Zero value shopping cart

Hi Experts,

We are using srm 5.0 extended classic scenario.

For some vendors i need to create sc with out any approval process hence i maintained zero value for those materials.

If SC created with those material PO created but in held status.

Hence created a report to unchecked invoice expected indicator.

Also using crm_jest_update i have updated the status and transfered to back end.

I able to do GR but one thing is output is not triggered to vendor.

Please give me a solution how to trigger output to vendor. Or is another version creation is useful for my need.

How to create new version for PO?If i create new version how can i update status? or will status get updated automatically if new version created.

Please give your valuable input.

Thanks and Regards,

    Hello Shiva,

    PO is only automaticaly ordered if it is complete. Usually, SC is missing source of supply, and when you fill this information in PO it can be ordered.

    But as you say that you already have a vendor, that is not the case. Some other information is missing, you should CHECK the PO to know what is happening

    My suggestion:

    If you need to create shopping carts for specific vendors without approval process, you have to review the how you are maintaining your workflow conditions! Create a "Automatic Approval" workflow and maintain those vendors as conditions.

    This will keep the documents for those vendors going through approval fprocess, as you desire, and you won't have to create "zero value" shopping carts.

      Yes. It is possible. Take a look at the mechanism used by standard:


      Method: PROCESS_BBP_PO_MAI

      You would need to program something similar.

    You need to maintain output messages for PO output to Vendor, depends on via Email, Fax etc.

    Regarding the PO versions, activate the Version control for Purchasing documents in IMG. This will create new version of PO when it is changed.

      Hi Jagdish,

      We already activated version control for POs. But version not generated if we remove invoice expected indicator using report.

      Thanks and Regards,
