We would like to assign a newly created purchase request in SAP ByD to an already existing purchase order (status "send"). Is this possible?

This association is not possible in ByD, and I would want to question why you would want to?

In my opinion if the system is generating PR for material or services already on a PO there is something wrong with the planning process?

Dear John,

thanks for your feedback. It´s a customers requirement from a central service procurement department where they purchase software licenses for the year and want to track in one PO what licenses they ordered (for which users etc.). in their current working mode they use one PO for this purpose and extend per line time over the year. It´s not related to stock materials or results from planning. We´ll have to look for a workaround.

thanks, now I understand.

Maybe look at using purchasing contracts to do this. Create the contract at the start of the year with the target value/qty in and then you can allocate PO's to the contract as you consume licences.

Benefit of this is the automated allocation of supplier to the PO and notifications when your reaching end of contract (either time,quantity or value)
