    Hi,

    The types of PO depends on business scenario.

    Basically, in Standard SAP 1.Standard PO(NB).2.Framework PO(FO).3.Stock Transfer Order(UB)

    Contract(MK,WK) & Scheduling Agreement(LP,LPA) are longer term PO's.

    You can read any SAP MM material reg this.U can define your own doc type.

    Hope you are clear.

    Regards,

    Smitha

    Hi Raghul,

    It could not be possible to me or any one to explain you the types of po. Because the Types of po depends on Business Process and clients Requirement.

    It Differs from Client to client and one business process to another.

    Any how Standard SAP has provided some standard Document types which are given below:

    NB Stnadard Purchase Orders

    UB STO which is used for Stock Transport order only

    FO Framework order which is used in Blanket po / limits po

    WK & MK for Contract

    LP & LPA for Schediling Agreements.

    It seems you are totally new to SAP mm. Please go thru the Web sites so that you will get some idea abot mm.

    hi,

    the below link is for the process of creation of PO.

    [http://help.sap.com/saphelp_46c/helpdata/en/fd/45b7ee9d6411d189b60000e829fbbd/frameset.htm]

    now the basic thing is that po types defines as per the client requirement.

    there are several po types are:

    standard type po

    frame work type

    contract type

    schedule agreement type

    dummy/duplicate po

    stock transfer po

    as per client's specific type

    these is is the overview of it.now below u can find the details idea of procedurs:

    Definition

    A purchase order is a formal request or instruction from a purchasing organization to a vendor or a plant to supply or provide a certain quantity of goods or services at or by a certain point in time.

    Structure

    A purchase order (PO) consists of a document header and a number of items.

    The information shown in the header relates to the entire PO. For example, the terms of payment and the delivery terms are defined in the header.

    A procurement type is defined for each of the document items. The following procurement types exist:

    • Standard

    • Subcontracting

    • Consignment

    • Stock transfer

    • External service

    Delivery of the total quantity of material (or performance of the total volume of services) specified in a purchase order item can be spread over a certain period in a delivery schedule, consisting of lines indicating the individual quantities with their corresponding planned delivery dates.

    For PO items to be supplied by subcontractors, you can specify the necessary input materials or components that are to be provided to the subcontractor for assembly or processing in respect of each delivery date stipulated.

    An item of the procurement type "external service" contains a set of service specifications. The latter can be hierarchically structured. The summary view of such a hierarchical structure is referred to as an outline. The outline comprises a number of levels, each representing a level of the service hierarchy. The order quantities are set out in service lines, representing individual jobs or activities. Value limits are specified instead of service lines for services or work that initially cannot be specified precisely.

    If services covered by an already existing contract are released (ordered, or called off against the contract), the PO item can contain a value limit relating to the contract in question.

    feel free to ask.

    rewards, if helpful.

    bst rgds,

    rajesh
