Output type is not automatically proposed

Hi All,

We have created a output type for PO(for ALE) and done all the settings in NACE. Problem is , output type is not automatically proposed by system.

In output determination procedure "Manually" check box is not ticked for that output type. Please suggest what I am missing .

    Dear Soni

    SPRO- MM-Purchasing---Messages- Message type - Output Control- Define message type for PO.

    Create your output type here. Preferred way is to copy the SAP given output type and copy it to a custom one.

    The output type definition, contains, link to the access sequence, in addition to other parameters such as print program, multiple issueing, default values, etc.

    Then in the same config node, goto Message determination schema. And make sure you have your output type mentioned there. If n ot create an entry in the message determination schema.

    Then in the under

    SPRO- MM-Purchasing-Messages Forms( Layout Sets ) for messages-- Assign form and output program for output type for the message , assign the form and print program. General practice is to copy std form / Program copy it into your own and assign here to the output type.

    Then if you have specific requirements for the output form, you need to modify the PO form you have created.

    To print the PO, you need to create condition record for that output type using transaction MN04. Alternatively, you can assign the printer in the configuration to the associated Purchasing Group.

    You can also use t code NACE to do all of these steps.

    You Better Take advise from MM Consultant and provide him with the Driver program and smartform name.

    Thanking you

    Hi Jitendra Soni,

    Here are chances for not proposing the output type.

    1. Condition record maintained is not satisfied

    2. VOFM - Output Control routine restriction.

    Just to confirm,

    1.Is client copy of transport done, if unit testing client is in same server as that of development?

    2.Is Partner profiles maintained with that output type? (Not relevant it seems, but to complete the full process)

    Please check.

    Regards,

    SG

    Hi Jitendra,

    Check whether it is because of release strategy. See whether the PO is released & do it in ME29N and see whether that helps.

    With regards,

    Gokul
