Auto generate PO from SO ( 1 SO to many PO)

Dear all experts,

I have one question that one SO can only trigger once u2018Auto generate POu2019 event by ticking the checkbox u2018Purchase Ordersu2019 in the Logistic tab in the SO, therefore only one SO number is recorded in por1.baseref. Let me explain it in more details:

For example in SO number S001, there is Qty 10, then i have ticked the checkbox 'Purchase Orders' in the SO logistic tab, then corresponding PO document is auto generated, i have updated the Qty in the PO from Qty 10 to Qty 7, then added the PO, hence Qty 3 remains. I search for SO S001 again, tried untick and tick again the checkbox 'Purchase Orders' and want to trigger the 'Auto generate PO' event again, but nothing happen.

Would like to know if there is any other method to deal with one SO to many PO case? (except creating UDF)

Please kindly help on this.

Thanks a lot!

    Hi Tac.......

    This is not possible to create No. of POs against one SO simply by Ticking Purchase Order in Sales Order.

    But there can be a work around. You can set the Preferred vendors from whom you prefer to purchase and can run MRP based on Sales order you raised and gets Purchase Order Recommendations.....

    Dear Tac wrong ,

    Please follow following method.

    in Sales order logistic Tab when you select purchase order than purchase order window is coming at that time you change Quantity as per your example like 7 qty and the tick on Create draft document.

    same procedure do for 3 qty.

    and then from draft add this two document.

    Second 3 qty PO you can directly add if you don't want to go in draft.

    May if help you.

      Dear Tac,

      If user don't know one so is equal to how many Po its perfect.

      Map a process like every time user save PO in Draft, and than open from draft report and make changes as per required and than and this PO.

      See try to use system functionality its help you for better reporting.

      Mapping system through UDF is not recommend way, always keep it as optional.
