    even if you are having more than 1 one release group, you need to assign the same class.

    you can assign the same strategy code to a different release group with different char values

    from the point of data organization, you can have 02 for PO, 03 for quotations etc which all use the same release class, or have differnet groups for diff company codes

    Hi,

    If you are using Table Structure:CEKKO,then you can have different Release Groups.For Example:
    Release Group for Purchase Order (PO)
    Release Group for Contract(CO)
    Release Group for RFQ(RF)

    But again ,if business needed again you can drag down relese structure for Purchase Order
    You can have Release Group for Purchase Order as P1, P2 and P3 etc....

    Hi,

    Normally we cannot have
    more than one class defined in a release strategy for overall release!

    (and you will receive message (ME492))

    The following documents are subject to overall release:

    Contracts, Purchase Orders, Scheduling Agreements, and RFQ's

    This is why we are receiving error ME492 when accessing the transactions
    :

    Release procedure for Purchase Order
    Release procedure for Contract
    Release procedure for Scheduling Agreement
    Release procedure for RFQ's

    This is the reason that the system is prompting us to "Check release
    classes". This message (ME492) is issued when we assign a release group
    to several release classes, and this is not possible. Please also
    review the following note:

    493900 FAQ: Release Strategy

    For purchase orders you do not have overall and item releases. For
    purchase orders these are only overall releases. You can only have one
    class for purchase order releases. It is not possible to use different
    classes for purchase orders releases.

    Purchase orders, requests for quotation, contracts and scheduling
    agreements all use the same class.

    It is not possible to have more than one class define in the release
    strategy but it is possible to define different characteristics within
    the same class.
