Issue with Purchase Requisition Release strategy


Hi Gurus,

We are using ECC 6.0.For the approvals of purchase requisitions, we are using standard SAP functionality of release procedure. There were some 52 release strategies configured for the PR .The release strategy was based on value of the following fields that is below were characteristics grouped together for class for PR:

1. Creation Indicator of PR-R (Configured only for manually created PRs)

2. Purchasing Group

3. Value of the PR

As a result of PM module implementation, there is requirement of additional 30 release strategies.

We configured them but one more field of doc type was added in the characteristics fields.

Now the release strategy was based upon following fields:

1. Creation Indicator of PR-R (Configured only for manually created PRs)

2. Purchasing Group-(Configured against new purchasing groups )

3. Value of the PR

4. Document type of purchase requisitions.

Classification data was accordingly maintained that is for older release strategies,

Old PR doc. Type: NB was maintained where as other values were same. For new release strategies, new PR document types:NB1-NB6 for Doc type have been maintained .

The above set up worked fine for some time. But suddenly, none of the PR release strategies are working. I checked all the related configuration settings and all look fine. I also checked my release strategies in tcode: OMGQCK. But no error was there.

Could any body help in finding the reason why PR release strategy stopped working all of a sudden? What could be the probable reasons? What should be the approach to resolve it?

We are in testing phase. Many of the test scripts failed due to this issue.

Quick response will be appreciated!!!

Thanks & Regards,
