    Hi,

    You can get the Sales order for a PO no in VA02.Using the sales order no you can get the Invoice no from VBFA.

    Hi Nitin

    Two Options:

    1. Extract BSEG entry with KOART = 'S', EBELN = <PO Number>, EBELP = <PO Item>. With the accounting document number, we can get entry from BKPF.

    2. Check EKBE entries, extract the IR Number and Fiscal Year.

    -- Concatenate these 2 and extract from BKPF with AWTYP = 'RMRP', AWKEY = <IR Number+Year>.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Eswar

    Nitin,

    first of all u need to understand The generated Invoices and POs in SAP system are not at the same side.

    In SD point of view

    Invoice means, supplier sends sends it to the Customer, and it will be generated in SAP system at the Supplier side.

    PO menas, the PO sent by Customer, and it will be registered in the Sales Order, which means that, Against the PO a sale order is created, hence Invoice.

    Invoice also called Outgoing Invoice, PO called Incoming PO

    In MM point of view

    PO means, which is generated at Customer side and will be sent to Supplier, this is the that gets generated at Vendor's SAP System, its also called Outgoing PO,

    Invoice means, The supplier is going to send it to the Customer, with reference to the PO he sent, and will be registed in the PO . also called Incoming Invoice

    I think u understood the concept now.

    in VBAK , vbeln is the INvoice number and BSTNK is the Customer PO

    this is in SD point of view.

    when come to MM point of view

    in EKKO , EBELN is the PO number

    Regards,

    Sujatha.

    Hi Nitin

    PO number in the transaction VA43 is the purcahse order number which has come to you from customer against which you create a SALES ORDER. It is stored in VBAK-BSTNK.

    Dont confuse this PO number with the EBELN-EKKO. This is the Purcahse order number which you are sending.

    I hope this clears the confusion.

    Rewars points if helpful.
