Is it possible to link a SO to a PO

Hello,

When a Sales Order comes in, the exact same product will be ordered at the vendor with a PO to keep the stock at the same point . Is it possible to link the SO to the PO (or PR) so that they only have to fill in the vendor?

    It is not possible after the fact.

    Basically you need to decide for your business process whether you fulfill a customer order from stock or by external order.

    you then create either a third-party order to get the material delivered directly from vendor to customer

    or you do a make-to-order process, speak using sales order stock, and your purchase order will have the sales order as an account assignment and the receipt is posted as special stock specific for this sales order

    or you do a standard order and have no link to a sales order in the beginning. If you use batch management and create individual batches per receipt then the batch can be used as a link between sales order and purchase order, as you know from the goods issue movement which batch was used and you can lookup the goods receipt movement of this batch and from there you have the reference to the PO.
