PO must restrict for back dates

Updated May 18, 2018

Hi experts,

We have a requirement.

1)  PO creation for back dates ( past dates) must not allow.

2) If necessary to create PO for past dates then control option has to be given to get for last 1 week or 10 days as we give option to make for user exit.

PLEASE revert back ASAP

if there are standard options to do the same.


if it must be done through Z transactions only, then pls give process flow.

    To restrict the user to create PO in the past date...

    Go to SPRO > material management > purchasing > Environment data > Define attributes of system messages > system messages

    Here maintain version 00
    application area 06
    message no 028
    maintain cat as "E"(Error)
    then Save.

    If it is necessary to create PO for past dates This is not possible through standard configuration. For this purpose use PO BAdi "ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST", in this use Interface "PROCESS_HEADER" and you can also take ABAPer's help to write the code.
