    Auto Creation of PO from SO

    Rajeev R
      Hi

      We are working on 11.5.10.2 and our requirement is

      1.     User is entering multiple lines (say 20 lines) on Sales Order.
      2.     Upon progressing the line, Purchase Order has to be created for these 20 Lines.
      3.     Is there any way by which the User can create Purchase Order for the items entered on Sales Order without much User Intervention. The user does not want to go through the process of selecting lines from Purchase Requisition and create Purchase Order through the AUTO Create Document functionality in Oracle. OR can be PO creation From PR be automated without having to manually run the AutoCreate Document request .

      We are not using BPA ; is there any solution involving ASL and/or Sourcing Rule which can be used to meet the User requirement.

      Thanks

          There certainly is. It involves using either Blanket Purchase Aggreement (which you don't have) or using Quotes.
          Once you have created either of those, simply create an ASL entry for the item(s), attach the Quote or BPA to the ASL entry; create a sourcing rule.

          Once these setups are done, when a requisition is created and approved, it will get converted into a PO automatically.
          And depending upon the value you enter in the "Release method" field on the ASL screen (and your PO workflow attributes), the PO will be created in incomplete status or it can be automatically submitted for approval.

          Hope this answers your question,
