PO change tracking and output

Hello,

I am working on Purchase Order changes.

I have 2 problems to address:

1)after I output a PO, I am changing the PO, for example, the net price, I expect the system to release another output with the changes.

I have set up NEU with the operation 2 in Fine tune control for POs and net price is one of the " print relevant changes".

But still the PO is not output with the changes.

2) My requirement is to use version numbers to track the PO changes. When I am making changes in the PO,a new version number is assigned only when I "complete" the previous version. "Complete" is a checkbox in the Po header. I have to manually check this box. I would expect the system to automatically assign a new revision number depending on the print relevant changes changes made.

I would appreciate any thoughts on these two issues.

best regards,

Srinivas

    Hi srinivas,

    1.kindly first check whether the first output message is

    processed or not.If there is no unprocessed message

    then system should create change message neU when you change the PO.

    Please check customizing setting SPRo->MM->purchasing->

    messages->Output Control->Message Types->Define Message Types for Purchase Order->Maintain Message Types for PO->

    select type NEU and goto details.Here check under general data tab change out Program should be FM06AEND and

    FORM routine CHANGE_FLAG.

    2.in version management system only creates the new version when previoues version is completed.you have to set version complete indicator manually.In customizing you can set version 0 as complete automatically.i.e in case of first version i.e version 0 only system sets the completed indicator automatically .For all other versions you have to set manually.

    You can specify that version 0 is to be completed

    automatically in Customizing for purchasing.

    To do so, set the Version 0 OK indicator under

    Version Management->Set up Version Management.

    The system always creates a new version when the purchasing document has reached a final state. This means one of the following processing states:

    Active

    If you do not use the document release

    functionality

    Release completed

    If you use the document release functionality

    For a new version of a purchasing document to be created, all messages must have also been transmitted.No new versions are generated for purchase orders that are on hold.

    Not every change to an external purchasing document results in a new version. The following changes lead to a new version:

    -All print-relevant changes

    -Changes in document assignment

    -Changes in address

    Address changes result in a new version only if the field ADRC-NAME1 has been defined as a field that is relevant to printouts of changes.

    -Changes to master conditions

    Changes in master conditions result in a new version only if the field EKPO-NETPR has been defined as a field that is relevant to printouts of changes.

    Hope this will helps you.

    Regards,

    sunitha
