Create PO for direct material in backend

Hi everybody,

we're having troubles creating a PO for direct material in our backend system.

We're on EBP release 3.5.

We have tried the following:

(1) activate extended classic scenario.

this creates a PO in backend that not changeable, printable, especially we are not able to send an IDOC ORDERS02 to our suppliers.

(2) deactivate extended classic scenario.

with this setting it is not possible to create a PO in backend. The system tries to create a reservation.

Has anybody done anything like this before?

What would we have to do to create a PO in backend, that is changeable and can be sent as an IDOC?

Thank you for any suggestions,

kind regards, Kathrin Gutknecht.

    Hi Kathrin,

    The info. provided by you does not convey what exactly you are looking for, neverthless find below some of the observations.

    In case you wnat a P.O that is editable, printable in back end R/3 then you need to implement Classic Scenario instead of Extended Classic.

    If you implement Classic Scenario you could able to create / edit the P.O in back end. Depending upon your requirement you can either create a P.O or P.R in the back end and then convert that P.R to P.O.

    Once you create a shopping cart in SRM, based on the sourcing settings and the documents to be created in the back end system settings a P.R or a P.O will be created in R/3 which is editable in R/3.

    The confirmation (G.R) and Invoice can be made either in R/3 or in SRM.

    If you complete the entire cycle in R/3 right from creating P.O to Invoice only the status gets updated in SRM for that particular Shopping cart.

    Hope this makes you more clear. Clarifications are welcome.
