Info Update flag

The business wants this flag switched off so that a PO cannot be created without an info record already in place by a separate pricing team. I am doing the config to make sure this flag always defaults to blank for all buyers/all po types etc.

I have updated the Default values for buyers in OMFI to Blank because I want this field to default to blank on PO create. We had three default groups set up so I set all to blank.

However when I create a PO this field still auto defaults to "A" - is ticked, despite all defaults being blank. So I updated my user profile with parameter EVO and one of the defaults and this time it worked - PO created with info update = blank.

My question is as I want the Info update to default to blank for ALL the buyers ALL the time do I really have to get the parameter EVO added to their profiles? Is there any other way to do it without this parameter? We have three defaults set up by previous consultant to me but I checked and all three are identical. If we only had one default, would this take away the need to update the parameter? I dont think we need three in the first place.

Please help!

    Hello KM,

    You can created a profile with blank key (instead of the 2 characters) in IMG.

    A blank profile name (T160V-EVOPA without value) is used for all users by default.

    Other way is using t.code SU10 to mass maintain parameters for users.

    I have a faint idea but not sure, but one can always give it a try.

    In the NBF Field slection key for the Standard PO in SPRO in Table T162 you can set the attributes of the infoupdate indicator to Display mode.In other words ,there would not be any INFOUPDATE I.E (When you create a PO for an item which does not have any Info record) there would be no creation of the Inforecord.

    PATH SPRO>Purchasing>Purchase Order>Define Screenlayout>NBF

    Thanks in advance if it worked,

      Does anyone know what other parameters are used for this default settings for buyers (OMFI) to work eg for purchase requisitions because EVO is for Purchase Orders. I would like to check the setup of the users profiles first to see which default settings are currently being used.

      I am thinking i might just delete the PBXX condition instead so that it cannot be used in this way and a PO requires a PB00 price to exist to be saved.
