PO history in ME23N

I have a request from a user that seems like it should work. But, I am obviously missing something.

We are on ECC 5.0. On the PO history tab, we see the corresponding GR's and invoices. There is also a column labeled "Reference". For the invoices, one would think this would populate with the vendor's reference number. But, the field is blank.

When I look at the help for this field, it implies that it should display the vendor's reference number. How do I get the data to appear there so that users do not have to drill down into each invoice to get the reference number?

    Hi,

    Yes I also checked ..the reference data is not appearing during ME23N, even though the layout has "ALL".

    Even No specific OSS notes.

    I will update..

    Thanks,

      As I stated before, we do not populate the delivery note field. The field would not be related to the vendor reference number. Not all of our lines require a GR.

      A user requested a way to see the vendor reference number associated with the invoices easier than having to drill down into each invoice document on the PO history tab.

    Determined that it is not possible to incorporate the vendor's invoice reference on the PO history with our current practice.

    HI, the filed Reference in PO history is use for the scenario:

    When you post a GI , a materails ODC generated , eg 5600000001

    and the you cancel the 560000001, and the 560000002 generated

    and the history show the follow screen:

    Materail DOC Reference

    560000002 5600000001

    560000001 blank

      I understand. However, we do not require a GR on everything and the delivery note field is not normally populated. I was hoping we could use the column for the vendor invoice reference when the invoice is posted. This would save the user time so that they would not have to click on each invoice to see the vendor's reference number. Going into FBL1N would not be the solution because that would show every invoice. A user is interested in a particular PO and the history for that PO.
