External PO numbering using EXIT_SAPMM06E_001


We are using a third party drop ship order based on a customer PO and we would like the resulting vendor PO number to match the sales order number with a different prefix. The logic behind this is to sychronize the numbers to make the return ASN PO number match the PO numbers in the customer system and our system.

The obvious user exit to facilitate assigning the external PO number is EXIT_SAPMM06E_001, but getting the sales order number to that user exit has proved tricky. There are options of using a memory ID, table locking, etc., but they are all quite risky. The option of modifying SAP code has been discussed, but we would like to use that as a last resort.

We realize that external PO numbering has inherent risks, but it is a business process decision that is out of our hands.

Has anyone had any luck with a different user exit?

Best Regards,

    Hi John,

    If u hv not found the solution yet, may b I hv something for you, hope this helps.

    But first of all, I want to understand clearly and correct me if I am wrong.

    What I presume is, you want to have a different prefix for the PO numbers (for certain criteria based on vendor or any other criteria).

    If this is all you want I can help. Bcoz I have developed a similar exit before.

    Pls let me know if this is all or u r looking for another functionality. May b u can elaborate a bit more..
