Delivery block indicator on Intercompany purchase orders?

Hello,

On Sales orders, there is a clear Delivery Block fied at header and another one at Item level.

In an intercompany flow, I would like to have a similar field on the purchase orders.

I don't find it in the standard fields, would you have an idea of how to do it/which purchase order field to use at least at the item level?

I was told that I can try to use the release strategy functionality, but it applies to the whole PO.

Do you have any better solution?

If not, do you know where is this release strategy field?

Thanks

Matthieu

    Hi Matthieu,

    It's true. Note 498143 doesn't suggest anything (FAQ note about deliveries in STO). I think in 2 possibilities

    1. Use a field you believe you will never need it (difficult because there are not many fields availables, I agree) and rule the creation of deliveries with userexits for VL10 (for this see note 198137).

    2. Enhance your EKKO table with a customer field and create a view (tab) for mantaining it in ME21N. Use badis ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST and ME_GUI_PO_CUST. After, use the userexits to rule the creation of deliveries. You will need the help of an expert ABAPer because to rule the PAI and PBO events is a nightmare.

    It's an idea. I hope this helps you

    Regards

    Eduardo

    Hello,

    I was mentionned that the release strategy functionality could also work to set a delivery block.

    Unless the PO is released, the delivery can't be created (this functionality applying to whole PO and for all line items).

    Could someone who has already used this release strategy for delivery block precise how it would work?

    Or if you have used some other process like the developments mentionned by Eduardo I would also be interested to have more detailed.

    Thanks

    Matthieu
