Purchase order number in sales order

Hi friend.

When we create sales order, evry time system ask for PO number, I know PO field is mandatory in customizing. My question is that every time what ever number even same number e.g. 1 we enter in PO field in sales order, system allow to save. I want po number should come automatically and if i have any po number, system should displau error message that this po number already exist. How this can be done.

Thanks

Dave

    In sales order document configuration ( transaction V0V8) set check purchase order number value to A, SAP defaults to blank

    hi

    PO number cannot come automatically

    as it is the customer's PO reference number

    if u want to give an warning message that already a PO nuber exists

    for this u have to check in VOV8 of sales doc customizing

    as right now i dont have access to SAP

    Hi Dave

    What is the business requirement to have such a setting. Also in case if you are having incoming PO's ( EDI Orders) from customers for which the orders are created, there would be issue in referencing such orders, since they would error out if duplicates.

    Hello Dave,

    When you want to check the PO number in the sales order to avoid repetition then this can be in configuration of SALES DOCUMENT TYPE.

    Regarding PO number being automatically generated in the system if present, i don't think it is possible in standard system. Kindly correct me if i am wrong on this.

    Regards,
