Automatic PO from shipment Cost

Dear SAP Gurus

I am trying to create PO automatically from the Shipment Cost (VI01), it is getting created too but with the wrong PO Document Type. It always create PO doc. type NB, istead of our Z doc. Type XXXX.

Can you guide me where I am missing the configuration.

Thanks in advance.

Hi JP,

Here, the transfer values are supplied as follows:

Order type (BSART):'Define default values for order type' from the purchasing Customizing. If a default value is set for Transaction 'ME21N', this is used, otherwise the one for 'ME21'. In the SAP standard system, this is order type 'NB' (T160-BSART).


You can change the data of the purchase order header customer-specifically (EXIT_RV54POCR_006) via enhancement V54U0006.

See OSS Note 506605 - Info: PO generation when transferring shipment costs

Actually all my answer is a copy/paste from the note, OSS is your friend

Best Regards,

Define service item category D to the Z doc type of PO in OMEC transaction code and then check.
