Enhancement of existing follow-on documents

There is no means for the Purchaser to add new requirements displayed in Sourcing Cockpit to existing follow-on documents such as Purchase Order, Contract or RFx.


This feature allows the operational Purchaser to update or enhance existing follow-on documents such as Purchase Order, RFx or Contract from requirements in Sourcing Cockpit.

Purchaser can select one or more items which needs to be added and click on the button 'Enhance'. Once the button is pressed a popup is displayed in which Purchaser can select the follow-on document type and search for the document in which the items are to be appended. While enhancing the document there is an option to save the document in Saved status explicitly. Else, the document's existing status will be retained.

The Purchasing Organization, Purchasing Group and the Supplier assigned to the Shopping Cart item and the follow-on document should be the same to enhance the document. This can be influenced using the BAdI, /SAPSRM/CHECK_ENHANCE_DOC. This BAdI can be used to define the criteria for checking the follow-on documents before they are enhanced.

Only those documents with the following status can be enhanced:


     Awaiting Approval


This feature is enabled only for Shopping Cart items created in Extended Classic mode. Purchaser will not be allowed to enhance existing Contracts and RFx with non hierarchical service items. Also, external requirements cannot be added to existing follow-on documents.
