    Dear,

    You can manage this via Purchase Order.

    In Purchase Order - ME21N, Item detail level Confirmations tab available.

    Maintain 0004 - Tracking Import in the filed of Confirmation Control.

    You can also active it in vendor master - XK01.

    Then you can maintain different status in this control.

    1) Acknowled. by Vendor

    2) Dispatched by Vendor

    3) Arrived at Port

    4) Clearence at Port

    5) Stocked at Port

    6) Dispatch. to Factory

    At last when you maintain status Dispatch. to Factory, at that time system allow u to create good receipt.

    Regards,

    Mahesh Wagh.

      Dear,

      Tracking Import.

      First enter XK01 - Create Vendor, in purchasing view you can assign Confirmation Control Key - 0004 - Tracking import.

      If vendor is already create, then enter XK02 - change vendor and maintain it in purchasing view.

      So at the time of purchase order creation - ME21N system take by default tracking import in purchase order -> Conformation tab -> confirmation control -> Tracking Import.

      You can maintain below mention status in Tracking Import,

      Acknowledge by Vendor

      Dispatched by Vendor

      Arrived at Port

      Clearance at Port

      Stocked at Port

      Dispatch. to Factory

      After maintain this you can map all process of import purchase.

      Exa: - If you purchase material from import market and you prepaid import purchase order - ME21N and maintain tracking import in purchase order.

      Then maintain vendor acknowledge when vendor receive your purchase order.

      You can maintain dispatch detail by vendor at the time of vendor dispatch etc.

      Due to this you can find out actual status of import purchase.

      If in your company tracking import is not activated.

      So you can config it with below path.

      SPRO - Materials Management - Purchasing - Purchase Order - Confirmations - Define External Confirmation Categories.

      Here you can define status of tracking import like

      Acknowledge by Vendor

      Dispatched by Vendor

      Arrived at Port

      Clearance at Port

      Stocked at Port

      Dispatch. to Factory.

      SPRO - Materials Management - Purchasing - Purchase Order - Confirmations - Define Internal Confirmation Categories.

      Here active Order Acknowledgment - Z1 - Acknowledge by Vendor.

      Then

      SPRO - Materials Management - Purchasing - Purchase Order - Confirmations - Set Up Confirmation Control.

      Create Tracking Import - 0004 and assign confirmation sequence.

      Acknowledge by Vendor

      Dispatched by Vendor

      Arrived at Port

      Clearance at Port

      Stocked at Port

      Dispatch. to Factory

      At last record Dispatch to Factory, Here click on three indicators as per below mention detail,

      Indicator for MRP - Relevant

      Indicator for GR - Relevant

      Indicator for GR - Assignment,

      Also assign Reference date.

      Then follow above mention process.

      Regards,
