Hi experts

We have a scenario with regards to the PO approval procedure that after the Supply chain officer create a PO and releases it should be frozen for changes by the supply chain officer who creates it. Once the Superior SC officer or SC Manger rejects the PO only SC officer should be able to modify/change the PO line item details such as Quantity/Price etc.

Further although the frozen taken place for PO line item it should not freeze or restrict users for changing auxiliary delivery conditions such as transport, freight, insurance etc.

Kindly suggest me if there's any user exit or alternative solution if there's any.

I’m looking forward to your help in implementing this control.

Thank you in advance,

Azar

you can't swim without getting wet. If you decided to restrict changes to a PO then this includes delivery costs too.

Hi Jurgen, Yes. Understand the issue but for the time being let it block conditions as well but tell me is there a way to block the PO line items after the supply chain officers approval.

Further I believe SAP should open a window to do such modification as well because the PO Gross Value condition and other conditions are separate condition and should be able to implement users exit for such scenarios we well :-( .

How should SAP know what you plan to do when you are going into ME22N?

Already thought about turning the process and allowing changes after a release?

You could then eventually control in a BAdI or user exit what changes you want tolerate and where you want issue an error message.

Thank you Jurgen for your inputs :).

Is there a BAdI or user exit which can be applied with regards to this change if you are aware about. I have seen there are many but was unable to choose the relevant one as yet.

I agreed with Jurgan, but why not you maintain version management for this scenario, at least you have a record in your purchase order of changes with all the details!!

Hi Ankur, Although Versions exist the same solution will be required. For example after a PO change when the SC officer releases the PO block should take place for the user for certain key fields.
