    Hi Santosh,

    This is already working like this in SRM.

    The output is executed at the time the PO is ordered (after final approval step).

    I would be really surprised if MM was sending the PO before its release !!!!!

    It should be standard.

    Have you tested it ?

    Have you posted the same question in ERP forum ?

      Hi Santosh

      In SRM there is no release procedure as you find in R/3 MM. Instead SRM is having workflow for PO through which you can build the same logic as release procedure does in R/3 MM. For this you need to activate the PO workflow in SRM which will trigger when you create PO.

      So when you click create PO button in SRM(assuming you are in classic scenario), PO workflow would get triggered. After it is approved(through workflow) PO gets created or released in R/3 MM.

      Hope the above solution would be helpful.

      Hi Santosh,

      As I already asked: have you posted this question in ERP forum ?

      I think that PO output is done at save time because you asked for it in ME22N.

      You could block this assigning a specific edition routine to your message type. In this form, you could control the release status.

      Have you tried not to enter manually the output type ?

      I mean did you try the standard message determination technic. So, based on defined conditions (access sequence), the system will create a message for your PO or not.

      I think/hope that in that case, the release status should be taken into account.
