    Even from a lot discussions which do not exactly address your question you may get enough information to resolve the issue, and looking into the documentation in should also clear the doubts if it is in general possible of not, isn't it?

    • Hi,

      You need to play with configuration of condition type- find the condition type for your service PO.

      Now use t.code M/06, select C( quantity scale) in the scale basis in Scales segment and select check box od Qty Conversion in Control data-2 segment, and save.

      Update these change of that condition type in your MM pricing procedure in t.code M/08.

      You can opt always GR based invoice verification in vendor master and service PO also.

      In your case-----Now create service PO with 8hrs with activity unit 1 AU

      Do service entry sheet 0.5 quantity which is 4hrs and do invoice of 4hrs for your service PO

      Later go for service entry sheet of balance quantity and do invoice verification.

      NOTE: You can also service entry sheet of 0.1, 02, 0.3,0.4 and 0.1 quantities and finally go for invoice verification.

    You created service PO with account assignment category K- you need to cross check setting for account assignment category K only.

    Use t.code OME9, check facilities of multiple account assignment 2 selected for field of AcctAssgt Scrn and if not select 2 and save it.

    Now create a new service PO and test it by entering multiples G/ L account for your requirement in your service PO.
