PO Waiting for Approval

Hello SRM Gurus,

I am working on a Standalone,

I have created a SC and a PO for the same using Sourcing.

Few Questions

1.Can i create a PO from SC without using the Sourcing Application?

I have Maintained the Vendor and Price in Product Master(commpr01)

Can this be done with the Vendor list.?

When i tried maintaing the Vendor list using "Process Vendor List"what is the entry "Release Authorized Purchasing Org"?

2.The above created PO is showing as awaiting approval ,even i have not activated any Approval process for PO.what can i check in OOCU for this and deactivate the PO approval process.

When i tried creating a POR for the PO it displays error message "the document is not in the sent state..."

How do i do this.

Full points promised..

    1. You have the option of auto PO after approval of SC provided

    SC is complete & you have deactivated sourcing.

    As per me you can not maintain price in vendor list.

    When you create external BP (vendor) in SRM, you maintain PORG in vendor tab.

    this is same as assigning vendor to PORG in ECC.

    Same you can input in vendor list.

    2. go to SWB_COND

    you can find the start conditions for approval WF there.

    Search for WF for BO BUS 2201 (PO)

    some approval WF would be activated. Switch off that

    and switch on auto approval WF

      1.You can dectaivate sourcing wrt prod cat at the follow IMG path

      SAP Implementation Guide>Supplier Relationship Management>SRM Server>Sourcing>Define Sourcing for Product Categories

      or if you have more specific criteris use the BADI for sourcing


      2. Yes.

      If you don't want to submit yr PO to any approval then activate this WF.

      enter simple start condn like

      creation date => today

      If will auto reflect in OOCU also.
