Sales order creation from PO


Hi All,

we are creating a purchase order. The output type in PO is creating an outbound idoc (from IDOC_OUTPUT_ORDERS FM in partner profile ).

Now we want as as soon as the above outbound idoc is created from PO, we also want a sales order to be created in the same SAP instance

1 ) How to do this. do we need to code in some user exit available for FM IDOC_OUTPUT_ORDERS for PO ? . If yes pls suggest the exit name and request to tell us how to trigger sales order creation from such user exit ?

2) I have heard that I need to maintain a partner profile for my SAP client system( as logical system ) in WE20 with inbound parameters as IDOC_INPUT_ORDERS" but my question is how the data from PO will be passed to IDOC_INPUT_ORDERS " ?

Ps note that Iam aware that data in tables EDPAR and EDSDC needs to be maintained but my main worry is questions 1 and 2 above.
