Purpose

This page is to help you to clarify and resolve the problems that  Held / Saved PO was Created automatically from SC.

Overview

In this page you will get the debugging hints and possible solutions.

What is The Problem

Symptom 1

The PO was created from shopping cart with catalog with or without flag “order as direct material”. The PO was created in saved status and item price might be zero or catalog value.

Symptom 2

The Purchase Order created automatically on creation of Shopping cart from catalog items, goes into Saved status instead of Ordered.

Symptom 3

The PO was created from a shopping cart from a catalog with contract. The purchase order is created but remains in "Saved" status and does not get ordered.

In most of the cases, when you order the PO again created in the above symptoms, without changing anything, the PO could be ordered and then replicated to ECC correctly.

 

 

Analysis and Debug Tips

To understand which error is issued in the PO creation stage:

  1. Prepare a SC in Held status
  2. Set Breakpoint of at FM BBP_PD_MSG_ADD
  3. Transfer the SC with BBP_SC_TRANSFER

When the breakpoint is reached, go back a little bit in the “call stack”, you will understand how and which error is issued.

In 90% of the problem, the error is LBBP_PDIGPF0B because P_ITMIGP-PRICE 0.00

BBP_PD 445        Enter the price or deselect the 'Invoice Expected' indicator

BBP_PD 446        Enter the price for the service item

The cause is that   CS_NEW_ITMIGP-PRICE = 0.00 is returned from pricing in code below:
