Hi I am creating a return PO using ME21N and flaging the indicator return.

But can anybody tell me that how we can setup a link between the original PO number to this PO. Also I am able to create the return PO of as many quantity as I want irrespective of what is the original PO quantity.

Please help

    Hi Lekhram,

    Please find that a Return PO is just like a original PO with a Return Indicator Flagged On. So you can not cross refer on PO with another. Moreover Ref. Purchasing Doc field can be used to bring the Data on the new PO creation from Original PO but you can store for Infomation point of view at Tracking Number or at Header level as explained by earlier consultants.

    And you can create a PO for as many Items as you want it doenst matter becuase it is not impacing from Financial Point of view or from Inventory Point of View. What is more important is the second step. ME20 in which you are providing or creating the return delivery for that PO it will not find that much of material in system and will only allow as much quantity as you have.

    So there are check point on that.

    But a RO is not having any link to Original PO.

    On the other hand you can do a 122 Movement against that PO and then you can have a Link between the Original PO and the Return PO.

    So the way your business wants you can go ahead.

    Cheers!

    I am not sure if this will help or not, but by scrolling in the Item Detail Screen (to the right), there is a Reference PO Document Number and Line Item. Once you suply the correct PO and line, it will bring in the Quantity for you. This does not prevent you from Overwriting the Quantity.

    Sorry, I just used the Drop Down Box in the Field to lookup a PO based upon the Material Number. I am unaware of any link.

    if you only want the old PO number for your refrence in the return PO, you can use the tracking no field in the PO line item so that you can also create the PO report based on tracking no which gives you the return PO number witth the Original PO.

    hope this will solve your problem.

    Hi,

    I think you cannot have link b/w original PO to return PO.Try to put in header text in return PO.

    Thanks
