GR based IV is disabled but it got changed

HI gurus ,

We are using SRM 5.0 Extended classic scenario, ECC 6.0

In the Purchase Order ,item data-> Follow-on documents -> Confirmation-Related Invoice Verification is disabled.

But somehow the GRIV indicator got changed , I can see the change log for the same.

User just changed the Requester and Goods recepient , but the change log shows he changed the GRIV indicator too.There have been no changes on the GRIV field in the vendor master.Also when the changes were done, there were already some partial GR and invoices posted for the PO.

Because of this , the PO fell into 'error in process' from 'ordered' status. Although I have removed the GRIV indicator at the table level and pushed the PO again into ECC which has changed the status of the PO to 'ordered' again, I want to know how the GRIV indicator got changed automatically ?

Is there any OSS note for this ??

    Hi! I think that my answer can help you a little bit.

    There are some OSS notes, you can verify if any of them is avaiable to your system version:




    1536971: Is a FAQ note, which can help you with some doubts. The BADI's BBP_ECS_PO_OUT_BADI, BBP_PO_INBOUND_BADI and BBP_DOC_CHANGE_BADI can be causing the issue.

    Good luck!

      Hi experts,

      We are on SRM 7.0 ECS , support pack SAPKIBKV08.

      Our vendor master in SRM has following flags set:

      GR= set

      IR = set

      GR based IV=set

      Now in an SRM PO , buyer wants to set the following flag:

      GR = buyer wants to set

      IR =buyer wants to set

      GR based IV= buyer wants to reset GR based IF flag , since the invoice comes before the GR and has to be paid

      But in the SRM system , if GR flag is set , and IR flag is set , then GR based IV flag gets set automatically. Buyer is unable to uncheck it. This is a bug in the system , how to resolve this. the above mentioned notes, 1010791, 1445234,1114343 are not applicable to the system .

      (If a PO was directly created in ECC system , and GR falg and IR flag is set , then buyer can manually uncheck the flag)
