    Hi Leonardo

    You first need to define an output in the PO to be able to see the Print preview. the standard SAP PO print output type in NEU

    two ways of doing it are:

    1. Open the PO in ME22N. then click on messages and manually propose output type NEU and then try to see the Print preview

    2. Define condition records for NEU output type in transaction MN04 - this will propose outputs in the future documents which meet the defined criteria

    Please try and reward points if it helps you

      Hi Leonardo,

      I think that it's disabled as 'designed'. Printing a PO is a business critical process ( allowing to send paper to a vendor and starting a real flow with obligations ) so you don't want to allow that for somebody with only access to ME23N ( and not ME22N )

      IF you still want to allow this for a user, you can try allowing him to use either ME9F or more generic RSNAST00.

      ( You could build a small Z transaction around these standard transactions if you want to simplify more )

    Hi Leonardo,

    Goto Edit mode in ME23N Screen and click on Messages.

    Highlight the Log (Eg: ZPOC) and click on Change Output.

    Now the second Output Message will be appeared with Output type ZPOC, Change the Message format to NEU and mention the partner.

    Maintain the medium as special function.

    Save it.

    The Spool Number will be generated for the Message (One can view by clicking on Processing Log).

    Now open Transaction SP01.

    Enter the Spool Number and execute.

    Select the Spool Number and click on Print Directly Option.

    We can print the PO by selecting the appropriate Printing Machine.
