Unable to restrict the vendor during creating a PO on the max. value limit

Hello,

We want to restrict the vendor during creating a PO on the maximum value limit (say 10000 EUR).

We created maintain customizing for PO based load building - we maintain restriction on the value basis, restriction category as maximum and maintain restriction profile with this restriction and restriction category (with currency EUR) for value 2000.

We maintain "Order optim. rest." field in "Vendor Master: Purchasing data" for the required vendor.

We created manual PO with this vendor and entered the value beyond the maximum allowed in customizing. System didn't stopped us in saving the PO.

Please suggest where is the shortcoming in this scenario or how else we can restrict vendor for some maximum allowed value limit.

Regards,

Puneet

    Hi,

    Please check wheather your requirement fulfills by creating a value contract with the vendor or with a blanket PO.

    This limit is used in transciton WLB13, when you collet your reqs for the PO load building

    this will not restrict in ME21n.

    to do that you have to add the release procedure to block the POs over certial amount limit.

    Please see the help of field LFM1-BOPNR

    Restriction Profile for PO-Based Load Building

    Key used to assign a quantity of restrictions for load building to a

    vendor.

    In the restriction profile, you determine:

    o if a vendor is included in optimized load building

    o the target values to be taken into account in optimized load building

    Use

    o In automatic optimized PO-based load building

    o In manual optimized PO-based load building

    o Additional materials planning

    • Charlie wrote that the limit you set is only considered in WLB13 transaction, but not in the PO creation.

      If you would like to limit the PO, then you have to setup release strategy, so an approver can either approve the PO or refuse it.

      Or you develope a userexit, that looks into the table where you entered the limit, and issues then an error message if the value is exceeded.
