    Hey Bhanu,

    I am trying to do this scenario and not able to auto attach WCA (Not WA) in the work order generated from preventive maintenance plan.

    OILJ Screen 1

    Task list operation is assigned with WCA#

    WCA is not auto assigned to work order on creation from preventive maintenance plan.

    Let me know if it works only for enhanced model such as Auto creation of Work Approval alone.

      Hi Ayman,

      Please try the below User Field Settings.

      The First User Field must be for Key of the WCM Object, which is acting as reference i.e.,  Number of the WCM Object.

      The Second User Field must be for Type of the WCM Object, which is acting as reference.

      Try with WCD Template first.

      Run RIWC0016 from SE38. The screens are quite user friendly.

      Let me know if you have any issues.

      Regards

      Veera

    Hi Ayman,

    I have listed out the steps below. Please try and let me know. I have made a detailed procedure with screen shots in excel. Cant figure out how to put it here.

    Step 1: Create User Fields
    [OILJ] | Maintain Field key and Description |
    Step 2: Create WCD Template
    [WCR1] This will act as a Reference Template, using which, system will generate automatic WCM Objects.
    Step 3: Create General Maintenance Task List
    [IA05] | Maintain Operation details |
    | Select the Operation with Control Key = WCM | Menu Bar | Operation | User Data | Enter User Fields |
    | Save the Task List |
    Step 4: Create Maintenance Plan
    [IP01] | Enter Task List Created in earlier step |
    Step 5: Release the Maintenance Order
    [IP10]
    Step 6: Create WCM Objects
    [SE38] | Enter the Program RIWC0016 | Execute |Select All WCM Objects to be created | Execute |
    | Enter Order Number | Execute |
