Welcome to the Confirmation WIKI page. Here you will find all general information relating to Confirmations of Materials and Services / Limits.
I will also update this page with any new information, new issues, FAQ's, important notes and KBA's.


Confirmations are always created with reference to a Purchase Order with open items.
In creation, users indicate quantity or information about service / limit received.
Confirmations created in SRM will be transferred (except in standalone scenario) to Backend / ERP. Confirmation with material items will be transferred by IDOC and services items by RFC.
Confirmations can be canceled /deleted or returned.
