No display/ change functionality in ME53N when opening requistion via IW33 transaction

Dear All,

I have a requirement that while opening an order(work orders) through IW33 and navigating to the transaction ME53N (Purchase requisition ) (on double clicking purchase requisition number : ME53N is displayed ).But I am not able to see ME53N display/change button while opening ME53N via IW33 transaction .

If I open this a fresh tcode ME53N and entering the purchase requisition number there then I am getting that display/change functionality in the application toolbar of the ME53N screen .

So why this display/change functionality not available through IW33 ---> ME53N .Please guide how I can achieve this functionality opening ME53N via IW33 .Please guide is there any note that needs to be implemented or it is a standard feature .

  • Deep as first step look when you move from IW33 to ME53N switch on the debugger. In the PBO of ME53n you will see different modules being called along with status. You can debug and find for yourself.

    Hello Deep,

    Previously the IW32 transaction can open ME53N and show the display/change icon. That was considered to be a bug and corrected with note 2402050. The new logic is also explained in KBA 2561562.

    In function module MASTER_DATA, 'ME_DISPLAY_PURCHASE_DOCUMENT' is called with parameter

    I_DISPLAY_ONLY = 'X', so the change icon is hidden. If you would like to show the change icon, you can set

    I_DISPLAY_ONLY to blank in function module MASTER_DATA before calling 'ME_DISPLAY_PURCHASE_DOCUMENT', but please note that that change is modification.

    Best regards,
