How is an Approved Purchase Requisition getting updated without any warning; from Sales Order

Hello All,

We have Spare parts sales which is similar to Third Party sales where we have configured automatic PR creation from sales order line item by maintaining order type in Schedule Line categories (vov6)

This PR is then subjected to Workflow approval and then once approved in used for PO creation.

Now the issue comes, when i add one more line item in sales order and save.

"The new line item is added in PR but the release strategy is not triggered." In this case business can create a PO again wrt to this PR with new quantities which is auto-approved. (wrong process)

Now as I understand, adding a line item in PR from sales order is coming from configuration (schedule lines) and my MM consultant told me that an approved PR cannot be modified (without cancelling release strategy) is also standard.

Can anyone suggest me why SAP is not generating any error or warning when updating sales order?? Or any solution other than custom error messages?? (oss notes)

Thanks and Regards,

Thanks a lot Jurgen.

However, it says that "a new release strategy determination takes place if there is a modification of the data in the external application."

This is not happening. Even when we add a new sales order line item, the PR is only updated with this new line item but no release strategy is triggered.

is something missing from MM side?

Unless you tell details about your strategy and order it is hard to tell anything.

Is your strategy at item level or is it a overall strategy?


your strategy is for a value < 5000

your initial sales order item has just a value of 1000 and was approved.

you add a new item with a value of 2000. so you are still below 5000 and no new release would be needed.

If it is an item strategy then of course the release strategy should kick in for this item, if ....if the information in the requisition matches with the values defined in the classification of your strategy.
