Automatic PO generation in VI01

Hi Experts,

I am having running scenario of Shiping Cost Transfer (VI01).

Here I am having settings in T_56 (Item Category) as below..

Generate PO - "A" Generate purchase order for validity period of 1 day

And it is running fine.

Now my client requirement is like.. They want system to create new PO on daily basis.. but if the Service Entry Sheet against one PO goes beyond 200 entries the system should generate new PO.

With the help of Item Category Settings its possible to make the validity of PO on the basis of Day, Week or Month.. But we need it on the basis of Number of Service Entry Sheet..

Any solution???

Thanks in advance..

    In standard it is not possible. There are several exits for shipment costing:

    V54B0001 Shipment costing: Configure pricing

    V54B0003 Shipment Costs Calculation: Determine Rate Type and Cur

    V54B0004 Shipment Cost Calculation: Determine Status

    V54C0001 Shipment costing: Description(s) shipement cost item(s)

    V54C0002 Shipment costing: Create shipment cost sub-items

    V54C0003 Shipment Costs Processing: Determine Invoicing Party

    V54C0004 Shipment Costs Processing: Determine Loc. for Tax Invoi

    V54D0001 Shipment Costing: Determining the Tax Countries

    V54KSFRC Determining the factors for apportionment of shipment c

    V54P0001 Extended Function Codes for Shipment Cost Information

    V54U0001 Shipment cost processing: Check whether changes made

    V54U0002 Check shipment costs for completion

    V54U0003 Specification of shipment cost number

    V54U0004 Formatting for update of new objects (shipment costs)

    V54U0005 Updating new objects in shipment cost processing

    V54U0006 Shipment Purchase Order - Header Data Supply

    V54U0007 Shipment Purchase Order - Item Data Supply

    But you could also try a BADI or exit from the standard MM purchasing and have it checked on the creation indicator, i.e. shipment costing.

    Hi Hardik,

    Do you mean that you will have more than 200 Service entry Sheet / vendor / DAY*?

    I can't think of any business scenario where that would make sense.

    In my opinion you should check with your key-users, because something is inadequate in the Business Process Design. I am quite sure you can find a solution in the system without development.
