How to choose diffetent PO types in R/3 from a SC in Classic Scenario

Hello everyone,

I am working with SRM 5.0 in a classic scenario and I have a problem. I create a SC, then it is sent to sourcing cockpit where I assign it a vendor to create a PO, but I can't choose what kind of PO I want to create.

In PPOMA_BB, the user has at least 2 different PO's in attribute BSA and attribute DP_PROC_TY. When I create a PO from a Bid invitation I can choose this kind of POs.

Do you know how to choose different POs type from SC??

For backend products,In standard you can not choose what PO you want. By default the backend document type 'EC' is chosen. In number ranges for SC followon documents the interval number 'PO' would correspond to backend EC document external interval number. This is the standard behaviour though you might have maintained BSA attribute with other values in addition to EC.

For local products you can choose the PO transaction type. After youclick on create purchase order, in the next screen you will get an option choose your transaction type, provided you have maintained these in PPOMA_BBP for BSA attribute.

Hope this clarifies.
