    Hi Neha,

    A reset of the release strategy only takes place if

    - the changeability of the release indicator is set to '4' in

    case of a purchase requisition and '4' or '6' in case of

    another purchasing document (purchase order, request for

    quotation, contract, scheduling agreement),

    - the document is still subject to the previous release


    - the new TOTAL NET ORDER VALUE is higher than the old one.

    The total net order value is linked to CEKKO-GNETW for a purchase order,

    CEBAN-GSWRT for a purchase requisition item-wise release and CEBAN-GFWRT

    for a purchase requisition overall release.

    If you have maintained a Tolerance for value changes during release

    (V_161S-TLFAE), the release strategy is reset when the value of the

    document is higher than the percentage you have specified and if the

    document is still subject to the previous release strategy.

    Review the SAP note 365604 and 493900 for more

    information about Release strategy.

      Hi Neha,

      Please look at the Question 2(a) of the attached Note 365604 for restrictions that apply for retriggering of release strategies.

      "Characteristics of class should be linked to corresponding fields of CEKKO (for purchase orders).

      2. Settings in the classification

      a) The characteristics of the class used must all be linked to the corresponding fields of structure CEBAN or CEKKO (for purchase orders)."

      Therefore only the fields present in structure CEKKO can be used as reference fields. Fields USRC1 and USRC2 can be used for any fields. If you are using fields USRC1 or USRC2 then these need to be filled in the userexit EXIT_SAPLEBND_004.

      There is more information in Note 365604 that might help you with your requirement. Note 371667 is also relevant.
