Version management of purchase orders, triggers on almost every change.

I have customized version management for purchase orders. I want to have it specific for one field only, in this case the delivery date (EKET-EEIND).

Customizing settings:

  1. Setup version mngt for purchase orders. Doc Cat F; Order Typ NB Purch. Org XXX; Activate = X.
  2. Define a reason for change: 01 and 02 Created.
  3. Setup change display (1 field): Doc Typ NB; Table EKET; Field name EEIND; Category A; Fields "No out" and Version are not marked.

So if I understand the document Version Management - Purchasing (MM-PUR) - SAP Library well then now a new version will be created only when the delivery date is changed. However, if I change other fields like "Inv. Receipt" or entering a Tax code, then version management is triggered as well. It looks like every change will trigger version management although I have only marked the field EEIND.

Even worse, or the same, if I remove that field from the customizing, so no field is marked at step ad. 3 then change management will happen also on every field.

The SAP text explaining that you define which changes are version relevant.

All version-relevant changes

You define which changes are version-relevant in Customizing for Purchasing under Start of the navigation path Version Management Next navigation step Version-Relevant Fields of Purchase Requisitions End of the navigation path .

Any ideas?
