Way to link new PO confirmation to original confirmation

Hi Experts,

Need some advice here.

Currently in my SAP PO confirmation, we have the following behaviour:

After PO is raised and sent to supplier, the supplier respond back with Order confirmation and my PO confirmation will be updated as:

Committed Date Commited Qty Seq

3 Apr 2010 500 1

5 Apr 2010 1000 2

Due to whatever reason, the supplier have a need to change the commitment and thus sent us a new PO confirmation IDoc and our confirmation become:

Committed Date Comitted Qty Seq

3 Apr 2010 200 3

5 Apr 2010 500 4

9 Apr 2010 150 5

10 Apr 2010 500 6

12 Apr 2010 150 7

Is there any way to configure in SAP such that I know seq 3 and seq 5 and seq 7 is actually the re-commitment of the original seq 1 and seq 4 and Seq 6 are the re-commitment of the original seq 2.

My problem is that my user want to know the original commitment date after supplier re-commit and link the re-commitment with the original commitment. My limited understanding of SAP is that this is not possible and even if I reconstruct this from the PO history of the confirmation, there's alot of guess work involved an in situation above, the chance of getting the right linkage might not even be possible.

Anybody can enlighten me if the above is possible with standard SAP config without heavy customization?

Thanks in advance
