To prevent PO appearing in cockpit

Hi users, can you please advise. I am trying to find an alternative to goods movement 102 in ECC purely because it is being used incorrectly. What is happening is a goods receipt then a 102 to stop payment because the PO may say 4 but the invoice say 14 so its put into query.

Can you advise of instead of 102 movement or 122 what method would be best to suspend payment using a goods movement?

Thanks in advance

    I believe from previous you can lock the lines on the PO and then unlock to prevent a 2 way match. Can anyone confirm, I have checked SAP book and also research to avoid it.

    Are you certain about the chosen tags? I don't think any of the primary and secondary tags is right.I recommend that you Google your tags to know what they stand for. For me is a purchase order and a goods receipt still MM (Materials Management). And payment block for already entered invoices is a finance activity which would be the tag FIN (Finance) . Kindly retag.

    You can set a payment block in FB02. Cancelling the receipt without knowing if it is right or wrong yet is not a good practice.

      Hi Jurgen, forgive me, its my first time on here so best practise is still to come. It was a case of trial and error. But thank you for highlighting although at that moment least of my priorities.

      Thank you

    I doubt that blocking in the PO has any effect on the payment, as payment comes when the invoice is posted. with a block you stop follow on activities like goods receipt and invoice receipt, which are both done in reference to the PO. But payment is not linked to the PO,

      I have found my way I have generated a method to solving this. IT can be done by locking the PO which prevents it appearing in the cockpit to be paid.

      Thanks for your help with this!
