Release Strategy for Asset Purchase order

Hi,

I have the following client Requirement.

1. PO document type will be anything but Po created is for Asset

2. In such case, Release strategy should be approved only be certain groups only. Anyway the Account assignment category will be "A"

As we cannot control the PO Release by Account Assignment category, it has to be controlled via User Exit.

I.e., combination of Acc Assignment category and Purchasing Group should result in a particular strategy.

Can you suggest relevant user exit? This is importantly needed. Please help.

Thanks

    Hi,

    You Can Append the structure CEKKO i.e. Include CEKKOZZ. Create your own Z field for account assignment Category in the Include CEKKOZZ. Create Characteristic for acct. assgn. category and assign it your Class.

      Yes this can be done using the Field KNTTP as a characteristic. Ask your ABAPer to append the structure CEKKO and create new filelds.You will have to create new filed namely ZKNTTP and add it to the structure CEKKOZZ.Then while creating the characteristic assign the above structure and field you have created.

    This you can achieve either creating a separate Purchasing Organization or Purchase Group which further can be used as characteristics CEKKO_EKORG, CEKKO_EKGRP in release strategy.

    Hi,

    Please do the following changes,same is tested by me in Our dev server and works successfully in PO.

    Go to Se11 ,open structures -CEKKO (You will find KNTTP-account assignment field is missing)

    Click on append structures ,system will ask you object name ,give as anything,then put a description /

    Then system will ask you to add new field in CEKKO structures.

    Add field KNTTP and save ,system will generate request for the same.

    Now create a characteristic as CEKKO_KNTTP and save ,don't give table name here

    Once saved,re-open the CEKKO_KNTTP ,here you need to give table name as CEKKO and field name-KNTTP. Define values an save.

    then add the same in class ,and then select the required assignment in CL20N ,save.

    And check the PO effects,it will works.

    Regards,

    Sandesh Sawant

      Hi Sandesh,

      I am asking this out of ignorance. Is there any difference between

      1. Creating a Characterestic and immediately adding the table and Field names

      2. Creating the Characterestic, saving it and then reopening it and entering the Table and field values?

      I have created the Characterestic and immediately entered the Table and Field names and then saved it. I do not know if my system is not working because of it.

      Thanks.

    Hi,

    First Create characteristic ,then save

    after saving the same ,then provide table reference

    If char . is already create then delete the same and recreate,

    I have tested above scenario in our dev server by today only and its working fine ,there are no dumps / any errors appeared while doing this transactions.

      Hi Sandesh,

      I tried what you have said by deleting the Characterestic, creating a new one and saving it without entering Table and field names. Then after saving it, I reopened it and entered the table and field names, selected the Restriction as "032" Release strategy and also assigned the value. But still I do not get the Release Strategy in purchase Order for Asset.

      I do not know where I am going wrong.

      Thanks for your continued support.

      Thanks
