    The main PO is SRM PO and copy PO is ERP PO in Extended Classic scenario.

    I think there is no business usage for attachment in Copy ERP PO.

    How user is going to handle the attachment in Copy ERP PO?

    We have the same requirement.

    Extended Classic Scenario - store the physical document in the backend with link to the copy PO.

    Does anyone have a solution for this?

    Kind regards,

    • HI Alexander,

      The purchase order in the Extended Classic Scenario is transferred to the backend system with different Function Modules. The

      attachment transfer logic was only implemented in the Classic Scenario.

      One reason for this decision was, that the leading Purchase Order in the extended classic scenario is the local one, and in the local purchase order the attachments are available.

      At the moment it is not planned to support the attachment transfer in the Extended Classic Scenario. The transfer of attachments to backend PO is developed only for Classic Scenario.

      I am sorry that this is not the result that you wanted. This also explains why in the ECS PO transfer BADI BBP_ECS_PO_OUT_BADI does not have the parameters for attachments where as the Classic PO transfer


      We have some notes related to SC and POR reporting issues when transferring attachments to ECC side, but ther are related to Classic scenario:

      1400088: SC attachments transferred to ECC PR are lost on EHP upgrade

      1413792 Attachment deleted after changing purchase order

      I hope this information help you to understand this issue,

      Kind Regards,
