    Hi

    The PO contents are stored in SAP standard tables <b>EKKO & EKPO.</b>

    EKKO - Purchasing Document Header

    EKPO - Purchasing Document Item

    <b>Tcodes:
    Create PO  - ME21N
    Changes PO - ME22N
    Display PO - ME23N</b>

    For more information on PO, kindly check the following link: Look for topic <b>"Purchase Orders"</b>

    Hope this helps!

    best regards,

    Hi,

    Customer's PO becomes SO at your end. For reference/communication reason SAP has provided a field to fill-in your customer's PO number. The contents are not stored anywhere as it makes no sense when your SO carries all the content.

    This PO reference is used in below example scenarios. The use varies depending on the business needs.

    1) EDI communication for order confirmation

    2) Order confirmation/Packing slip/Invoice prints

    Not sure if it clarifies!

    Cheers

    Hi Edgar,

    Customer's PO data is stored in tabke <b>VBKD</b> (Sales Document: Business Data) and the field name is <b>BSTKD</b> (Customer purchase order number).

    Hope this will help.

    Regards,

    Hi Edgar W.

    While creating Sales order, you enter customers purchase order reference. If you observe this field is just a text field and it allows any field value there, you may enter just a dot there by chance if in customization it is manditory.

    Data of this purchase order is not stored in R/3, just a reference is stored in sales order header table.

    <b>The usage of this field is :</b>

    The purchase order number creates the link between the customer purchase order and the sales document that you create. You can use the number used by the customer during correspondence with the customer to find certain document information. If the number refers to a purchase order, you can also print it on the documents that you send to the customer (e.g. on the delivery note).

    Hope this clarifies.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Sambhaji

      Edgar,

      Most of this information (department\store of customer) should be assigned at the customer master and can be pulled into output from there. The best way that we have found to handle a distribution center is to create a new ship-to partner for the DC and then use partner determination to retrieve the DC address on the sales order.

      How are you printing the shipping label as this will control where you can access the necessary data?
