PR to PO with deletion indicator problem


I need to one e.g. in conversion process. I have 3 line items and created PR with that.

Now after creation of PR marked deletion indicator on second line item and save the PR. Now after release when i convert

this from PR to PO i am not getting proper results. I want to know whether system will be able to create PO for line item 1 and line item 3 and ignore line item 2? . Also i want that both 1 and 3 line items should be one PO, no searate PO should be issued.

How can we achieve this.

    Hi Himanshu ,

    By adopting the PR to the PO via the shopping cart button all marked documets of the overview are copied onto the overview.

    As a workaround you could control the selection of PR, you could select the 'open only' checkbox in the selection screen in

    the overview. Then the deleted items should not appear on the overview and therefore will not be adopted to the purchase order. Another option is to use the 'deletion indicator' in the variant for purchase requistion therfore excluding the

    deleted items in your selection.

    Kind regards,

    When you set deletion indicator in line item 2 in PR, you mean you don't require line item 2.

    When you adopt this PR for making a PO, your line item 2 will be ignored and your PO for 2 line items (1st and 3rd ) will be same.
