This WIKI will show the full process of a purchase order, including the steps below:

  • Purchase order creation
  • Goods receipt
  • Invoice receipt
  • Credit memo or Cancellation of invoice 

Standard Process Flow

  1. ME21N - Purchase Order Creation
  2. MIGO - Goods Receipt
  3. MIRO - Invoice Receipt
  4. MIRO - Credit Memo (optional)
  5. MR8M - Invoice Cancellation (optional)

ME21N- Purchase Order

    • In invoice tab keep in mind you must check the GR-Bsd IV flag under invoice tab (mandatory flag, except for future delivery scenario). For more information about this flag, take a look at GR-Bsd IV flag issues. If not checked during the PO creation it leads to inconsistencies especially if you need to cancel a subsequent document later.
    • In Brazil tab the Brazilian fields (material usage and material category) are close for edition. 
    • Also in Brazil tab material origin is usually open unless you use split valuation, in this case material origin will be closed for edition. 

MIGO_GR - Goods Receipt

  • Choose Goods Receipt and Purchase Order option.
  • Enter the purchase order number just created using movement type 101.
  • In delivery note field you can enter the vendor NF number. 

MIRO – Invoice Receipt

  • During MIRO you need to enter the field reference with the Nota Fiscal number. 
  • When you enter the Nota Fiscal, you can always check where the taxes are coming from. This is very important for scenarios where the taxes are not as expected. 


MIRO – Credit Memo

  • The reference have to be filled in like showed below in field 'Header Text' in tab 'Details'.
  • Keep in mind, this is one flow, so it is the same purchase order still.


MR8M - Cancellation 

  • If you don´t want to create a credit memo you also have the option to cancel the invoice in MR8M.
