Output type not defaulting on PO?

Hi,

I am trying to get the NEU Output type (we use this output type used to send the PO to the vendor through email) to default onto the PO.

I have maintained all relevent customization, and master data:

1. Output Type NEU defined with external send medium (5)

2. Communication strategy CS01 defined

3. Communication strategy assigned to output type NEU

4. Condition record maintained in MN04 for order type / porg / pgroup using medium 5 (external send)

5. E-mail address maintained in vendor master record

6. E-mail address maintained in my user master record

When I create a PO, no output is automatically created. If you check the output determination analysis, it actually finds the condition record, but does not generate the output for some reason.

Diagnosis

A valid output condition has been found for the application object.

System response

An output proposal is created.

Procedure

Execute function

Any thoughts on why?

Cheers,

    Did you assign Communication Strategy and Printer in the output condition record?

    • Hi,

      Thanks for the quick replies.

      I actually do have the comm strategy and printer populated in the condition record;

      I am also using dispatch time = 4 (send immediately);

      The reason why it was not defaulting was because the fine tuned control was not maintained as pointed out by Dheeraj.

      Cheers,

    Hi,

    In the condition record (MN04) you have maintained the output medium 5, did you also maintain the date/time setting?

    This must be 4 if you want the output to be generated at the moment you save the PO. if this setting is set to 3 then the messages are collected and you have to execute ME9F to actually release the messages.

    Regards,

    Hi ,

    Did you maintain Operation 1 (New) for condition type NEU in

    Purchasing-Messages-Output Control-Message Types-Define Message Types for Purchase Order-Fine-Tuned Control: Purchase Order?

    Also check "Processing routines are given" and "Access to conditions is checked" for condition type NEU in Maintain Message Types for (NACE)

    Regards

    Hi,

    I have a similar issue with a new output I defined for the Simple Mail Medium (medium 7).

    - I created new output type (ZEMA);

    - I assigned communication strategy to the output type;

    - I assigned medium 7 (simple mail) with program RSNASTSO and form routine SAPOFFICE_AUFRUF to the output type;

    - I maintained fine-tune control in configuration for this output;

    - I added the output type to the message determination schema;

    - I am using partner role 'MP' (mail partner)

    - I created condition record for this output type for medium 7, dispatch time 4.

    When I create PO, it finds the condition record (if I check determination analysis), but no output is defaulted in the messages screen.

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers,

    Make sure you have assigned form or smartform to the output type.
