Hello, we are using PO confirmation in order to track the orders.
Each time we capture a confirmation (under the confirmation tab), a message is generated for Purchase order changed. We would like to customize the output determination for confirmation.
We went in customizing in table T166C (Fields relevant to printout of change) and our entries were not there (Table Ekes; EKPO-LABNR...) I added entries not checked, but the message is still generated automatically everytime I enter confirmation.
Is there a way to bypass these Purchase order change messages when we do item confirmation?
Go to SPRO-MM-Purchasing-Messages-output control-message type-define message type for Purchase order
here in Fine-Tuned Control: Purchase Order - you should not enter the 2 against the AUFB conditon type
if you have that than remove the conditon with 2.
then you will not see this issue,
Last option before you ask developer to check the SAP Script or Smart Form you use
go to Version managment settings and check that did you activated the vendrion management
if the version management for PO is active, this also play a role to printing
SPRO-MM-Purchasing- Version managment
Set Up Version Management for External Purchasing Documents
Set Up Change Displays
Thanks for the Reply Charlie, but version management is not activated...
And for the sapscript were using, it's the standard Meldruck from SAP...
Anything else to suggest?
I would like to enter Po confirmation without generating a NEU message for order modification.
than the last thing what i can think of it is, do you have the EDI activated for this output type
than go to WE20 transaction and
Go to Partner type LI and look for your vendor number
double click on it and you will see the outbound parameter screen on your right side
remove the ORDCHG from the outbound parameter for that vendor than you are fine
If there is any change in PO, output message is always determined
If change is made to field which is print relevant then only
system output this message successfully otherwise that output
records becomes in error status with message ME140"No print-relevant changes to document exist" in case of print output and with message
ME760 "No IDOC items belonging to purchasing document found" in
case of EDI output type. This can be checked in processing log
of the message record.
So if you will enter confirmation, system will generate change
message but during processing, this output will be failed with
message type ME140 or ME760.
Please see note 28869 and 310004 also.
