Hello community,

I have a Purchase Order which did not create a Sales order automatically. That is not a problem, I created the SO manually. The challenge is that I have to enter the corresponding Purchase order item number on all the lines manually and if there are a lot of lines, this can by quite cumbersome.

Do you know if it is possible to update this in one shot? How do you do it?

Thank you

Never heard about a process that creates a sales order from a purchase order, with the exception of EDI where a customer sends his purchase order to you and your SAP creates a sales order from it.

But if you create a sales order manually then you cannot expect that the purchase order number jumps in automatically. Why is this tiny purchase order information entry cumbersome when you create the entire sales order with all items manually?

Basically I think you should focus on the first problem, which was the creation of the sales order that did not happen automatically. Maybe solving this issue automatically resolves the issue with the PO number.

But anyway you may need to explain your process with some more words to make it understandable for all
