    Hi Samicksha,

    Changes made in SO should be subsequently reflected in PO is not possible in standard SAP.

    Also in the link given by you in the question it is clearly mentioned that if PO is not created changes related to quantity and delivery dates of Sales Order can flow in PR only.

    Still if u want to achieve this you have to take help of ABAPer and following things needs to be set in background. Though this is not a standard practice and not recommended also.

    1) First you have to get the changes made in SO in a day

    2) Find PR/PO corresponding to Sales Order and Line item that is changed.

    3) Use BDC/Bapi for PO changes in order to incorporate changes in PO.

    Also number of fields in PO to be changed should be as minimum as possible so as to run this functionality smoothly.

    What about asking SAP about a design change?

    • If there was something in customizing then SAP would not need to post a highlighted note in their help files that this is not possible.

      Just think big. In many companies sales activities are segregated from purchasing activities, different users, different roles and responsibilities.

      Would you really want anyone in SD to change your purchase order unseen.

      Would it make sense to get a purchase order changed automatically which was already sent to your vendor?

      Background changes by programs do not even create change documentation, how could such changes then create output?

      This requires manual intervention as you need to the get output which informs the vendor about the changes.

      When would you classify a change as to late? And how could the sales order know about this?
