report - who is the current approver for purchase requisition

Hi Experts

Is there a report that can give information the status / who is the current approver for purchase requisition?

currently if we open the PR directly, we can only know the release strategy, release code, status of approver, but we cannot have the information who is the person that should approve this PR.

Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    Use table CDHDR in t.code:SE16 & enter transaction code as ME54N or ME54 or ME55, enter the range date if required, enter the object value as PR number, EXECUTE, then you can find the releaser with release date of PR.

    • you have to write a Z-program, where the user enters the PR number and get as answer the possible approvers.

      In this Z-program you have to search for a role that has the authorization to release a certain comibnation of release group and release code and plant and then you have to find the users to which this role is assigned

    Hi,

    As i understood from your requirement as there is no information based on release code who is going to approve this PR at this level

    If it is correct then you can define the workflow for that release code and assign the particular sap id to it in configuration of PR release strategy so message will be pass to that user in his/her sap inbox.

    Hope it will help you..

    the link to a person is only available if you use a workflow.

    the approvers have a role which allows to release a PR with a certain strategy group and code.

    there might be 2 or more users having this role assigned.

    it is not possible to explode the roles in a purchase requisition to finally see all possible approvers.

    you may have a matrix for that in Excel and can distribute it as info to your requisitioners.

    of course it is possible to find such people in SUIM, which is certainly too complex for endusers, and usually not authorized to be used for endusers.

    Hi,

    There is no standard report for your requirement.

    You will need to create you own report which reads the change history

    (CDHDR and CDPOS).Here you can see the release dates and the users that approved the requistion.

    Kind regards,

    Lorraine
