I have one doubt.
PO Qty = 10, GR Qty = 7 No further GR expected, so i want to close PO.
Shall i close PO by setting delivery completion indicator at Line level & block the line.
Or i have to delete the line item??
I observed, in both these cases, system is allowing me to post GR.
So which one is more feasible & how??
Could you please throw some light..
Thanks in advance.
When you have posted a GR for partial quantity, it is recomended to put the delivery completion indicator not to delete the line PO line items.
If you feel that yoy are not expecting any more quantities against that PO just update the delivery completion indicator and hence this PO will be treated as closed PO.
As proposed by sap:
To stop the system from proposing a quantity in Transactions MB01 or MIGO and to prevent a GR posting, you can proceed as follows: ( choose any of these)
1. Reduce the purchase order quantity to the previous GR quantity.
2. Block the purchase order item.
(ME22N: Block pushbutton; ME22 Menu -> Edit -> Block)
3.Fill the date field for the 'Latest Possible Goods Receipt' (LEWED) in the purchase order item. If you do this and you enter a GR document after this date, the system issues message M7163, which you must set as an error message in Customizing.
3rd step is proposed.
just want to add one more thing regarding blocking of PO items.
the lock is meant as a short term solution, to restrict postings referencing this item, until a certain issue is cleared.
for example the buyer does not know the exact price when he creates the PO, so he blocks the items to avoid that anyone postes a receipt before he has entered the correct price (as it would cause incorrect stock postings etc.)
Items with a lock are never considered as closed. It even restricts the PO from beeing archived.
