    Hi Vishnu

    If I have understood your problem, you want that the release status should not change with change in company code in your PO.

    Set Changable Indicator as "2 - Changeable, no new determination of strategy" in your release indicator.

    Hi,

    Do you have the company codes as your charectistics then remove the company code from the charecteristics.

    If not add the charecteristics with the company codes where you want to activate the release strategy.

    Reward if usefull.

      Hi Vishnu,

      Yes you have to create the Company code as one of the Characteristics for Release strategy and then exclude the Company code (that don't need to activate the release strategy) from the Characteristics value.

      One more thing you need to include this Company code characteristics in all your other Release strategies.

      So when you create the Purchasing documents with that particular Company code the release strategy tab will not trigger in the document.

      Keep in mind the Controlling area doesn't have any impact on your release strategy, no worry on that go on proceed.

      Then your problem will be solved.

    Hi,

    Basically the Release Strat have Characteristics. Now these characteristics are defined for the variable you want to catch hold for release strat to be applied. If you want a company code specifiic rel strat you can have a characterstic mentioning the company code reference for Rel strat to be applicable.

    You can have various combinations of characteristics for release stratto be applied.

    Hi,

    As per my understand regarding your question.

    You have created company code as Characteristics and included in the Release procedure.

    Now you want to remove 1 company code from that release procedure.

    What I suggest you is just remove the characteristics from that Release strategy and don't delete that release strategy (Otherwise it will be problem to Old Purchase document where this release strategy is activated)

    Just remove one characteristics from that release strategy which will become dummy for further documents.

    Copy the same release strategy(which is going to deactivate) and create new release strategy from that and in that release strategy remove the 1 company code which you don't want to include in the characteristics value then in future release strategies this company code will not appear .

    Hope you understand, if not come back with clear question.
