Order Acknowledgement


Scenario: P.O Order Acknowledged by Vendor on earliest date quoated than in P.O.

This can be re-updated in P.O Delivery date.

Can I post this as Inbound Delivery also ???

Please enlighten me about Inbound Delivery and the purpose as well the usage.

What are the settings required.

Also please some light on Outbound delivery.

Order acknowledgements and In-bound deliveries are different. Order ack. is just acknowledgement to your PO where as In-bound delivery is a one level prior confirmation before Goods Receipt.

Both have different confirmation control keys.

You can post Order Acknowledgements in the PO ( in ME22N ) change mode, manually. Whereas In-bound deliveries are required to be posted through VL31N. Then, they will be updated automatically in the PO (Observe the Confirmations Tab in the PO).

Out-bound deliveries are one step prior to Good Issue for delivery.

In-bound and Out- bound deliveries are considered for MRP, and Order acknowledgement are not considered by MRP for material planning.
