F-48 & F-47 Vendor Down payment
We are in need to add purchase order in vendor down payment requests and in vendor down payment. Purchase order field needs to add as mandatory field.
Please advise how to add PO field as mandatory in vendor down payment requests and in vendor down payment.
Thanks & Regards,

You have to activate the purchase order field in the field status variant and also make it a mandatory field in FI validation.OB28.
Note that the purchase order number entered in the down payment request (F-47) is only for information purposes.
But when the actual down payment is made (F-48), SAP also updates the down payment amount as commitment against the purchase order. This is then visible in ME23n etc.
Also when posting MIRO, system gives a pop up stating that down payment is present for the invoice.
We have in a project implemented this validation with additional checks for the amount. For eg, purchase order is mandatory only for down payments beyond a certain amount. All this is possible using the FI validation.
