How do you intimate Vendor about the PO creation in SAP? Is it via interface IDOC /EDI or some other mechanism of output message email etc? Next how do vendor confirm about goods to be delivered? ASN idoc etc.

for that specific One side you need to suppress the cancelled line item,that mens PO changed,so change output should not carry that message to the vendor.

2nd you need to write some custom validation for inbound ASN, so that vendor if by mistake sends those items,which are cancelled,then ASN fails to process inside SAP.

need to know the architecture around communication method between SAP end Vendor for better clarity.

strange requirement - in other words

You send an order with 2 items to your vendor

then you cancel the 2nd item and don't want to tell this to your vendor.

What evidence do you have that your vendor knows about that cancellation? What can you legally you do if you your vendor still sends the item?

Hi Jurgen Sir,

I agree. but this is for specific Purchase Organization and they are intimating using Mail and they are not interested in SAP to send update to Vendor. i have searched and googled. but not finding answer. Thanks for the Quick reply,

if you do not want to send changes at all then look into the fine tune of message customizing

If it is only for cancellations then you can try to exclude EKPO-STATU from print-relevant changes.


Thanks Sir.
