    You can easily add a field in ME21n with an ABAPER.

    Implications

    - If you add a field just for PO reference, its fine. If you want to display the field in PO output, then you need to change smartform

    - If you want this field to flow to GR or IR, then you need to check other user exits which carries this field to GR / IR

    - If you want this field to displayed in any standard report, then you need to modify those reports.

    - or if you want this field should be automatically filled from material master or vendor master, you need to find those exits.

    - If you want to add authorization object to restrict the display of this field to any user, then you need to add it in the auth abject and in the role.. check with basis team

    - If you want to activate whether this field should be optional or mandatory, you need to code it in the program itself as standard field settings wont work for this new field
