How to avoid processing same requisition

Hello Gurus,

My team is working for the same POrg and PGroup and we are having trouble with division of work. As we know, error messages are shown when someone else has processed the same PR we are trying to process or are currently processing it at the time. But how do we avoid this altogether? Is there any flagging method we can add to tell others we are working on a particular PR so they don't have to open the PR to receive the error? This will help increase efficiency and saves a lot of time, especially working for a global company.

Hi,

We had a similar requirement where we had approached with a different idea. We have used the "Tracking Number" field in PR to update the buyer user ID and used standard ME5A report to track the same. You may check whether you can approach in a similar way!

Impossible to avoid processing same requisition if you are using same purchasing group for all purchasers.

I think better if you are making purchasing group for each purchaser and separate materials to some purchasing group. So, each purchaser have clear responsible.

If you are using quota arrangement and source list then you can using tcode ME59N (by background job) for create PO from PR. PO also can send to vendor automatically if you are using output type which support for this purpose. This method is very efficient because no need create and send PO manually by purchasers.

Appreciate your reply. We have been using different Pgroups all this while, but moving forward we would like to have no individual Pgroups instead only main ones.Therefor each Pgroups will consist of many buyers who are responsible to purchase items related.
