Down payment against a PO not to exceed the agreed %age of PO value


Dear friends,

Here's my problem:

Scenario 1.: While doing F-48 (downpayment to vendors), how can we ensure that the down payment made against a purchase order should not exceed the agreed percentage of total value? This means that advance should be made as per the payment terms given in the PO. PO field in F-48 has already been made mandatory.

For Example if 10% advance is agreed upon, then the system should not pay beyond 10%.

Scenario 2.: My client has payment terms with various vendors such that a part of PO value would be paid in advance. %age of advance may vary from vendor to vendor. Can this be done in SAP? Can we have such Payment terms in PO or vendor master with a provision by which either a Down Payment Request , for say 10%, is triggered as soon as a PO is generated or the system should not allow a manual downpayment (F-48) for more than the agreed %age?
