DLFL flag

We are not able to raise a DLFL flag for a production order, due to following open purchase order error message

For given purchase order 4501560546, following is verified

-> Goods reciept for respective purchase order is recieved
-> Delivery completion indicator is set (automatic under delivery tab)

-> Invoice is raised

-> Final invoice is checked (manual check under Invoice tab)

As mentioned, for given purchase order, total goods reciept is performed, followed by invoicing (delivery completion indicator is set) but production order

raises the purchase order as OPEN when we try to set DLFL flag. Any thoughts on why purchase order is still considered OPEN and how to close the purchase order, withOUT setting deletion indicator (trash icon)

Business Process:

We raise a production order, with one of the operations being outplant operation {for which we raise a service purchase order with account assignment

category F}, and when parts are recieved back from outplant vendor, we confirm final operation of the production order, which inturn updates production order delivered quantity and purchase order goods reciept quantity

Please note:
-> The only time we are able to raise a DLFL flag for a production order, is, when purchase order deletion indicator is set,which we are trying to avoid

-> Currently we are R/3 4.7 with support package (SAPKH47025)

-> Following SAP notes (note: 650829,773397) are verified, and it looks like they are already implemented {Currently we are R/3 4.7 with support package (SAPKH47025) -> Software component SAP_APPL}

    I'm pretty sure the note 559824 has been implemented in your system (since you mentioned the current package is SAPKH47025 on 4.7)

    If the note is active in the system you cannot activate DLFL for production order unless e deletion indicator is set in the purchase order item.

    • Arun,

      Thanks for update again. I didn't know your concern was to be able to cancel/repost the invoice, yes in that case system will not allow because the process steps TECO, CLSD, DLFL comes after setting deletion flag for service purchase order, then you may have to undo DLFL, CLSD, and TECO in that sequence and then undelete the PO item which may not be practical in most cases.
