Issue with ECS PO document type


We are facing an issue with the ECS PO document type (only one PO is affected).

The local PO in SRM is in "Saved" status due to the below error:

- Document type XYZ not allowed with doc. category F

This happened due to the fact that at the time of PO creation in SRM, user didn't have correct document type maintained in his PPOMA attributes and hence, the PO went into "Saved" status.

Even after correcting the document type in PPOMA, user tried to "order" it again but it still has the same issue.

What I would like to know is that is there any way to update the correct document type in the PO so that it goes to "ordered" status or the user needs to create a new PO.

    Hi Ajay,

    Once PO is saved, the document type cannot be changed any more.
    As the document itself has inconsistency now, please delete it and recreate a new one.

    Best Regards,

    This error is from backend side.
    Error message type is ME and error message number is 013.
    I suggest you create test data for BAPI_PO_CREATE1 of this PO in MM side and check if all the imported parameters from SRM is correct in this test data.
    If it is correct, and error only appear after testrun, this should be a MM issue.
    If it is incorrect, you have to correct the value in SRM PO manually.

    Anyway, if this doesn't happen to all the new POs, and this is not your production system, I suggest you just copy this PO or create a new same PO.
