About Purchase order vendor confirmation
About Purchase order vendor confirmation, we can input the confirmation date in PO item confirmation view, using AB Order Acknowledgment
I have two question here:
- Can we update these confirmation date via mass Maintenance or batch upload? because we must input thousands of items everyday.
- Is there any report can display the difference between “Deliv date in PO item ” and ““Deliv date in confirmation view ”?
For example, Deliv date in PO item is 2012.05.31 and Deliv date in confirmation view is 2012.06.30
The vendor confirmation date in confirmation tab is the date which vendor acknowledges to deliver. For e.g. you have asked for goods to be delivered by 30th April (Del. date in PO), but vendor comes back saying he cannot do it on 30th but he will only be able to make it by 2nd of May (confirmation date in conf. tab).
SAP has provided confirmation tab for EDI vendors and actually confirmation tab details are automatically updated in PO if you have EDI setup with your vendor.
In case you want to track all the confirmations from vendor but you do not have EDI setup than unfortunately you will have to maintain it manually for each PO.
But I believe when you mentioned that you have thousands of items to be processed everyday...I believe you must be recording confirmations from your suppliers for all these items somewhere (either in mail or excel or something), if yes then its always possible to develop a simple lsmw or bdc to update POs, after collating details.
