Workflow not triggered when i have changed the PO

Hi,

We have custom fields (Price) in PO Header as well as in item. when we update in header the price should get distributed to items.

we have custom workflow evernt (changed) to update the items if user change in header. But the issue is if user changes the items and save the po, it is not updating immediatly. after we come back to Purcahse Order and save the purcahse order again then it updates the table.

Is there any reason why the event is not triggered when the PO was changed initially.

    Hi Siva,

    Please make a change to the PO item details and then Save the details then go the transaction SWEL to check whether you have an entry with Business Object BUS2012 and event CHANGED. If you have an entry with your workflow name (WS*****) under Receiver Type coloum then double click that entry then beside the object key field you will have your PO number then that means that your WF is triggered.

    FYI...

    1. Make sure that entry should a Green Signal under Info coloum.

    2. Make sure that you have the "Event trace Switched on" checked in SWELS transaction.

    Please verify this details and let me know for any help on this.

    Regards,

    Srinivas

    Please check whether you have implemented the check fucntion module to trigger the custom event. For PO change you can check the event trace SWEL as mentioned above.

    Hello,

    "We have custom fields (Price) in PO Header as well as in item. when we update in header the price should get distributed to items. "

    If you update a price in the header, how/why would that be distributed to the items? Is this a total price of the whole PO? Why not just have it in the header?

    "we have custom workflow evernt (changed) to update the items if user change in header."

    OK. Strange, but OK.

    "But the issue is if user changes the items and save the po, it is not updating immediatly"

    I thought it was supposed to happen when the users changed the header, not the items.

    If you really have a workflow to update the items when the header is changed, then maybe it's not succeeding if the PO items are locked, eg by having them on your screen. Did the worklow actually start? Any error messages?
