one output is getting generated that is for the first time , but after some time one another output gets generated while there is no changes found in that time (when the second output was generated ).

could you please share possible reasons why these kind of ambiguous behaviour is faced . and how to fix or analyze this issue .

    Hi Sir,

    Thanks for your input ,

    But what happens actually is this is generated automatically by batch without any change in the PO .

    can you share some of the possible cases .

    basically the output type is maintained as 4 (trigger immediately).

    but these type of outputs that i am talking about having output type 1 (send with periodical job)

    don't know from where this(output type ) is being picked

    for 4 i can say this is maintained in NACE table ,

    but where this 1 is getting picked ?

    any way to check this ?

    am i missing something ?

    Thanks and regards

    Hi Sir ,

    Here you go!

    i have updated the snaps

    check the medium and time

    the Po was created on 1.08.2017 at 9:17

    it was triggered immediately that's ok . but check the other one (above)

    i don't even know why the other output is also generated , that was not visible at the first time

    even i dont know when the 2nd output was triggered by me and when i generate the output type .

    this is the NACE maintenance view .

    this is maintained at vendor level as per the configuration .

    am i missing something ?

    please let me know in case you need any further input.

    Thanks

    Regards

    Hi All,

    and one more thing i would like share ,

    in case there is any change for which there is no change log present in that case also the output gets triggered with output type 4 not with 1.

    Hi Jurgen,

    thanks for your input,

    yeah i checked that tcode that you provided ,

    ME9F tcode belongs to the program RM06endr_alv that is included in our regular batch jobs ,

    what i wonder is

    1) if the manually change check box is playing any role to create this output.

    2) triggering data is 2 step process a) to create output b)then run that program (RM06ENDR_ALV) to process the output.

    3)what i strange is how this output gets generated when there is not any change then we can think of that TCODE or that program

    4) Do you think there is any output gets created by anyhow ? because after creating that PO user chakrsom that is me did not made any change , after some time this is triggered.. strange ! :(

    can you please explain this bit more.

    and on the top of it, is there is any special difference between RSNAST00 prg and RM06ENDR_ALV prog

    Thank you so much again

    Regards

    Can you share screens for both PO types?

    Are two separate layout designed for two PO with PO types( document types)

    check message condition record and are there any changes caused your concern!

    Check which PO message type set in "fine tuned" segment in customisation

    Nothing happens really by itself in SAP, anything has to be started by a user.

    You have to check the details of the messages in your PO (eventually via SE16 in table NAST) , have to compare the information in the messages to see where they are different, you also will see who created it and then you can ask the user.

    Look at your screenshot what I highlighted in green:

    Here you see that the message was manually changed (added) and by whom.

    This is not a data manipulation in any field and will not be logged in the PO header change history. Repeating a message output and changing the timing can be done from ME9F.
