    Hi Raja,

    Using the field VBKD-BSTKD, as its length is 35, where as the field VBAK-BSTNK is only 20 and the value of PO might get truncated.

    Best Regards,

    Pradeep.

    EKKO-ebeln is the PO number refering the purchase of raw material, etc for production from the vendor and then the same is selled to customers.

    In sales order PO no is the PO no of the customer, against which we are selling the manufactured goods.

    Pradeep Chintala is right!

    vbak-bstnk is not long enough!

    if you va01 create a SO with customer po num's length exceeding 20, you'll find the vbak-bstnk is incomplete.

    and you would never find the vbak-bstnk in screens of va01, va02, va03

    but you can find vbkd-bstkd.
