such a link exists - the PO does not appear in the document flow of the delivery, and the delivery does not appear in the history of the purchase order.

My users want to print the PO number on the delivery document (not unreasonable?) but I can't find a link anywhere...

    Hi Mick,

    I assume that you mean the outbound delivery created in transaction ME2O to deliver components to your subcontractor.

    There is no link possible between the subcon.PO and this outbound delivery. Because the component requirements in ME2O can be the result of multiple subcon.PO's. When you create the outbound delivery, it contains components for the cumulated requirements (so that can be for multiple PO's). That's the reason that there is logically no link possible between PO and the outbound delivery.

    Kind regards, Dick Hendriks.

    Hi Mick and welcome to the SDN,

    may be you can check vbfa with vbtyp_n or vbtyp_v = 'V'.

    Additionally via rsnum/rspos in table lips you can go to table resb and get ebeln and ebelp which are the purchase order and the purchase order item.

    Hope this helps

    regards

    Siggi

    Hi Mick,

    There is no link between an outbound delivery and the PO in the "standard" system.

    If you used IS-DI, it has a specific function (txn ADSUBCON) to create the linkage of a PO and a delivery. Otherwise you will have to create a user field (e.g., in EKPO) and assign the delivery number in it.

    Hope it helps,

    Isaac
