Services tab in Service Purchase Order for Limit SC is not filled in

Hello All

As per the standard behaviour if a Free text SC is created for Services , the PO is created with one line item having description as " service item " and under the Services tab we can see the line items.

But when we create a SC from Limit for Services ( if we select Confirmation and Invoice ), The PO is created just like normal PO with item category as "D" and we do not see any line item in the Services tab in the PO.

Could you please let us know why this difference between Free text SC and for Limit SC.

Thanks in Advance.

Regards

    Hello Bharath,

    What you describe is standard.

    1- Limit SC

    A limit item in SRM can give two kinds of R/3 PO items:

    b- If you set "Invoice and confirmation" during Limit SC item creation, this means you will confirm your item, so R/3 PO item for service can only be created as category item "D",

    Nevertheless, for your R3 PO item, you have populated an expected value (and you can fill in also an overall limit if check box "Unlimited" was not set at SC item creation).

    That's why "Service" tab is empty. The "Limit" tab is populated in this case: confirmation will be done according to PO item expected value and not according to PO item quantity

    a- If you set "Invoice only"during Limit SC item creation, this means confirmation is not allowed for you item, so R/3 PO item can only be created as item "B" (blanket). Blanket PO cannot be confirmed.

    2- Free text SC

    For a free text SC item with product type "Service", R/3 PO item will be a "D" category item.

    "Service" tab is filled in with quantity and net price: confirmation will be done according PO item quantity.

    So, main difference between Free text SC and Limit SC is quantity or expected value based confirmation.

    Regards.
