how to find PO from Material document in external subcontracting

Hi,

I create a subcontracting PO with main item line and components.

and sends the items to the external vendor by doing a transfer posting (mb1b) with movement type 541.

having that transfer posting document number only, is there a way to get back to the corresponding PO document?????

(keep in mind still i hvnt done the GR, the materials are with the vendor)

Cheers

    Hi

    If you know vendor number only then RUN ME2O by giving vendor number and it will display all PO nos for that vendor

    Hi,

    Previous answers were not correct - you cannot find the PO number in material document even if you execute the stock tranasfer to your subcontractor with reference to a PO in MB1B.

    E.g. if you delivered the compoenents already with reference to a PO you are able to use the same PO in MB1B to transfer the same components again (system suggests the.same components, same quantity).

    So, there's no such link between material movement and PO you are looking for.

    If you want to have reference you have to do it manually (e.g. as text remark) or go to development.

    Hi,

    While doing 541 you can use the text field as your PO reference so that u can track the PO through material document.
