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}
