Mass Change Aggregated Purchase Order Lines

This procedure is used to aggregate purchase order (PO) lines in 'Purchase Order. Display Lines' (PPS220) and simultaneously change information contained in several purchase order lines in one process.

The aggregated update functionality is accessible through the basic option "Change" in (PPS220/B). In order to update many purchase order lines, an aggregated sorting order is required.

Fields that can be changed this way are:

Project number and project element mean season and delivery window if the Fashion I–switch is enabled and setting '311 Project Management' in 'Company. Connect Division' (MNS100/J) is not selected.

This procedure also enables mass close of PO lines on an aggregated level by using related option 35=Close Order Line in (PPS220/B) on an aggregated PO line.

Limitations

When an update is performed, a batch job is created. The lines are processed one after another, but during this time the lines are locked. When these lines are locked, you cannot validate any of them. If you validate the locked lines, they will receive a failed status. You can see the reason for the failed lines by selecting action F17='Display error log' in (PPS220).

Follow These Steps

To change aggregated PO lines in (PPS220), proceed with these steps:

  1. Start (PPS220/B).

  2. Choose an aggregated sorting view.

  3. Select an aggregated line and use the basic option "Change". (PPS220/E) is opened.

  4. On (PPS220/E) you can define a new value for several different fields. For each field, a check box is available which should be selected to update the corresponding field. You can select the check box and leave the corresponding field blank in order to update the field with a blank value.

  5. Use action F16=Validate to simulate the update.

  6. Information is shown about the number of lines affected and how many of them failed the simulation. Action F17='Display error log' is visible if there are failed order lines, and can be used to access more information about the cause of the failure.

  7. Use action F14=Update to update the PO lines contained in the selected aggregated line. This action can also be used without using action F16=Validate first.

To close aggregated PO lines in (PPS220), proceed with these steps:

  1. Start (PPS220/B).

  2. Choose an aggregated sorting view.

  3. Select an aggregated line and use related option 35=Close Order Line. (PPS220/D) is opened.

  4. Use action F16=Validate to simulate the update.

  5. Information is shown about the number of lines affected and how many of them failed the simulation. Action F17='Display error log' is visible if there are failed order lines, and can be used to access more information about the cause of the failure.

  6. Use action F14=Update to update the PO lines contained in the selected aggregated line. This action can also be used without using action F16=Validate first.
