    PO numbering

    608027
      I have 2 requirements regarding PO numbers:
      a)In one OU, the client requires PO numbers more than 20 characters. 20Bytes is the limit of that field in the database. Any idea how to go about this?
      b)In another OU, all Goods PO are manually numbered, and also Service POs numbered automatically. How can I achieve this?


      thanks

          Hi,
          Your question :

          a)In one OU (say OU-1), the client requires PO numbers more than 20 characters. 20Bytes is the limit of that field in the database. Any idea how to go about this?

          Ans :_ Please use Purchasing Super User Resp -----> Setup --> Organizations -->Purchasing Options (go to numbering Tab)
          In PO Number field mention Entry : Automatic, Type : Alphanumeric, Next Number : 60000000000000000000 (20 Characters)


          b)In another OU (say OU-2), all Goods PO are manually numbered, and also Service POs numbered automatically. How can I achieve this?

          Ans :_ I don't think this is possible.. In 1 OU you can have either Manual numbering or Automatic numbering of POs.

          Hope this will help :).

            But the PO number is entered manually(Qs 1). So, how do I proceed?

                PO numbering setup can be either auto or manual it cant be either of them.
