    Judging from your questions, I think you are planning to or have just attended some test or interview.

    Anyway, in PR release strategy can be determined at both header and item level because SAP considers PR items as standalone entities traditionally. PR header has been added as an afterthought. So SAP has designed for item level as well as overall release.

    On the other hand, a PO is a legal document and PO items are not standalone. So no release has been considered at item level.

    Hope this clarifies.

    Dear Chidanand,

    Where on earth did you get this information that PR release is not possible at header level in ECC?

      Hi Lakshman,

      Thanks for the notification.

      I appreciate your information on this. I mean to say if we define at the Header level we will not get the same at the item level.

      I face the same problem in ECC thats why I mention like this.

    Hi,

    Which version you are using right now in 4.6c/4.7/ECC.

    As of ECC version you cann't define the PR release strategy at the Header level, which has some drawbacks on that.

    You can define at the item level only.The reason behind this is

    In PR several line items can be included in PR and may be of the different value & different department also for the same material from the same vendor if you define at the Header level then total value will consider of all the line items so it is difficult to assign to who the concerned release codes.Individual User department can release at the item level.

    But in PO you will place the order to single vendor so if you define the release strategy at the header level ,because you are placing the PO to one vendor so the total value goes to the single vendor only. Thats why in PO it is at Header level.So any particular Purchasing department can release for the total value.
