A blank field will not make the requested quantity go away. At the end it is an entry, either overwriting the blank or overwriting the proposal. And if the user does not know the original quantity, how can he then decide whether to close the requisition even he ordered less or to keep the requisition open. If he does not do this decision the the requisition just stays open with the remaining quantity.

I would rather analyze why you have requisitions with different quantities as expected or as needed.

Or why you order different quantities as needed, as it may be too less to start a a production. Or may trigger your customer to select a different vendor who is able to supply him with the quantity he wants.

Sometimes understanding the situation and maybe only amending settings in customizing or just in master data may already make developments obsolete.

My exact requirement is after generation of PO I need to edit it and add pr reference field to it, but because of this setting my PO's quantity is overwritten by open pr quantity...

And you think that this will change if you make the PO quantity input field display as blank?

This requirement becomes even more confusing now as you tell that the PO already exists.

Maybe you should tell your story from the very beginning. Explaining why someone creates a PO without PR, why then a PR is created with a different quantity and why this needs to be added to the existing PO, and why you can't just follow the standard process of MRP run -> PR > ME57 > PO

Dear Mrs. Sepideh, Mr. Jurgen

I have the same problem mentioned here. In my case, the POs are created automatically as the replenishment element of kanban, with reference to a contract. Since supply planning team in our company working with PR quantity, we have to enter the PR number in POs manually.

The ex qty of PO are changed due to open quantity of PR but there is no need to this change.

I have also tried the customizing >> MM >> Purchasing >> environment data >> define default values for buyers >> fast processing >> uncheck the fields adopt all,

but it's not working.

would you mind suggesting any other customizing to resolve this?

best regards.

You have not shared the specific business requirement as to why you want the PO to be created without any quantity. Try saving the PO without any quantity by pressing "HOLD" button.

Hi,

I don't want to save the PO without any quantity, I just don't need the default quantity in the PO that is reference to PR because in one type of PO we always should use a fix quantity and this reference may cause the user choose a wrong quantity...

It's a facility to provide the correct quantity during PO creation to avoid user mistake.

If you do not want the facility, then go for your own development by using badi.

Hi,

Can you elaborate exact business need? Then we can suggest suitable solution. Ideally when PO is created with respect to PR, PR is getting updated with PO quantity and hence user knows how much PR is getting converted.
