Issue with PO Release strategy

Hi experts,

I have problem with Po release strategy in 5 to 10 purchase orders, i have created few purchase orders(2000 Po's) with same document type and company code ..etc and saved, then release strategy has been triggered.

For few purhcase orders release strategy has not been triggered.

If i take 1 po from that few purchase orders(Release strategy has not triggered) as reference and again if i create PO,new purchase order have getting created with release strategy.

Can some body tel how this ican be possible, hope this might be standard syatem behaviour.

Hope i should delete thos e purchase orders and i should create new PO's instead of of old PO's (Without release strategy).

Some experts can share their experiance in this regard.

And how i should proceed further with this issue.??

Thanks

    Hi,

    You issue in your system has 2000Nou2019s purchase orders with release strategy has been triggered but 5 to 10 purchase orders do have release strategy.

    & when you are creating a new PO with reference to old purchase orders (which release strategy has not triggered) and on saving NEW PO created with triggering release strategy.

    Cause for above:

    PO which release strategy does not trigger because the purchase orders are created before setting release strategy for PO. Those PO triggered release strategy and all are created after setting release strategy for PO.

    Action:

    Its completely business call for business users to go for options:

    Option-- >1# You can use same old PO which release strategy does not triggered, do GR and all other process

    Option-- >2# You can create new PO with reference old PO which release strategy does not triggered and upon saving you will have new PO number with release strategy triggered, then release PO & do GR and other related process.

    Hi,

    One of the possible reasons could be there was no valid characteristic assignment for the release strategy on the date on which the above set of Purchase orders were created.

    But now since there is a valid Release characteristic assignment in CL24N release is getting triggered when you create a Purchase Order.

    Hope it is clear.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi,

    It is possible that this has happened when somebody was doing changes in the classification data of this release strategy.

    OR...for some time someone has changed the classification data.

    Howerver it is not possible to track these changes.

    To correct these POs...you can make some changes in the POs and press check button.If all the charectristics value are matching..then a release staretegy will be triggered in the existing POs.

    Regards,

    Rajesh

    Hello Friend,

    Can you please check if the release strategies was locked for some brief period of time due to which the PO's Getting generated in thet period of time does not have any Release startegy triggered.

    it is possible that the Release STrategies were locked for some short duration, but again unlocked, which resulted in again triggereing of the release strategy.

    for the PO's for which you dont have any release Startegy please try to make some small changes which forces your PO to again trigger the release startegy.

    Hope it helps You

    regards,

    Yawar Khan

    Hi,

    Please cross check the critera used in those POs where release is not triggered.

    For example, you might have used purchasing group in release strategy where as this particular purchasing group might be missed when designing the release strategy.
