    Hi

    for that PR No take the release startegy field , and pass that release strategy field to<b> T161F</b> table you will get the Release code (FRGAB)

    for this field take the description/text(nothing but the approver) from the table <b>T161E</b>, which gives the approver.

    like

    FRGAB FRGTX

    01 Freigabestelle 1

    <b>10 Manager

    20 Controller</b>ZG Geoff's Release code

    Reward points if useful

    Regards

    Anji

    Hi Bobby,

    For example, PR 10002620

    (1) Browse table CDHDR (Change document header), specify:

    Change doc. Object = BANF

    Object value = PR number (remember to add first 2 zeros) i.e. 0010002620

    Transaction = ME54N (release manually) and/or ME55 (collective release)

    The result showing the user who has run transaction ME54N and/or ME55 for the PR, then user may be the approver of the PR. If multiple records found for a particular PR, it may be approve/reject several times. You may only extract the latest record.

    (2) Because transaction ME54N can either approver or reject PR, it is necessary to further check table CDPOS (Change document items), specify:

    Change doc. Object = BANF

    Document number = <found in step (1)>

    Table Name = EBAN (Purchase Requisition)

    Field Name = FRGKZ (Release Indicator)

    In the result, if field FRGKZ (Release Indicator) changed from Old value 'X' (blocked) to New value '2' (PO creation allowed), we know that the user found in step (1) is the PR approver.

    Regards,

    Donald
