PO Owner Field

Can anyone help me with the PO Owner field.

I would like to understand the below questions.

1) What is the PO Owner field, where could we find this in PO or in any table.

2) Is that updated manually in the SAP, or there is any process to automate the user if the Owner of the PO leaves the company

3) Will there be any impact to the PO or approval process, if the Owner of the PO leaves the company. Does it requires any manual activity to assign to the different owner to complete the process?

Background, we are working on a project to automate the Owner leaves and to automatically assign this to different owner.

Any links to under the process how it works in SAP, would be great helpful.

    Hello Ganesh Doranathula ,

    I would suggest to search in SCN or Google for the question posted. This has been addressed multiple times.

    The details for the person who created PO are available in Table EKKO. All the PO header details are available there.

    For PO Approval process, the below blog should be a good starting point.

    You should understand or refer back question to business before automation " who is the PO owner"?

    Inputs already you have in PO- PO creator, PO releaser/s and purchasing group( and purchasing organisation).

    GENERIC Release code/s are designed and assigned to releaser/s without individual short name/code- so that if a releaser leaves an organisation , NO IMPACT to release documents as new comer user ID can be assigned to that release code .

    Similarly GENERIC Purchasing Group are created ( without individual short name/code- so that if a person leaves an organisation) NO IMPACT to purchasing documents, if any as new comer join( access provided to new comer for that purchasing group) but there are some exceptional case where purchasing group created with individual name with short code!

    *estimate the impact if release code and purchasing group are created referring individual name!!!!
