    You can create the PO in background by using t.code ME59. In order for this program to create the PO in the background, check the box Automatic PO in the material master ->purchasing tab and in the vendor master ->purchasing data view. You may need to schedule the background job to run every hour or any other frequency depending upon your business requirement.

    Hi Joris,

    In Third Party sales Process, only PR creation will take place online.

    You need to convert PR into PO afterwards. Use following T-Codes :

    ME5A - See list of Purchase Requisition

    ME57 - Assign vendor & convert PR into PO

    ME22N - Change Purchase Order if required

    ME28 - Release PO

    After that you can carry out MIGO.

    I hope this answer will suffice your requirement.

    Revert with your feedback.
