PO Change - all line items to vendor not just the changed line item

Hello,

We are trying to understand when changes are made to a PO already sent to the vendor how do we send a new PO with all line items on it, not just the changed line item(s). We are on ECC 6.0 EHP 6. We have PO versioning turned on.

What happens now :

1. Create a PO with 4 line items.

2. Release the PO and automatically email it to the vendor as a PDF attachement.

3. Change the PO to delete one line item (item 3). A new version is generated (version 1).

4. After saving the PO a new email is sent to the vendor but it only has line item 3 on it indicating that line item 3 is cancelled.

This behavior seems very misleading to the vendor. Unless the gather all versions of the PO and compare them sequentially, they will be confused about what we want to order at any point in time.

What we want is whenever a new version of a PO is generated, all line items are included on the new PO version sent to the vendor with the ones that are deleted still visible but flagged/annoted as deleted, and the ones that are changed still on there and annotated as changed.

We have found this SDN post from seven years ago, but the solution offered doesn't seem to be available to us as we have no column "M" (

IMG > Material Mngmt > Purchasing > Messages > Output ctrl > Mess determ

schemas > Define mess sche for PO > Assign schema to PO

At this, unmark column "M". This makes only to printout the whole message

and not the modification).

We appreciate any help you can offer.

Thanks,

John

Are there any other thoughts out there?

Surely we cannot be the only ones from SAP's enormous customer base that wants to send all the line items on a PO when a change to one or more is made instead of just the changed line items.

As M is directly next on the keyboard to N ....I would then give this a try or at least I would do a F1 field help on any of the 8 columns

Hi Jurgen,

Thanks for the input. I did try both options for the N flag (checked and unchecked) but still got the same result. I also tried the options in the "Fine Tuned control" section with both variations of the N flag. I did also read the F1 help for all available options in both the "Assign schema to PO" and "Fine Tuned control" sections of the IMG, but nothing seems to be related to what we are trying to do.

Surely we cannot be the only ones from SAP's enormous customer base that wants to send all the line items on a PO when a change to one or more is made instead of just the changed line items.

Thanks,

John
