Text Copying Rules

Hi Guys,

Hope to copy the text from the Purchase requisition to purchase order. Copying rules are not their for PR to PO. Can you please explain how to configure this?

In Standard SAP you cannot copy PR header text to PO

The reason is because SAP considers Purchase Requisition (PR) as an

"Internal Document". Therefore Purchase Requisition's Header Text are

not copied into the Purchase Order (PO).

As mentioned Purchase Requisition is an "Internal Document", thus the

field 'Text Note' in PR's Header is only for reference purpose.

It is even not displayed in the old transaction ME51.

The Header Note can only be entered and displayed in transaction ME51N.

There is NO Customizing for this text and NO COPY options available to

copy it to other purchasing documents.
