ReadSoft: Clarifying Configuration Options for PO Item Determination in T-code /cockpit/c25

3014506

Question / Problem: 

There are several configuration parameters in t-code /cockpit/c25 to allow customization of PO item determination in Process Director for AP. Most of these parameters are straightforward e.g. "Check material number" and "Check purchase order unit". However, there are two configuration options that are not so clear: "Check effective val." and "Check value to be invoiced". What fields are considered for the PO item determination process when these two configuration options are selected?

Answer / Solution: 

To explain what fields are considered when these options are selected, we must examine the standard SAP purchasing document item table EKPO.

Simply put, the "Value to be invoiced" parameter will check the EKPO-NETWR field and the "Check Effective val." parameter will check the EKPO-EFFWR field. Here is an example using a few example EKPO table entries:

If a PO 4500018114 is transferred in with an amount of 1680 for an invoice item and you have checked 'Value to be invoiced', the system will assign line 20 of PO 4500018114 to the Process Director item line.

If a PO 4500018114 is transferred in with an amount of 39202 for an invoice item and you have checked 'Check Effective val.’, the system will assign line 30 of PO 4500018114 to the Process Director item line.
