          Hi,

          Could not understand your question.
          Do you want to default the source document (Global BPA/ Quotation) while creating Standard PO ?
          If so, Please review the note Vision Demo - How To Automatically Source Backing Documents to Requisitions and Purchase Orders (Doc ID 1102873.1)

          If not, please elobrate your requirement.

          Thanks,

            thank you for the reply subhashini. i have gone through the documents and they are very helpfull to me.

            bu here my client requirement is that.. for back to back and drop ship sales orders, requision and spo should be created automatically, there should not be any intervention of manual process. here my client is not using any quote process. i could set up automatic sourcing through the ASL atribute form for bpa and i have idea on cpa and quote. based on the list price requision and spo should be created to full fill the back to back and drop ship orders. whether this function is available in standard or shall i go for customization?

            if we can set up in standard your help is very much appreciated.

            thanks

                Hi,

                In order to create a Standard PO from requisition automatically, Requisition should be sourced to Contract Purchase agreement / Quotation / Global BPA.
                Please create ASL, Sourcing Rule and Assign the sourcing rule in Assignment Set.
                Also Set the Profile option "PO: Automatic Document Sourcing"

                Refer the note
                Automatically Create PO's from Drop Ship Requisition (Doc ID 835412.1)
                How to Create an Automatic Standard Purchase order for an Approved Purchase Requisition Sourced to a Contract Purchase Agreement (CPA) (Doc ID 334601.1)

                Thanks,

                  Dear

                  Under standard condition, you will have to tie your Requisition to a Quote or CPA for the SPOs. In case, the same is not in scope, then get the data from Requiisition to be populated to interface table and from there use PDOI for the PO release. We have standard interface for the same, which can be easily serached on metalink. Hope this helps.
