    block is a short term solution to prevent any follow-on function like goods receipt and invoice receipt until the block is released.

    the block may be set if the price is not yet finally negotiated, but order had to be placed.

    a block will prevent the document from beeing closed. you will never be able to archive a document that has a block, as SAP allows only to archive closed business cases.

    Deletion indicator is to tell the vendor that you do not want this item anymore (if you had already send the order) and as well to mark the item for a future archiving (e.g. to logically close the business case for this item).

    • the block indicator in a contract prevents you from refrencing this contract item in a PO.

      technically contracts and POs are stored in the very same tables EKKO and EKPO etc.

      And the field does not have a different content for contracts than it has for POs.

    Hi,

    The difference may be the blocking a line item in a PO or PR will not inflence the Function Module.
