    Hi,

    Order type FO (framework order)

    1. Validity period in header of purchase order (field selection)

    2. Item category B (limit)

    A.. Limit in the item

    B. No material number

    C. Account assignment category U (unknown) is allowed

    D. No goods receipt or service entry

    3. Accounting data for the item suggested in invoices

    4. Additional or multiple account assignment possible in invoice verification

    5. Check of validity period and limit in invoice verification

    To be able to work with validity periods and limits in a purchase order, you must

    use document type FO (framework order) and item category B (limit). In the

    standard system, document type FO enables you to specify the validity period at

    PO header data level and use the item category B for limit items. (Limit items are

    sometimes referred to as blanket items.)

    Because you can only use a blanket order to procure consumable materials or

    services, you must enter an account assignment for PO items with the item

    category B. However, you need not specify the precise account assignment at the

    time you create the blanket PO. Instead, you can use the account assignment

    category U (unknown).

    You cannot specify a material number in a PO item with item category B. You

    have to describe the materials or services that are to be procured (such as office

    materials) using a short text. You also have to specify a material/service group.

    Regards,

    Hi Prasad,

    A blanket purchase order enables you to procure different materials or services from a vendor up to a specified maximum value. The nature of the materials or services is such that the cost and administrative effort involved in processing individual purchase orders are too high in relation to their value. A blanket purchase order contains only a short text and a validity period. It does not contain specific materials or services. Blanket purchase orders have the item category B and document type FO.
