How can I search for POs by current (and not original) requestor?

I am trying to search for POs by their current requestor (that may have been manually changed since the PO was created). The functionalities of ME2N only allow me to search for the original requesor.

I was told that I might be able to create such a table through SE16 or SE16N but could not find any information on how to do this.

Can anybody offer some help?

Thanks so much.

Ben

Where was this requestor changed, in the PR or in the PO?

If it was changed in the PR and not in the PO then it is obvious that you can't see it in ME2N, but then is such change pretty useless too.

The requestor was changed in the PO.

I have not yet seen that ME2N would lookup the change documents to retrieve the original requestor, you probably mix the terms, about what technical field are you talking?

when using ME2N and the dynamic selections I'm using "created by" since there is no other option to my knowledge to search by whom the PO is currently sitting with.

What has the creator of the PO to do with the requestor? Requestor is usually the person who needs the material, this can be identical to the requisitioner of even a different person. The requestor could be entered in the PR and PO account assignment tab.

No , there is no enduser transaction to search POs based on the person who last changed this PO

But you can get it by using the report RSSCD100, enter object class EINKBELEG and your user ID of the person who did the change.

thanks for this Jürgen, but I think I really am confusing the terms. What happens in our company is, that the creator usually is the requestor. Since people leave the company the orignial creator is no longer in charge of the PO and the PO gets updated, so that the current requestor is the person responsible for it now. So I guess, what I'd really want to do is to search for POs by their current requestor, so see who is currently responsible for the ordered materials.

Is this kind of search somehow possible?

Thanks so much for your help.

I actually answered your question already right above by the mentioned report RSSCD100

Also your entire concept seems not really to follow the usual industry practice. In most companies the purchasing group is actually an individual and not a group (otherwise it would not really matter who in the group is a successor of someone else from the group). So the successor either overtakes the existing purchasing group (which gets renamed then) or he gets his own purchasing group and is still able to select old POs based on the purchasing group of his predecessor.
