    This is possible by configuring your material master in such a way that the relevant item category is TAS. This item category has the create PO automatically button ticked on. Hence a PO will be created automatically when an order is created for a material whose item category in the order document becomes TAS.

    Reward point if it helps.

    Hi,

    Automatics PO generation is possible by configuring item category in VOV7.

    Create purchase order automatically

    If you activate this field, the system automatically generates both a purchase order requisition for third-party schedule lines as well as a purchase order in the background when you save the sales order. This function has been designed for Application Link Enabling (ALE) but you can also use it when working with distributed systems.

    To avoid errors caused by incorrect system settings, we recommend that you carry out the consistency checks for your third-party material. If you assign tasks 8097 (create)and 8114 (change) (by choosing "Extras -> Employee assignment -> Maintain"), you will receive workflow objects in your inbox, should any errors occur.

    Reward points if useful

    Dear Urendra,

    you can generate the purchase order directly from the sales order (ALE third-party process). Please indicate in the Customizing of item categories (transaction VOV7) the flag "Create PO automatic". You can use, as an example, the standard item category ALES in the standard system (not TAS).

    Please read also the FAQ note 550388, question 5 and note 550192, question 5. As additional info, please read the SAP notes 373971, 445451 and 210942. Here some typical problems of ALE third-party process are described in detail.

    I hope, this information will help you a little bit further.

    Kind regards,

      Dear Urendra,

      the comment above is correct. Please check this first. I hope, it will help.

      If not, please try to use ALES instead of ALEN and check, if it will work for ALES case. If it will not help, then may be one of the following SAP notes will help you more to understand the reason for the problem: 736526, 630141, 487220, 519974, 842368. These notes describe some typical problems during creation of the purchase order in the ALE third-party process. May be, they will help.

      I am sorry, it is really complicated to say what could be the reason for your problem without to see your system. But please try with the recommendations above first. May be they will help.

      Kind regards,
