    As you know Limit POs are for purchasing items or services which are unknown at the time of placing the orders and thats the reason we put a limit to that purchase via Limit POs....

    Now, in most of the cases customers get into an agreement with Vendor on negotiated rates or discounts based on procuremnet value say for the whole year. This contract tab is to provide that information so that procurement can happen against the negotiated contract.This also servers as a Source of Supply to the PO

    • custom work may required to display the local contract in ECC system

      for example in classic scenario

      Sc number will not there in the standard PO - we need enhancement to populate the shopping cart number in the PO data (me23n - under tracking field)

      since local contract may not understand your ecc system

      BBP_PDIGP table CTR_HDR_NUMBER you can link with SC, PO and contract data.

      or using FM bbppdscdteail or BBPPDPOget*detail

      there is one output says it created by contract.
