Hi Experts,

I tried a lot to search answer before posting my query. But unfortunately, no appropriate answer was found. We have copied output type as Z1NE which is using the condition record CS01 for external send.

Whenever we are making changes to PO an email is getting triggered to vendor. We need to restrict it.

Can we put any check through ABAP which can restrict to send emails or it can be handled by configuration changes.

Thanks, in Advance.

Best Regards.

If you have a little knowledge about output determination then you must know that the output is triggered because you or your colleagues have customized it. Without customizing and condition records nothing will be printed.

Further it is very questionable why changes to a purchase order should not be communicated to the vendor, if these are changes at fields which are not relevant for the vendor then we have customizing for print relevant changes.

The output of changes is a prerequisite for reminders and versioning, so you should not restrict it, you should customize it to the needs, this has nothing to do with ABAP development.

You can remove the output for Operation 2 (Change) in the setting for " Fine tuned message control"

SPRO-->MM-->Purchasing--> Messages-->Output Control-->Message Types-->Define message types for PO--> Fine tuned Control

Although , i agree with Jurgen, why would you not convey to the Vendor that you are changing the PO details? Is the PO not meant for the Vendor itself?
