Purchasing document type linkages purchase requisition to purchase order document type

Dear SAP Folks,


In this blog post, I will share how to link purchasing document types & how it control the document types will see detaily. Now we link Purchase requisition document type to Purchase order document type.


Go to transaction code : OLME or

SAP IMG →Materials Management→Purchasing→Purchase Requisition

Next click document type


Now select standard document type and copy create new document type ZNB Domestic PR


Now select ZNB document type and click allowed item categories then select required item categories and delete other item categories.


Now select standard document type and click link purchase requisition


Then Link ZNB Domestic PO document type and delete other document types then save


Now Create ZNB document type Purchase Requisition


Then Create Purchase order with reference to PR and select not assigned PO docment types for example i select standard NB docment type but i assigned ZNB document Now you will get error message if u select assigned document types ZNB you are not getting error.


So It is one way to control purchasing document types without basis support.If we can follow the same way we can control unwanted linked purchasing documents ( for example I created Engg Purchase requisition but its linked Domestic Rawmaterial PO document type PO)

I believe, It will be helpful and will provide sufficient information to the readers

Thanks For Reading. Please share your reviews & feedback…


Thanks & Regards
