TECO deletes open PR without warning message

Hi PM experts,

When you perform technical completion for a PM order, the outstanding purchase requisition will be deleted without any warning message. Is there a SAP standard message that I can activate to prompt there is still open PR for that order?

Thanks,

    Hi,

    There is no standard message that can be activated when PR is flagged for deletion at technical completion time.

    Exit IWO10004 is called at completion but does not contain any requisition data as standard.

    • You will need to implement the message and associated logic yourself in the user exit that Paul mentioned much earlier in the post - after you have determined whether there are still open purchase requisitions.

      Perhaps you should also consider any records in CATS for the order operations that have not yet been transferred. You can check this with the FM CATS_NETWORK_ACTIVITY_EXISTS.

      Hi Prem,

      Thanks! I know SAP has many standard messages for PM, but this one is not there.

    hi,

    Other than what you specified ,you can create an user status which prohibits TECO of order as PO not converted ,and PO converted which allows TECO of the order.

    thanks

      Hi,

      This is a common problem that I have found at several clients and there is not an easy way to combat it in standard SAP without some form of enhancement. One tip I would recommend however is to include in your user training a recommendation that the user clicks on the 'Document flow' button on the PM order header before clicking on TECO. This function enables the user to easily see if each purchase requisition has been converted to a PO and goods/service receipted.
