Change doc type for ML81N

Hi All,

I have a requirement that when MIGO is done Material Doc type "WE" is displayed in PO order history but when A Service entry sheet is created the Material document against it should be created for a newly created doc type.I have created Doc type WD in Tcode:"ÖBA7" and assigned it to ML81N in tcode OMBA ---- Automatic movement document type.

But still after i create service entry sheet.In PO purchase order history,Short text column displays WE only and not new document type "WD".

    Hello Leon,

    Can you please check value of BLART in MKPF, it should be your new document type which you have created. However transaction/event type will remain WE

    Please verify your steps below.

    You have to create new document type from copying existing doc type WE for goods receipt in t.code: OBA7.

    Select your document & click on details here assign new number range or use OMBT

    Use t.code: OMBA for assignment of new doc type to ML81N using Automatic movement type & save

    Hi Leon,

    The system used to pick a document type "WE" when you accept service entry sheet despite different document type assigned to transaction ML81N in OMBA. This is the standard behaviour and you've only option to work with reversal document type. When you look into the PO history, the document type lerf is first posted and then, the WE document type follows. I believe this is hard coded and needed technical assistance to change.
