In VA01, how to automatically create a PO from a Sales Order

In VA01, I create a sales order using item.cat. TAS; then, system generates a PR for the sales order.

Is it possible to make the system create PO instead of PR?

In item.cat. configuration, I tried to check the check box "Create PO Automatic."; however, the system still geerates a PR for me w/o generating any PO.

Any idea would be appreciated.

    Hi Vitthavat

    In VOV6 for schedule line category CS check wheather the following data has been maintained or not

    Order Type: NB

    Item Category: X

    Account assignment cat: 1

    In VOV7 , for item category TAS

    Check the box - Automatic PO generation

    Billing Relevance - F

    In MM02 , in Purchasing tab , check the automatic purchasing tab

    Use ME59N for Automatic PO creation

    Regards

    • Hi Vittavat

      Generally we cannot create PO directly from SO in standard. The configuration what has been given in the previous threads by all will help you to create PO directly in the sales order

    Hi

    There is no possibility of creating PO directly from Sales Order, but PR can be possible. Using this PR, we can create Automatic PO from Transcation Code - "ME59N". It is simple that you have to enter the PR number only for PO creation.

    But, the Pre-requisites are:

    - Set "automatic PO" indicator checkbox Material Master - Purchasing View.

    - Automatic PO indicator checkbox must be enabled in the Vendor master - Purchasing View.

    - That particular vendor must be assigned to the "Fixed Vendor" field of the PR item.

    Let me know, if it works.

    Rgds,
