SPL Blocks in ECC - Warning or Error?

Hi Guys

As you are aware that the current GTS functionality dictates that whenever a Purcahse Order/ Sales Order is blocked by SPL, the System issues a Pop up stating the Block and saves the PO, but you cannot proceed or do anything with it as we will be getting a message of "PO is Locked".

My question is that is it possible to NOT SAVE the PO whenever the system issues a SPL block, basically the process here is that the PR is converted to PO via batch jobs in huge quantities, and the user will not be able to recognize the error unless he goes in the edit mode of PO.

Hence can we make a setting where whenever the SPL block popup appears the system should not save the PO?

Regards

Carl

    Hello Carl,

    we have implemented similar function at customer but it is not a standard function. You would have to develop small enhancement before saving of document.

    Cheers,

    Gabriel.

    Hi Carl,

    Just a thought, but...

    Rather than view GTS as a source of error messages, the idea is to employ one or more Compliance Managers to maintain the system and actively monitor compliance failures via the "Blocked Documents" work-list. It should not be necessary to recognise the blocks in the ERP feeder system; instead the Procurement Manager should get a call from the Compliance Manager.

    If you think in that way, could you find a way to overcome the problem without changing the functionality?

    Best regards,

    Dave

      Hi Guys

      As i know now, and i have confirmed the same from SAP, that the only way to put it as an error is via an enhancement, That is fine.

      Dave, you are absolutely right the process you specified is currently followed, the problem comes is that we have a custom process where auto generation of Sales/Purchasing documents are done from a Custom transaction via a background batch job, The person creating the document in the custom transaction will not have any knowledge of the block and will proceed with his work, by the time he finds out it will be too late.

      But anyway thanks guys we will be using the enhancement now.

      Cheers
