Workflow Process- PO Cancellation/Rejection

Dear Experts,

We are configuring Workflow Email generation while cancelling a Purchase Order in SAP through ME29N. Can anyone please guide me on how to configure release strategy for PO cancellation? Currently we are on SAP version 4.7. I have configured the workflow for PO approval, however unable to find the way for configuring PO reject in SAP MM.

PO reject/cancellation is also considered as a change process in workflow. In this case how do we go about the workflow set up? Any inputs for this?

Thanks for your help in advance.

    Hello Damodar,

    if I'm not mistaken, there is no standard workflow for event REJECTION_START of Business Object BUS2012 "Purchase Order"; feel free to develop your own workflow for this even (or include it in existing WF for Approval), if you have such requirement.

    Kind Regards

    • Hello Damodar,

      the differential factor you need is the even raised for object BUS2012 "Purchase Order":

        • PO is created (CREATED) and ready to be released (RELEASESTEPCREATED);
        • PO is rejected by approved (REJECTION_START & SIGNIFICANTLYCHANGED);
        • PO rejection is reset by buyer and is ready for new approval (REJECTON_STOP & RELEASESTEPCREATED);

        So at the end you only need to start new approval wf for event RELEASESTEPCREATED -- which event are you using, then?

        Kind Regards
