How do we get the Purchase order number from a delivery.

Say i have an Purchase order and from that i have created a delivery.

In my output for the delivery, i need the preceeding document number for the delivery which is the PO number.

How do i get the same. what table should i look in. I checked the VBFA table, but i am not able to get the same there...

is there any table with which we can get this info.

thanks and Regards,

Hi Gauravjit,

I suppose you are speaking of Stock Transfer Scenario. In this the Document Flow does not updates the PO number.

The link between Deliver & PO number will have to be established through common firld in PO table & Delivery Table. This requires to be explored at T.Code: VL04 / VL10B / VL10D level & you should certainly get the link. I am not in front of SAP system, else I would try to get the details & furnish the same.

After checking i found that it is stored in LIPS Table and field VGBEL. And also i would like to add table VBFA (Document Flow if the same is active).

Rewards point if it helps.
