Purchase Requisition Release Value of Characteristics blanc

Post by nick68 » Wed Oct 21, 2015 10:50 pm

Hello,

We have a purchase requisition release with 4 characteristics in place, release is on item level. The characteristics are: Plant, Purchasing Group, Account Category and Cost Centre. The release works fine if all characteristics are matching the the purchase requisition. I know that the characteristics must have an entry otherwise the release is not working. But I need for several strategies a characteristic "blanc" e.g. cost centre, is there any solution for this?

Thank you for your help
Nick

Hi,

It is unfortunate that the release strategy functionality requires the full matching of all assigned release characteristic values and therefore, if you are using the cost centre as part of your release procedure, you have to make sure all possible cost centre values shall be assigned to related release strategy in CL20N transaction.

Cheers,
HT

Hi nick,

you have to create a value "blanc" with a description for your characteristic, which you can select in your strategy, then it will work.
Don't say "NO" if you don't know

Hello,

tnx for the answers, to create a value "blanc" will be not working, because of Cost Center and Customer policy.
Customer Exit M06B0002 could be a solution, do you have experience with this exit?

Again I just like to leave a characteristic "blanc" for some release strategies, e.g. Strategy A1 based on Material group, Strategy A2 does not based on Material group.

Hi Nick,
you don*t have to create a Cost Center "blanc."
Only in the characteristic you define a value "blanc" and add a description for it. Noone in Financials will take notice of that.
Don't say "NO" if you don't know

Hi,
our solution has been: In structure CLDAR, field DAR_UNB allows the release strategy to use empty characteristics and then include this in the above user exit.
Issue is closed, thanks for the answers.
