This error usually occurs because of printer settings being incorrect. Check in ME23n under messages button, what settings are there and then check in MN05 what message record is set for PO. Both output types should be same as seen in MN05. If they are not same, you need to manually correct the output type to the output type mentioned in MN05.
HI ,Thanks for your reply.
I have checked as per suggetion there output type have not maintained.I have tried the same in Quality there also output tupe have not maintained but at the time release It selecting the output type automatically and purchase order got released with out any above error.Could you please guide me on this and I don,t have the authorization in Production for SM13
but at the time release It selecting the output type automatically and purchase order got released with out any above error.
confusing, can you explain this in more detail.
When you create a PO which is subject to a release strategy, then the message is immediatly created, but will not be outputted until the release is made.
As the release is done from a differnt transaction, it cannot show the error to the user, thats why it ends in an update failure.
Thanks for your reply and fpr me also it is confusing.When I am creating the PO which is subjected to Release strategy output type is not triggering it is coming as a blank in messages tab and after release the PO purchase order got released and output type appear automatically.This is happening in my case could you please help on this.
I deleted all the condition records before release for the purchase order subjected to release and tried to release the PO and no output type has been triggered and PO got released without any error So i think the problem is not with ouput type.Is there any other reason for the above error could you please guide me.
Thanks and Regards
You need to have an output type to get the PO printed and usually this error occurs when message records are not properly maintained. You need to maintain an output record in MN04, check whether its maintained correctly in MN05, then when you create and save PO, look under messages button whether its picking the correct message record you created in MN04. If its not bringing the correct message record, there is another check in backend which is causing this problem. Let me get that one for you
Look up this path if your messages set in MN04 is not populating correctly under messages button in PO.
Spro>MM>Purchasing>messages>output control>message types>define message types for PO, then click execute,double click on fine tune control: PO, here look for check marks under U field, if check marks are on for other output type, delete those checks and save, usually these checks override your MN04 settings. Once these checks are disabled your problem will be solved.
I came across this problem myself, and this is how it got resolved.
Hope I am helpfull..

Thanks in advance
Thnank you very much for giving the better solution Jürgen and Afshad
I got the problem with SM13 transaction in production.Problem is that in the ouput type program Somebody might have changed the program with diffrent requests and the new requests are not sent to production in sequence then we got the syntax error in the program and finally rectified in the program
thank you once again
