    Hi Sudha,

    It is possible throgh SPRO>MM>PURCHASING>REL PROC FOR PO>RELEASE INDICATOR at Changeablity you select 1( Cannot be changed).

    Then the PO cannot be changed once it released.

    To do this for particular document type you have to create Document type ( Table CEKKO & Field BSART)as one of the characteristics using T code CT04 and in the release strategy give this changability indicator 1 only for that particular document type.

    if u need further quidance u r welcome. if it solves then reward for the information .

    I think it will not be possibel to stop changes after release

    but if any one changes the value or qty it will againg go to release

    that cna be done

    by putting the values in Release indicator for changable as 6 and give .01 %

    so that any changes in po done , po will go to release again

    reward if useful

    Hi Sudha,

    In release customizing for PO

    SPRO>MM>PURCHASING>REL PROC FOR PO>RELEASE INDICATOR

    Select option 1 one for release id after which you dont want any changes

    If this is applicable for perticular doc type create a new rel strategy with sepearte

    Release indicator and in class assign only that doc type as characterstics value.

    Apart from this you can also block ME22N for users through authorization

    for a perticular document type

    Hope this will help you to resolve your issue

    Dear Sudha

    Yes it is possible to confiquire your system insuch a way where once if the PO gets final relase then it cannot be changed.Only possiblity that will be available for the user to make chanegs in PO is possible when the final release is to be reset and then make the changes.

    Release Indicator: specicfies whether the PO documents is blocked or can be processed for the follow functions.

    You can define the release indicators you need for your release procedure:

    •The Released indicator is used to specify whether messages (PO documents in output format) may be transmitted for a purchase order with this indicator.

    •The Changeability indicator shows the effect of changes to the PO (a change to a PO may require a new release strategy to be determined, for instance).

    •By means of the Value change indicator, you can specify that the release strategy is to be re-started if a PO is changed and the value of a PO item thereby increases by a certain percentage (e.g. 10%). Set the Changeability indicator to "4 - Changeable, new release in case of new strategy or value change" or "6 - Changeable, new release in case of new strategy or value change/outputted" and enter a percentage in the Value change field.

    And after that you can specify release statuese where you can specify which release indicator/status a PO is to have after having been released via a certain release code.

    and after release simulation .

    Test for the PO change after final release System will not allow you tomake changes by giving the message that the release indicator doesnot allow you make the changes in PO.
