    YES! It is possible!

    Step 1:

    VOV6: In the schedule line cat. (standard is CB), you can set the PR order type, PR item cat, and PR account assignment cat.

    Step 2:

    VOV7: In the corresponding item cat., you need to turn on the "Create PO Automatic." checkbox.

    Step 3:

    BD86: Configuration & Data consistency checks. This transaction help you to check if you have any setting / data missing for the system to create PO automatically.

    You need to set the default PO order type under your Sales Org. in IMG.

    Also, you need to have a purchase info record, so the system can set the vendor and purchasing price in the PR and PO automatically.

    Please reward points if helpful. Good luck.

    Best regards,

    Chris

    In Schedule Line Category CS,Purchase Order Document Type NB is assigned.Thats why Purchase Requisition will be created automatically in the system.Then MRP Run will be done through Transaction Codes MD02 and MD04..Then we have to create Purchase Order..This is the standard transaction flow of Third Party in SAP.Automatic Purchase Order creation is not possible in Standard SAP.If ur requirement is like that u can take help of ur ABAPers..

    Currect me if iam wrong..

    Regards..

    Dear Prabudh Tiwari,

    You can do this through Schedule line category config setting in SD. Herein you need to specify

    1) The Purchase Requistion (PR) document type.

    2) Also you need to specify the relevant "Account assignment category"

    3) Mention the item category type (Normally it is 5-Third party item)

    The above settings will enable a PR to be triggered in background when a sales order is created and saved. PO will have to be created by referencing the PR and it will not be able to create P.O. automatically in standard third-party order process in SAP.

    Reward points if useful.

    Regards,
