RFQ process Coll. no. automation.

In purchasing, you try to find the best offer for goods or services that you require. To do so, you send a purchase invitation to a number of vendors to indicate their terms and conditions, such as price or delivery date for the supply of materials or provision of service, by submitting a quotation.

In this purchase quotation, the material or service details, for example, quantity, required date and vendor information, are specified. You compare the quotations received and determine the vendor that you want to order from.

These purchase quotation created in the system are tracked under a single key number for mixing and tracking. This number is called Coll. No. In the SAP standard, users must manually enter these Coll. No. It is described how to automatically determine Coll. No. by following the method below.


  1. A new number range must be defined. A new number range is defined from the SNRO transaction code.

  1. The MM06EO0M_MODIFY_SCREEN program is ENDENHANCEMENT as follows.

The code block is as follows;

DATA : lv_banfn like eket-banfn.

  CASE screen-name.
      IF sy-tcode = 'ME41'.
              nr_range_nr = '01'
              object      = 'ZMM_N_****'
              quantity    = '1'
              number      = EKKO-SUBMI.


After performing the above steps, when a new purchase quotation document is created on the ME41 screen, the system will determine the next number and fill it on the screen.
