Is it possible apply new shopping carts to existing POs


We have a requirement for our client where we foresee the need to apply a new shopping cart to an existing PO (a PO that got created from an earlier different shopping cart)

Does any one know any way to achieve this (through standard BAdI or otherwise)?

This requirement is tied with with the need to validate the intent of the buyers when they push the Action Complete button in the SRM Sourcing Cockpit, and potentially to drive them to alternate options. One possible situation is where the shopping cart might need to get applied to an existing PO instead of getting action-completed.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Hi Som,

    Pl. mention which scenario are you using. Are you using extended classic. From your post what I could understand is that you want an alternate way to close your shopping cart by linking it to some PO instead of using button Action complete. I can suggest an option which you may try. You can go txn-process purchase orders, open the PO in change mode to which you want to link your shopping cart. In item tab, you have an option to 'Add shopping cart'. Go and add your shopping cart using this option. After adding the item, go into item basic data details and click on check box of 'complete requirement item after saving'. Finally you can delete this item from PO and order your PO again. Since you may not like to send this PO to vendor, you should go to output tab and select the check box for print or any thing which should not send the PO to vendor.

      Hi Sanjeev

      Thank you very much for your reply and I apologize for the delayed response: I was unable to log in and focus the past few days, due to health reasons.

      We are using classic scenario, so I'm not sure if we can adopt the approach you suggest (I believe it requires extended classic?).

      Again, thank you for triggering thoughts, will keep looking, and any other ideas will be much appreciated
