Return PO

Hi I am creating a return PO using ME21N and flaging the indicator return.

But can anybody tell me that how we can setup a link between the original PO number to this PO. Also I am able to create the return PO of as many quantity as I want irrespective of what is the original PO quantity.

Please help

Hi Lekhram,

Please find that a Return PO is just like a original PO with a Return Indicator Flagged On. So you can not cross refer on PO with another. Moreover Ref. Purchasing Doc field can be used to bring the Data on the new PO creation from Original PO but you can store for Infomation point of view at Tracking Number or at Header level as explained by earlier consultants.

And you can create a PO for as many Items as you want it doenst matter becuase it is not impacing from Financial Point of view or from Inventory Point of View. What is more important is the second step. ME20 in which you are providing or creating the return delivery for that PO it will not find that much of material in system and will only allow as much quantity as you have.

So there are check point on that.

But a RO is not having any link to Original PO.

On the other hand you can do a 122 Movement against that PO and then you can have a Link between the Original PO and the Return PO.

So the way your business wants you can go ahead.
