PS - Set Commitment only for Purchase order

Hi experts,

I would like to know if its possible set in the Customizing, the Commitment just for Purchase Order.

Because, currently we have fixed Purchase Requisition and Purchase Order.

Thanks in advance.

Nacho

    Hi,

    SAP Note:955107 addresses this problem. You may refer the note, but for easy reference, relevant portios of the note are quoted below:

    Quote begins:

    Symptom

    The purchase requisition commitment should not be taken into account in the availability control.

    How can this be achieved?

    Reason and Prerequisites

    This is a customer request.

    It should be possible to enter purchase requisitions with any amount and only the resulting purchase orders should be checked by an availability control.

    Solution

    For Releases 4.6C, 4.70, 5.00 and 6.00 first implement the corrections from Note 955106 if you have not already done this.

    Afterwards proceed as follows.

    1. Create a utility program ZBPFCI21 of the 'Subroutine Pool' type. For the source code of the program refer to the attached correction instruction 488705.

    Caution: Do not use a different name than ZBPFCI21.

    2. Adjust the source code within the utility program ZBPFCI21 as follows:

    When the residual order plan should not be included in the assigned value of the availability control, activate the line

    CLEAR cd_flag_pr_commitment_avac.

    (That is, delete the sign '*' in front of the line.)

    3. Save and activate the ZBPFCI21 utility program.

    4. Reconstruct the assigned values of the availability control (Transactions KO31 for orders or CJBN for projects).

    Quote ends.

    Kindly acknowledge, if it meets your requirement.

      I don't think this will make the system ignore the commitments completely.

      In this case PR Commitments are not included in Availability Control alone. As per standard, PR's against a WBS would still be treated commitments and would appear in report
