Difference in status for Shopping carts created internally and from po reqs

23 Views

Hi,

We implemented 2 standard workflows

1. Completion of shopping cart by purchasing manager

2. Approval of shopping cart by Approval manager

Shopping carts created in SRM

In the standard system, we go to create our shopping cart, the shopping cart goes to the purchasing manager for completion and then the workitem goes onto approval manager(depending on starting condition).

Shopping carts created from ECC6

However, when a shopping cart is created from an external system(a po requisition in ECC6 in the case), the shopping cart is created. The purchasing manager can then go and complete the shopping cart. After completing the shopping cart the workitem stays with the purchasing manager and does not go onto the approval manager.

The status will be set differently for shopping carts created internally and externally.

Status of Shopping carts created in SRM

HEADER I1015 Awaiting Approval

HEADER I1021 Created

HEADER I1038 Complete

HEADER I1106 Shopping cart ordered

After completion by the purchasing manager, these status remain the same. The shopping cart then goes onto Approval manager.

Status of Shopping carts created in ECC6

HEADER I1015 Awaiting Approval

HEADER I1021 Created

HEADER I1038 Complete

HEADER I1106 Shopping cart ordered

Here After completion by the purchasing manager, these status is changed to

HEADER I1015 Awaiting Approval X

HEADER I1021 Created

HEADER I1038 Complete

HEADER I1106 Shopping cart ordered

HEADER I1129 Approved

I debugged this and notices that the code in include LBBP_PDF3L

To Determine action for call of workflow function module

(FORM get_wfl_action_sc ) will set the cv_wfl_action depending on the statusu2019s.

Why is the approved status(HEADER I1129 Approved) set for external requisitions completion by manager? This set the ( HEADER I1015 Awaiting Approval inact-X).

Also I get a message when I try to display approver to say 'External Requisitions do not require approval Process'.

We implemented the changes outlines in the document

'Enable SRM Workflow for External Purchase Requisitions'

Any help appreciated.
