ASN Delivery Date

Former Member

Hi all,

We are running MM-SUS scenario with the following components: SRM 7.01 and ECC EHP5,

Q1:

The problem we are having is that if the Delivery Date of the Purchase Order is in the past, it is not possible for the supplier to generate an ASN.

Then, the purchaser has to modify the delivery date so that the supplier can enter the ASN.

Is it a way to let the supplier create the ASN with the delivery date of the PO in the past?

Q2:

When confirming the Purchase Order in SUS, a confirmation is generated in the Purchase Order in ECC. Is it a way to update the delivery date of the Purchase Order line item with the date of the confirmation provided by the supplier stored in ECC in the Order Acknowledment AB confirmation.

Thanks

Ezequiel

In our system, the vendor is allowed to change the delivery date when they enter the confirmation.  Then, because of the way we have SUS configured, they are able to enter the ASN even if the PO on the SAP side is not changed.  We found that there would be too many delays if we waited for the PO itself to be changed.  The only time the vendor has to wait for a change is when they want to enter the invoice.  Since we do not allow the vendor to alter the prices, they have to communicate with the buyer to update the PO.

Hi Monique,

Could you please explain this further:

"In our system, the vendor is allowed to change the delivery date when they enter the confirmation.  Then, because of the way we have SUS configured, they are able to enter the ASN even if the PO on the SAP side is not changed."

How do you achieve this configuration on the SUS side ?

We would like do the same in our system.

Thanks;

From SPRO, go to SAP Supplier Relationship Management --> Supplier Self Services --> Cross Application Basic Settings --> Settings for Documents --> Define Settings for Follow-On Documents for Inconsistent POs.  We checked the box "allow follow-on docs for discrepancy between PO and PCO items" and selected SUS PO Response in the default values box.

Vendors still have to change the date if the delivery date is in the past but are allowed to create the ASN without waiting for the PO to be changed on the SAP side.

Hope this helps.

Hello Ezequiel,

I just happen to try for the questions you mentioned:

Q1: ASN from SUS can be posted for POs that have delivery date in past. By default system picks current system date for ASN document as Delivery date. 

Q2: When Purchaser has received response from SUS supplier, he can go ahead and edit the PO line items with respective delivery dates as provided by supplier.

Hope it answers your queries. In case your system is behaving differently then raise OSS for the same for support to check further.

If your queries are answered, please award points

Hi Mridula,

Q1: In our system if Delivery date is in the past it is not possible to create the ASN, the button is not available.

Hello Ezequiel,

In that case, I guess it would be better if you raise OSS for the SRM-SUS-COF, and let support analyse the same .

Q1.

The standard system behavior is not same as of yours.

The parameter

"<InboundDeliveryCompletedIndicator>false</InboundDeliveryCompletedIndicator>" in the XML data decides whether the ASN is possible. This parameter depends on the confirmation control key maintained in the PO.

Please check your XML payload for the parameter in ECC and check when is sent out. I think it is sent in the PO change interface (change of delivery date).

You can get some idea why during initial PO creation it is not sent out.

Q2.

In ECC you can achieve through enhancement ME_BAPI_PO_CUST.

With Regards,

Malay

Answe :-Yes, Buyer/ Purchaser has to modify/change the future Delivery date and hence forth Supplier can create ASN .
