Formatted Search and "copy To" Function

I have created a Formatted Search on the document field series (delivery) that picks up the country from BP and sets the right series. This all works fine but something else is also happening:

When I use the "copy To" Function in the base document (order) the formatted Search in the target document (delivery) will not be executed and therefore the series will not be set correctly. Is this a bug? Exists a workarraound?

I use the version 2007 PL08.

Thanks for your help

Gert

    The problem arises from the fact that the system does not see any changes after the Copy to function. You may think it an error, but SAP will not. (The system behaves this mode on Pl 15 too.)

    If there is a field on the delivery the user should change, you can connect the FMS to it. Else you should prescribe using Shft –F2.

    Gert,

    As Istvan has rightly pointed the FMS is not get trigerring when you do a Copy to?

    The suggession is to only use Copy from (is this works) and if you are going to need to use Copy to then the user has to manually press Shift+F2 to refresh the Series.

    Can I know on which field have you set the Auto Refresh for this FMS?

    I still think it's a bug/flaw. We got the run around from support with suggestions to trigger on some other field like the suggestions above. I'm working on a client on 2005a SP01 PL42 and I've seen the issue even earlier than this patch. We ended up handling this as part of a small add-on because this functionality had to work reliably and we could not depend on the users to always use the Copy From. Plus, you can save a lot of time by having an alert with let's say orders that are ready to be delivered or invoiced, and all the user has to do is drill into the alert to open the order and copy to invoice, rather than figuring out the customer code on the invoice to use the copy from button.

    You could open a ticket... maybe you'll have better luck. I still think this functionality should be consistent on either direction of the flow.
