PO Release Strategy


The release code is a two-character ID allowing a person to release (clear, or approve) a requisition or an external purchasing document. The release codes is basically controlled via a system of authorizations (authorization object M_EINK_FRG).

Use SE12, structure CEKKO to check all the fields available for controlling the Purchase Order.

e.g. If the total value for the Purchase Order exceeds 10,000, release strategy 01 is assigned to the Purchase Order. There is only one characteristic created in this example. For controlling the Purchase Order type, create characteristic for CEKKO-BSTYP and the value NB.

CT04 - Create Characteristic e.g. NETVALUE

Click Additional data Table name CEKKO Field name GNETW and press enter

(for currency dependent field, you are prompt to enter the currency which the system then converts the currency of the Purchasing document into this currency)

In the Basic data (X refers to tick),

X Mutliple values

X Interval values

In the Value data, in the Char. value column, type >10000 and press enter

Save your data

(make sure there are no error messages)

Once the Purchase Order is not release, buyers will not be able to print the Purchase Order.

Goods Receipts will be shown with Message no. ME 390 - Purchasing document XXXXXXX not yet released.

In 4.6c, Purchase Order with Release Strategy have a tabs at the end of the Header. This allowed the buyers to check the release status of the Purchase Order.

The person with the release authorization have to use ME28 to release the Purchase Order.

Why we should use 032 as class type?

because the 032 clas type is specifically defined by SAP for release strategy

What is the purpose of this class ?

based on the calss the system will check the values as per the class for the po, reqs, contract etc

How it is linked to classification system ?

once oyu defined the calss using classtype 032 and then you assign the characteristics to this calss and then this class will be assgiend to release classification in the IMG

What is the purpose of classification ?

the classificationis used to detrmine the relase srtategy as per the char. defined in the classification and then against the value of that it will check the values of the ourchasing document and if determined as per the classification then system will block that document
