    Hi Nilson,

    About your query regarding the config settings for classic scenario for generating docs. in backend ECC, There are two settings you need to maintain

    1. SPRO > IMG > SRM > SRM Server > Cross Application Basic Settings > Define Objects in Back End system > Choose always External requirement & Purchase order if item data complete otherwise Purchase requisition for the required purchase group and category I.D

    2. SPRO > IMG > SRM > SRM Server > Sourcing > Define sourcing for product categories and choose "sourcing never carried out" for the desired category I.D

    With this once you create a shopping cart it either creates a P.R / P.O in the back end based on the completeness of data. The S.C will never be sent to Sourcing.

    And number ranges you have to maintain external number reanges in back end and internal umber ranges in SRM.

    In case of any further clarifications plz feel free to contact.

    Also reward points for suitable replies.

    In classical scenario,you can

    On approval, the system creates the follow-on document in a particular backend system based on the information you entered in Customizing for SRM Server. Depending on availability of the item or service you require, and on the settings you have entered in Customizing, this follow-on document may be a:

    Purchase order Purchase requisition Reservation

    It's in SPRO-SRM -Cross Application Basic settings-Define Objects in Backend System(Purch reqs, Reservations...........................)

    Hi Nilson,

    set the number range in SRM to internal and in ECC to external.

    Be sure that you use the same number range code in both systems.
