Copy EL(Purch. SchAgrRelease) application to create one more Custom Application


Requirement is :

I have around 60 Suppliers for one CO Code or which EL is activated to send Release per Material Per message in DELFOR.

Now we have a requirement for new CO. Code/Plant to send call off's One Message per Supplier consolidating all the Materials in DELFOR.

So i do not want to impact the current setup for the existing suppliers,and copy the EL,create new Application,create a new Procedure,new condition type and assign it for new set of suppliers relevant for New Co code.

I tried it with new procedure but its saying Entry for EL already exists. SO for me it looks i need to copy EL and create a new application.

Kindly help here on the different possibilities.

    The main problem is not output message EL, but release strategy. Base on SAP note 365604 - FAQ: Release strategies in purchasing, point 1.a about release group, you are only allowed to use one class for the overall release or individual release. Because your previous release strategy is individual release (per material release) then you can't release strategy for overall release.

    But, I still have solution for solve this problem. You are still using individual release strategy, but for specific company code, message will send per vendor (overall release strategy).

    In tcode VOFM, in submenu 'Requirements-Output Control', you create custom routine number (need access key, custom routine number must begin with '9', example 900, 901, etc). Copy coding from routine number '105' to your custom routine number.

    After that, adjust coding base on your requirement. For new company code, your coding will check whether all items in schedule agreement already released or not. If not released yet for all item then you change sy-subrc value become '4'.

    In tcode NACE, you assign custom routine number in procedure of output type.

    • Thanks Andy for your reply,true what you said,i thought if i can maintain another entry with Appl/Procedure/Condition it should be fine.

      So one for Per Part/Message and another one for Consolidated message.But as you said my understanding might not be right.

      Let me implement your solution and will come back to you if it works.

      Thanks a lot!!!
