For a specific PO type, trigger the workflow

Hi Gurus,

I have a requirement, for a specific PO type WF should be triggered.

In my case, I am using BUS2012 for PO type.

In basic data->start evenets, I add BOR Object as BUS2012 and even as CREATED.

Now, when I click on conditions, I do not see BSART/PO type as one of the attributes of the std business object.

In this case, what additional needs to be done or is there any other way to do this?

    If you cannot find a suitable attribute in your business object (in this case BSART), the normal way to do this is to add this new field to the business object in SWO1. Since you cannot modify SAP standard object, you can create a Z-version (BUS2012) of it. This must be a subtype of the standard object and you must do a so called delegation between the standard and custom object. Delegation means that your system starts to use the Z-version instead of the standard one, and thus you can use all methods/attributes that you create in your Z-object. In any case, this is absolutely basic stuff for any WF developer and you should find lots of instructions how to do this by searching.

    Once you have the Z-version done & delegated, just add the new attribute BSART to it, and you are free to use it in your conditions.
