Posting IR directly without GR posting for P.O

If you wanted to do IR directly for a purchase order without posting the GR, you can achive this functionality at SPRO level or master data level or even at purhase order level.

Controls in IMG activity:

Option1: Account assignment category level

Path-> IMG-> MM-> Purchasing-> Account assignment-> Maintain account assignment categories


Note: Since we cannot make any changes to the item category as per standard SAP, we can just verify whether the item category used in P.O allows IR without GR  or not.

Path-> IMG-> MM-> Purchasing->Define external representation of item categories


Controls in master data level:

Option1: Vendor master: (purchasing data view)


Option2: Purchase info record (purchasing org data 1 view):


Purchase order control: If P.O is already created in the system and you wanted to IR directly without GR posting,

then uncheck the ‘GR-based IV’  check box in the P.O item invoice tab as shown below.

      Hi Vijay,

      First of all thanks for sharing knowledge with community.

      I am just curious about 2nd option which you have pointed out i.e item category way. As per my understanding item category customization is not really allowed in standard system. The screenshot shared by you in this regard also shows relevant fields greyed out ( non-editable). Can you please throw some light with regards to how can 2nd option be implemented in system.

      warm regards
