Automatic PO Creation thru assign PR to source of supply (me57)


I'd like to have an automatically created PO out of my PR thru ME57. I assign the PR to a source. and press the nice button for generate PO.

But then it doesn't generate the PO, it just shows me the me21n with the PR in the document overview in the left.

I found a setting in customizing: mm/consumption based planning( procurement proposals/ Define Conversion of PR into PO.

There i set the tick for auto 'save PO when assigning' which says: Indicates whether purchase order items, RFQ items or scheduling agreement delivery schedule lines are to be generated automatically from the assigned purchase requisition items.

But it didn't work.

In a nutshell, can you tell how to configure automatic po generation thru me57?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards, Paul.


You probably know that you can schedule ME59N to run in background (maybe every 1 hour)

Then just use ME56 instead of ME57. do your source assignment and save.

Next ME59N job will catch the source assigned requisition and convert it to a PO.
