SRM New field in SC not showing up

Hi guys,

I have been following an old guide ( https://blogs.sap.com/2012/03/22/add-custom-field-to-sc-and-powl/) to add a field to POWL but it doesn't work in my case.

It is required to add the "Supplier product number" to the layout.

Since it's an existing field, I thought it was simple. But it's not the case. Following the guide, the field required is in the structure "/SAPSRM/S_POWL_RESULT_SC_ITM", so no need to add it.

Next, in SPRO, Adjust POWL Layout, Search Criteria, and Pushbuttons, I added the field to different feeders (because it didn't work for any of the feeders I found, I thought it wasn't the right one .. so I played with all of them)

a) 2018-03-14-11-42-38-change-view-field-catalog-deta.png

b) 2018-03-14-11-43-20-change-view-field-catalog-deta.png

c) 2018-03-14-11-44-09-change-view-field-catalog-deta.png

After this, the next step is to check in program POWL_D01 the query that might be cached for this layout and to delete the cache. I deleted all the cache data related to the queries "SAPSRM_FEEDER_SC*" and the result is ...

The field is nowhere to be seen in my layout.

Could you point me into the right direction ?

Regards,

Marius

    Hi Marius,

    I believe you've been going through this guide, right?

    Can you please also check whether last steps of the following file help you or no? Custom field in SC step 3 talks about how to add this field as column to the item overview.

    Thank you!

    Hi Marius,

    I tested the scenario in our internal system and it worked. I appended the structure, I added the field in POWL customizing and I ran report POWL_D01. Afterwards the field appeared in POWL.

    First we need to make sure that the relevant customizing is modified and that the report deletes the relevant query. For this, please identify the relevant Query and POWL Type using the following Wiki page https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/x/RYDkG.

    Afterwards check, if the relevant POWL Type was modified and try to delete the query cache once more for the relevant query. If it still doesn't work, please create a detailed description about all of your steps.

    Best regards,

    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    The requirement is to add a new field in the SC layout and PO layout. Here is an example:

    2018-03-29-10-41-45-document1-word.png

    So I followed the bread crumbs and I found out that the type of the column I need is from "/SAPSRM/WDC_DODC_PO_I_BD" view "V_PO_DODC_I_BD" - /SAPSRM/S_CLL_PO_ITEMS-PARTNER_PROD:

    2018-03-29-10-53-40-define-context-binding.png

    With this info I navigated to SPRO > SAP Supplier Relationship Management -> SRM Server -> Cross-Application Basic Settings -> Extensions and Field Control (Personalization) -> Configure Customer Fields -> Define Customer Fields on Item Level -> Append for Customer Cross-Document Item Database Fields which takes me to DB structure "INCL_EEW_PD_ITEM_CSF" where I found that I already have an append structure "ZSRM_EEW_PD_ITEM_CSF". Here I added my new field

    PARTNER_PROD TYPE BBP_PARTNER_PROD

    But I get the error that it already exists there.

    So I go to the next step: Append for Customer Fields on Shopping Cart Item, where I'm navigated to the structure where I still find an existing custom Z structure and I append my field to it. When I try to activate I get the same error message that the field is there already.

    So I go further: Configure Field Control -> Configure Control for Fields on Item Level -> Metadata for Fields on Item Level and I add the filed for both Shopping cart and Purchase Order BUS's.

    After all this, I still don't find my field in the layout:

    2018-03-29-11-16-36-display-purchase-order.png

    So I said that it might not be the right option and I started with the other way in the same guide "Add the field in result list" bit with the same result ... no field in the layout.


    Could you advise please ?

    Regards,
    Marius
