Dear Gurus,

The requirement is to make the AB order acknowledgement mandatory in PO?

Will it be possible in standard SAP?

    Hi,

    Set up Order acknowledgement required at the vendor level (in purchasing tab), so all purchase orders created for the vendor have the order ackowledgement reqd checked (EKPO-KZABS).

    Also, the material master must be checked with the order acknowledgement requried in the Purchasing value key in the purchsing tab.

    Hence when the PO is created the Order acknowledgement field will be checked.

    Regards,

    Shijo

    Hello,

    In this case, you do not have to enter anything when you create a purchase order (or scheduling agreement). SAP recommends that you set the Acknowledgment requirement indicator, since you can then send out messages urging vendors to submit outstanding acknowledgments.

    If the indicator has been set in the relevant purchasing info record, it is adopted in the purchase order.

    When your vendor sends you an order acknowledgment, enter the acknowledgment number on the item detail screen. If you wish to assign the same acknowledgment number to all items, you can use the fast change facility. (Edit ® Fast change.)

    You cannot enter any dates or quantities, and are thus unable to influence materials planning. Neither can you run any analyses of confirmations.
