Check open quantity PO orders

Hello,

When we create an purchase order for a certain material and vendor, we want the system to check if there exist an open purchase order for the same material and vendor and in that case give warning.

What is the best way to do this?

thanks in advance

Regards,

Rachid

    Hi,

    The direct answer to your question is that you would have to create a PO exit to do the necessary checks.

    Are you using MRP? If you are, then I'm sure the PO material is created with reference to PR for a valid reason (dependent requirement, or fell below Reorder Point value). If this is the case, i don't think you need this checking function.

    Hi Rachid

    There is no config for that. You have to use an user exit (ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST) or a badi (ME_PURCHDOC_POSTED).
