    Please go thru the below Release Procedure and check whether you have maintained all the settings properly.


    The release code is a two-character ID allowing a person to release (clear, or approve) a requisition or an external purchasing document. The release codes is basically controlled via a system of authorizations (authorization object M_EINK_FRG).

    Use SE12, structure CEBAN to check all the fields available for controlling the Purchase Requisition.

    e.g. If the total Item value for the Purchase Requisition exceeds 10,000, release strategy 01 is assigned to the Purchase Requisition. There is only one characteristic created in this example. For controlling the Purchase Requisition type, create characteristic for CEBAN-BSTYP and the value NB.

    CT04 - Create Characteristic e.g. NETVALUE

    Click Additional data Table name CEBAN Field name GSWRT and press enter

    (for currency dependent field, you are prompt to enter the currency which the system then converts the currency of the Purchasing document into this currency)

    In the Basic data (X refers to tick),

    X Mutliple values

    X Interval values

    In the Value data, in the Char. value column, type >10000 and press enter

    Save your data

    CL02 - Class

    Class - Create REL_PUR

    Class type - 032

    Click Create

    Description - Release Procedure for Purchase Requisition

    In the Same Classification section, click Check with error

    In the Char. (characteristic) tab, type NETVALUE to assign your characteristics to the class

    OMGS - Define Release Procedure for Purchase Requisition Type

    Release Group - New entries Rel. Object Class Description

    01 REL_PUR Rel. Strategy for PR

    Release codes - New entries

    Grp Code

    01 01

    Release indicators

    Release indicators Release Description

    0 Blocked

    1 X Release

    Release Strategy

    Release group 02

    Rel.strategy 01

    Release codes 01

    Release status 01

    Classification Choose your check values

    OMGSCK - Check Release Strategies

    (make sure there are no error messages)

    Once the Purchase Requisition is not release, You cannot make Purchase Order.

    The person with the release authorization have to use ME54N / ME55 to release the Purchase Requisition.

    Try to release the SAME purchase requistion through ME54N through the same user ID. Dont save the PR. see whether you are able to do so.

    I think there is some object level authorisation missing.

    If it is so then take a SU53 screen shot and send it to the basis.

    Thanks & Regards,
