    hi,

    follow this link:

    http://help.sap.com/search/highlightContent.jsp

    You create a blanket PO for the desired validity period.

    · The PO need not contain any service specifications.

    · You set a value limit.

    · Service entry and acceptance are unnecessary. During the validity period of the purchase order, incoming invoices are posted directly with reference to the PO, provided that the value limit is not exceeded.

    hope this may help you,

    Regards,

    Srinivas

    Hi,

    During the validity period of the purchase order, incoming invoices are posted directly with reference to the PO, provided that the value limit is not exceeded.A blanket purchase order contains a value limit and is valid for a predefined period.The blanket purchase orders Document typr(FO),(item category B), (Acc.Ass. Cat.K or U) enables you to procure a variety of consumable materials or services from a vendor up to a predefined value limit.Blanket purchase order enable you to procure low-value items quickly, easily, and efficiently, so no GR required as we have validity period & value limit .

    Hope helpful.

    Well Abbas,

    In a blanket PO, it is not necessary to accept or record the goods delivery or services performed, which is why individial items procured have their respective account assignments.

    You might receive an invoice physically from the vendor which you enter in the system.

    I haven't done an ERS with a blanket PO, however assuming that it is possible, The invoice is entered immediately. The payment doesnot need to be delayed as there is no qty dependency here. it is either value or time limit.

    If the individual items have their own Acct assignments, it should reflect the changes while payment, which is one way you know.

    Dear Abbas,

    We use Blanket PO for low value item & for consumable material or services.

    It is a general practice in all organization that whenever Invoice is received from vendor before it is posted against Blanket PO a confirmation is taken from user department or cost center person whether the goods are received or services are performed as per the invoice submitted by vendor & once it is confirmed then invoice is posted.

    Reward if you find answer satisfactory,

    Regards,
