How to restrict the un-approved sales order appearence in MD04 Screen

Hello Experts

in MTO Scenario, Once sales Order created for the header material, immediately the sales order is appearing in the MD04 screen even the sales order is not yet approved. If we run the MRP for the header material, SAP system is generating a planned order for the un-approved sales order.

So is there any options to restrict the un-approved sales order appearence in MD04 Screen or avoid MRP RUN for the un-approved sales order.

Thanks & Regards,

    Hi,

    I would suggest updating the delivery block once the sales order created and sales order not updated in MD04 stock requirement list.

    Approver removes the delivery block then sales order appear in MD04 stock requirement list.

    • Thanks Lingaiah.

      Here already delivery block functionality used only for the credit limit related things.

      Apart from delivery block, Is there options available to restrict the un-approved sales order appearence in MD04 Screen.

      Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Ramkumar RV,

    I think we need to be clarified with the term order. Order means order that should happen only in any cases, no compromise. If you want to have control like approve/unapproved then you need to look at Inquiry and Quotation. Once these are all converted to order which means that we confirmed that all approve has given to the order. You can have the control check in Pre sales activity. Not in sales activity. Thanks

    • Thanks Mahendran for your suggestion.

      I agree your point if the customer and/or material are new, and we follows Inquiry/ Quotation --> Sales Order.

      Here mostly we directly create sales order without quotation.

      So Client needs some approval validation in the Sales Order level since sales orders created by Sales Depart Team (a Group of members). And also SAP provides option to approve or reject the Sales Order level (VA02 TCode --> Enter SO --> Click Header Icon -->Click Status Tab -->Click Object Status -->Change Status from A001 Intial to A003 Approved).

      Thanks & Regards,

    Hello,

    You can use the reason for rejection functionality for it. As RFR sales document does not appear in MD04. While creation you can set the RFR and once you approved remove the RFR.

    Or you can use the scheduled category as CN - No MRP and approving it change to CP for MRP.
