    Hi Vishal,

    If you want to make the End Validity in Purchase Order to Unlimited, you can do it as shown below:

    But as i can understand, you want a Recurring Purchase Order and this Functionality is not in SAP BYD till yet.

    Symptom: You want to create a purchase order for a recurring expenses such as telephone bill. You can see a functionality to create a recurring invoice. There is no way or functionality to create a recurring purchase order that stays open from month to month.

    Reproducing the Issue:

    • Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
    • Go to the Recurring Invoices view.
    • You can see this functionality in Supplier Invoice.
    • Now go to the Purchase Requests and Order work center.
    • No options to create Recurring Purchase Order.


    Resolution: In the current release, the functionality is available with Recurring Invoices only and Recurring Purchase Orders is a new requirement. Hence the feature will be considered for a future release of SAP Business ByDesign.

    Better you create the Recurring Invoice for your Fixed Bill Per Month.

    Please find the Help Document in Help Center : Quick Guide for Recurring Invoices (in Supplier Invoicing).

    Hello Vishal´╝î

    Purchase order can only be automatically finished when all the purchased item quantity be delivered and totally invoiced. There is no particular

    en period for a PO. If it's not fully delivered it would never be automatically closed.

    As you mentioned you are getting a fixed bill per month, if the period is not fixed and the price is fixed, I would like to suggest you maintain a dummy quantity with a "huge" number and a fixed price for the PO item.

    For example, item 1, net price: 1 EUR per month, quantity: 100,000 month. When you want to terminate the quantity, you can directly update the PO quantity to the delivered quantity and the PO delivery status will changed to Finished.
