No instance of object type PurchaseOrder has been created. External referen

Hi Friends,

We are on SRM 5.0 SP11, R/3 4.7 backend.

When we try to create a PO manually in SRM PO doesnot get created, but we get this error message in application monitors of RZ20 - "No instance of object type PurchaseOrder has been created. External reference: "

I have looked at the note 973952 but this is not applicable for our system.

any help on this ???

Regards,

Kumar

    Hi. That is the standard error message from the PO create BAPI in R/3 when it fails to create a PO. There is normally another error generated as well that explains the real issue.

    Was there not another error in the monitors underneath this error about the same cart?

    Regards,

    Dave.

    Hi,

    Check the Tcode BBP_PD for the error message.

    If you don't find any error message there try to push the PO manually to ERP system using the FM : BBP_PD_PO_TRANSFER_EXEC

    and than check again in Tcode RZ20 and BBP_PD for the error message. I hope you will get the required information for the error message.

    Regards

    • Hi. Did you get the exact same erros with ECPO?

      It also said originally that item category blank was not allowed with doc type ECPO.

      If you try ECPO you must also attach item category blank to it in the document type config. Just copy NB and the dependant entries is the easiest way.

      Regards,

      Dave.

    Assume you are working in ECS.

    Have you activated trans type of PO in SPRO

    Path:

    SRM IMG >SRM>SRM server >Cross-Application Basic Settings>Define Transaction Types-->select BUS2201 PO -->tras tyee in dialog structure -->here check whether your desired trans type is active

    In details of the same

    check you have given internal no range (and defined in other node)

    B trans cat=BUS2201

    Hi Kumar

    Have you maintained transaction type of manual creation of PO as ECPO in Org structure(Attribute DP_PROC_TY)?

    If yes, then that is the cause of your problem.Change this value to ZEC and try to create a new PO manually.Hopefully your problem should get resolved.

    Thanks
