We are on SAP 8.82 PL01
Currently, we have approval procedures set for A/R Invoice.
We want the same approval procedure to implement for service department.
Our set up is as follows :
A from Despatch Department
B from Despatch Department
C From Despatch Department
Now we want following addtion
A1 from Service Department
C1 from Service Department
I tried in the test Db as follows
Added A1 as originator
it updated successfully.
Added A1 as authorizer and system gave me message
can not update existing approval stage. Existing approval processes are based on current stage.
How do i achieve this ?
Or I need to write complete seperate set of queries and create new templates for this ?
I tried clearing all the inputs step by step.
but, system did not allow me to do so saying EXISTING PROCEDURES ARE BASED ON APPROVALS.
I ran approval status report for docs not approved and they do exists.
some of them are pending and some of them are rejected.
is this could be the reason why system is not allowing me to add the authorizer ?
if this is the case then how do i add an authorizer ?
or shall i go for altogether new stage ?
in test DB I want to try this by deleting pending drafts ?
how do i do that ?
I'm afraid drafts really get deleted this way ?
