    Hi Abjheet

    it is a structure field, MEPO1211-BEDNR

    The requirement tracking number thus enables you to group together the purchasing documents that exist for a certain material requirement. so please check if it takes takes from material text.

    Hope it helps.

      Hello shivkumar,

      This purchase order is for services hence there is no material so how can i check in the material text. As per your reply i had checked the service text but its fine. please tell me other possibilities.

    the requirements number is just a text field in the purchase requisition and purchase order which could be used to enter a reference to an external (usually paper) document.

    this number is then copied over from the requisition to the purchase order when the purchase order is created or can be entered directly in the PO, which was probably the case as you are saying that the field is not maintained in the PR. However, I would suggest to check the change log to be sure that it was not removed in the PR after the PO was created.

    If there was no change then you have to ask the user who created the PO if he had entered it.

    If that was not the case, check the change logs of the PO whether someone else changed it after the creation, then there are not many options left and it has to be assumed that is comes from a faulty program logic in a BAdI or user exit.
