Procurement Directly from Sales Order and Using Procurement Wizard
Experts,
Client is on SAP 8.81 PL09
I have a client that in certain situations the user directly creates Procurement Documents from the Sales Order using the Procurement Document button in the Logistics Tab. This then link the Sales Order to the Purchase Order.
Now the issue starts when the Customer for the Sales Order would like to add more lines in the Sales Order. In this scenario, to create the PO directly  SAPB1 will try to create a NEW PO for the newly added lines in the Sales Order.
Now since this client has overseas Vendors, they need to have the newly added lines in the Sales Order to be included in the original Purchase Order created: Work around is manually add the new lines in the Sales Order  as additional lines in the original Purchase Order.
Now here is the problem. When the user  try to use the Procurment Wizard, the newly added lines in the Sales Order even though manually added to the original Purchase order already STILL shows up during the Procurement Wizard process and can be accidentally selected creating a new Purchase Order thereby  duplicating  purchase quantity of the items that were already  added in the original Purchase Order.
Does anybody have encountered a similar scenario and might have any work around for this inquiry.
Thank you the comments in advance.
Jose

Hi Jose,
Welcome you post on the forum.
I am afraid the best way to avoid such problem is to recreate sales order and purchase order instead.
Thanks,
Gordon
