Purchasing reference document

Hello All,

I am creating a PO referring to the Purchasing Document Number (Field Name = REFBS). when I press enter after placing ref PO all the details will appear pertaining to the Previous PO but PO number will disappear. I wanted the PO # to be retained in place.

Please advice me how to make this to be retained in PO Ref place (REFBS).

Regards,

Veeresh

    Hi,

    I don't think it is possible to retain the reference PO field.

    Veer,

    The process you are telling is a copying functinality to create a PO, while copying the similar PO in recent past, As syestem just copy the all content of tht PO you can not have tht PO number,

    As SAP in PO refer Referencing document as Contraqct, PR, and Info record,

    Hope your queries will resolved

    Hi,

    When you create a PO from an existing Purchasing document, only the contents get copied. We cannot see the template Purchasing document number from which the current PO is created.

    Hi

    You are referring a document for your new document so the details only will copy the document number wont copy.because when you saving the p.o a new document number will be generated ,so the feild will be the new document number.

    In std sap it is not possible to copy the old document nuber in the feild.

    Thanks
