    the alert is usally given to the user himself

    Based on your customizing the error message 06 207 it is either a warning or an error message.

    customizing of the tolerance is made in OLME > purchase order > tolerance..

    if you want send these messages to somebody else, then you have to develope this yourself.

    Maybe it is easier to develope a report that compares PO price with MAP according to the set tolerance and lists only the cases where the variance is higher. then chedule this report to run once a day, and send the spool directly from the batchjob using a distribution list.

    If you do it per program directly when this message gets triggered in the PO, then you may even send messages where the users just had a typo and corrected it before saving. Could be a kind of overhead

    Hi,

    In std. Scenerio this shd not work. Just because the material price may vary as per the quotations which depends on normal floating rate in current market...

    Regards

      Hi,

      The material price will of course vary from material to material in PR document. actually the requirement is; we will fix a certain upper tolerance percentage somewhere, say 10%. Now for eg. If the material price in PR doc is 100 and price of the same material in PO document is 111, then system should send an alert message to certain users informing that price of material "AAAA" against PR number XXXX has been changed from 100 to 111 in PO number YYYY.

      As in this case, price of material in PO has increased by 11% whereas tolerance is for 10%.

      So, this needs to be configured.

      Request to all experts to kindly help on this.

      regards,

    This can not be mapped in standard, you need to go for some sort of ABAP validation.

    As such there is no functionality satisfying your requirement. However you can acheive this by z developement. You can use tables EBAN and EKKO for z developement.
