can someone explain me when do i need new doc.type in p.o. what could be the scenario.
how to respond this question in interview.
1) suppose you want separate report for import PO and domestic Po in t-code like ME2N,ME2L in that case we have to define new Po document type so we can get report by document type same will applicable to Asset purchasing also
2) you want different pricing procedure assignment in MM then in that case Po document will help like import and domestic pricing procedure
3) suppose IN service Po user may forget to use item categories D or he may used different item categorizes other than D so in that case we can define new document type and allow only item categories D so he can not use wrong item categories in PO
Hi, Concept of Different Document type is only to categorize different purchasing scenario & to have different Number Ranges. Eg: You can make all the PO with one document type, but for evaluation later on it will become difficult, so to make the search & evaluation easy for user you make different PO Document types which will help you in searching & evaluating different PO categorizes, You can make PO document type for Local Purchase, Import Purchase, Service, Subcontracting, Stock transfer etc. etc.
