Sender in PO emailed to vendor


Here is an issue somwhere between MM and BC (workflow).

Let be a PO created by BUYER (= Sap User) which is not subject to a release strategy sent out to vendor - the sender seen by the vendor in his mailbox is BUYER.

Now when the same PO is subject to a release strategy and workflow applied to PO release activity performed by MANAGER (=Sap User) - the sender seen by the vendor in his mailbox is now MANAGER.

My issue: MANAGER will not be involved in PO follow up with the vendor for the second case of PO and thus should not be shown in the process. A release is an internal (and possibly confidential) process not to be communicated outside the company.

Question: how can I avoid suche side-effect?

Backgroung information: I re-use a standard workflow template WS2...75, SAP is ECC6.

    it is standard SAP design, however, SAP has provided a modification with OSS Note 561593 - Sender of the message (fax and/or email) is wrong

    • Dear Andrzej,

      We have an scenario similar to yours. The vendors are receiving the PO's coming from the approver as a sender (and not from the buyer)

      We have implement that note OSS Note 561593 (only the changes in ME_MESSAGES_FIND FM) and we still have the same issue that you had. Even we are not using Adobe Forms but SAPScript, and the records in table NAST are pointing to the Buyer (Field USNAM), the sender field in SOST is still pointing to the Approver (PO Releaser).

      How did you actually solve this? Is it necesary to implement the corrections in FORM ADOBE_PRINT_OUTPUT even we are using SAPScrip?

      Thanks in advance for your answer.
