Incorrect message type in IDOC for Purchase order change


Hi Gurus.

Please advise on below.

We have several purchase orders that are configured to trigger IDOC upon change. But accidentally, someone has deactiveted the automatic proposal of EDI message type for these Purchase orders which resulted to not transmitting purchase order change documents automatically.

As a workaround, we have proposed to create EDI message manually during Purchase order change. But upon checking in tcode WE09, message type is ORDERS which is PO create instead if ORDCHG for purchase order change.

Please kindly advice on why it is behaving like this for purchase orders with EDI message previously deactivated.

Thanks in advance.


To simulate.

Create PO. go to messages, select EDI message then deactivate permanently. Save PO. Release PO if needed. Change PO. go to messages, EDI is not automatically proposed. create EDI message mamanually. Save PO. Release PO id needed. check tcode WE09, for PO create, no IDOC since it was deactivated permanently. For PO change, IDOC was triggered but with incorrect message type ORDERS instead of ORDCHG.
