You can capture the additional information in the PO header level attachments as well
Navigate to Setup -> Attachments and setup the attachment templates based on the list you have mentioned.
While creating the PO, click on the attachment icon in the toolbar and click on the "Document Catalog" button and search for Usage "Template". This will show you the attachment templates those you have created in the previous step.
Select the template and attach it to PO.
We use context DFF where context value is a variable set by form personaliztion.
We assign a value depending on document type.
In this way we have different segments of DFF on each purchase document type (standard, blanket, contract).
I think this solution will work in your scenario too.
your solution does makes sense, but can u plz elaborate how you differentiated different types of PO? which fields you used to Personalize the CONTEXT value of the PO Header DFF? A little guidance with example or some screen-shots would be appreciated. You may send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you explain me that How you identify the different nature of PO on PO screen ? which field is populated for the same ?
Currently, we have created different "Context Values" for each different type of PO. The users selects the Conext value and enters the relevant info.
On DFF definition form set global variable as a Reference Field eg. global.XX_DOCTYPE.
Set Context field values set BLANKET, STANDARD, CONTRACT, PLANNED etc.
Then on you can set global.XX_DOCTYPE values using form personalization, eg:
Object type: Global Variable
Target Object: XX_DOCTYPE
Property Name: VALUE
This solution is very flexible. We use different context for combinations of Operating Unit and Document Type.
To set values of global.MY_VARIABLE we make concatenation of profile option ORG_ID value and document type value.
I believe this will work in your scenario.
