V.25 in Background

Hello SAP Gurus,

In t-code V.25, SO's can only be released in the online mode. Is there any transaction or FM available that can be used to release the SO's in background mode?

Thanks,

Maruthi

I find it rather strange that you would receive EDI1/EDI2 if you don't want it reviewed and then released- can't you simply discard this based on some business rule?

If this is really not possible and your business users strongly insist to keep EDI1 even for these special orders for some reporting purposes, then maybe it is cheaper to create a custom VOFM routine as a copy of 008 and use some specific attribute as a differentiating factor, e.g. BSARK (or whatever you use to distinguish your EDI orders) to set CEPOK to a value, which you find appropriate.

I'm also wondering the same. Instead of "mass release" much better strategy is to prevent blocking in the first place. There are many other options than changing incompletion procedure, just as you've mentioned. Likely a simple user exit or EDI mapping change could take care of this whole issue.

Hi Veselina, Jelena,

Thanks for your comments. We are already using VOFM routine to set the CEPOK to "B" or "A". Thanks for this idea as it would make sense to change it during the SO creation.

Thanks,

Srinivas

V.25 is report RVKPR002 that can be scheduled to run in background. But I'm guessing this will produce just a list and V.25 requires some manual action.

We don't use this and I can't confirm but is there any reason your ABAPers can't simply look in this report?

Hi Jelena,

Thanks for your response. We have a requirement where the orders that have been in the incomplete status because of the price differences have to be set to complete and order has to be processed immediately. Our business is going to work with the customer later on the price differences. So, we would like to automate the manual release action in V.25.

I'll check with the ABAPer on this report.

Thanks,

Maruthi

FYI - when you use "answer" the other people are not notified of it. If you're replying to someone else's answer then use Reply/Comment underneath. In this case they'll get a notification that you've replied something.

It doesn't work anymore as it used to on SCN, unfortunately.

On the OP subject - are you planning to just release everything? In such case maybe just make a change so that the orders are not blocked in the first place. Otherwise what's the point?

Hi Jelena,

Thanks for the tip on the reply/comment button. This is a subset of EDI orders where we are planning to release everything. For most of the EDI orders, we do need to have this functionality to block it so that business can validate and make changes as required. As they all use the same item category, we cannot change the incompletion log. Adding a new item category would be a bigger change. We are just going to see if we can create a custom program to call V.25 and release the orders using a BDC.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks,

Srinivas

Hi Lakshmipathi,

If I ran V.25 in background, it just provides the list of SO's but they will not be released automatically. Is that what you're referring to or are you saying in background they can be released?

Thanks,

Srinivas
