Change SC after PO Created in ECC

Hi All,

We have a requirement to change a SC after it has been approved and created PO in ECC.

We are on SRM 7.0 and ECC 6.0 on Classic Scenario.

I would like to know how can we configure the system that when:

1. employee X created a SC;

2. SC has been approved;

2. PO was created in ECC; and

3. employee X has a requirement to change his/her SC. We would like employee X to highlight the SC and use the EDIT button to amend the SC.

Currently the only time we can edit the SC is when the SC is Awaiting for an Approval. We will also build a logic in BRF Workflow that when the SC Total Value was changed we will reissue the workflow.

Thank you very much in advance,

Mike

    Hi Mike,

    A SC cannot be changed if any follow-on documents exist (PO, GR or IR). This is standard SRM functionality, and does make logical business sense - the documents will be out of synch?

    Hope this helps!

    • Hi, I think this can be done, but not sure ...you will have to do a bit of customization.

      You will have to make changes to the HTML template so that when you action any such Scart it should create a link between the original shopping cart and the extension (new shopping cart). This must be performed via entry of parent and child GUID into a customised table. This will also has the reference to the purchase requisition and PO number where applicable.

      I guess once the linkage has occurred a secondary screen should appear giving detailed instructions/information to the USER about extended shopping carts. This will not be an SAP standard screen so it will need to be added and published within the Internet Service.

      You can also have a workflow triggered when such Scart are extended.

      I hope this helps.

      Let us know if you need any further information on this.

    Hi,

    As said by others, it may be a difficult if not impossible proposition to change an Approved cart, that is lying as a PO.

    If your need is to add additional line items to the cart, then i have seen business cases where this is done ass a new cart with a custom field where you could enter the existing PO of the original cart. This new cart after approval, gets updated to the original PO.

    Cheers,
