Hi Friends,


I have defined an output tyoe for my purchase orders. I want to assign this output type to my PO such that whenever I create a new PO I dont have to assign the output everytime to take printout.


Can someone please help me how to achieve this.

    For automatic determination of Print output for PO follow these steps :


    Use T.code NACE>Select Application EF (Purchase Order)>Select Condition records>a Pop will appear with the Output types Like NEU etc>Select the Output type required by you-->Double click on that a pop up will come with some Key combination's like


    i.) Pur. Org/Vendor for EDI

    ii.) Doc. type/Pur. Org/Vendor ...............and so on. You select the correct key combination which you maintain


    select the appropriate Key combination and then maintain the same and then save.


    Now create a Purchase Order for testing you will see the automatic message determination in your Purchase Order.

    As all customizing setting done for PO print out & then maintain condition record for message type in t.code : MN04 with PO document type combination with other details


    Now Just fine tune your output (message) type for Purchase Order  in following path:


    SPRO>MM>Purchasing>Message>Output control>Message tyoes> Define message type for Purchase Order-->Fine-Tuned Control: Purchase Order


    Now here select the check box corresponding to your output(message) type  to have print output for this message type is automatically displayed & save.


    Now try creating PO & you will have default message type in the PO
