i want to create a PO for my services, who's agreement finish after certain time limit (lets say for 1 year). for that PO i want to generate invoice as many as i want in 1 year of time limit.
i got to know that this thing will be done through purchase agreement. but i'm unable to release order against that purchase agreement.
kindly help me with this scenario, step by step.
thanks in advance.
Very good question. Thankfully, you should be able to still create a release order even with the button greyed out. With value commitments, we don't add the individual lines at the time that a release order is generated (for an explanation of why, you can ask me and I'll write a post explaining the logic). On a product value comittment, you are creating an empty purchase header where you are filling in the lines to connect it back to the purchase agreement as the new release order form acts a little differently with value commitment lines. To put it more eloquently, see this quote by Microsoft:
"Only commitments of the Product quantity commitment type are available in the Create a new release order form. To create a purchase release order from commitments of the Product value commitment type, you must first create a purchase order, and then you can add purchase order lines for these items."
So, what do you do? Remember that a release order is just a purchase order created against a purchasing agreement.
1. Create your Purchase Order the Standard Way (Procurement and Sourcing --> Area Page --> Common --> All Purchase Orders and click the "Purchase Order" button in the New tab of the action pane menu)
2. Make sure that the vendor in our purchase order matches the vendor in the purchase agreement. And then, under the general tab, click the General --> and fill-in or select the data for the Purchase agreement ID. That converts the Purchase Order to a release order.
Once that is done and you have created the purchase order (aka release order since you added the reference to the purchase agreement id), you then need to open up the purchase agreement. Switch to Line View. And begin adding lines. Add your lines first for the purchase order. Then click the Update Line option and Choose "Create Link" to link those individual lines to the purchase agreement. And see the screenshot for the finish.
Now, go enjoy your life. You made your client happy. :)

Can't create release orders? Is the Purchase agreement status 'Effective' (it's "on hold" by default)?
What setting are you using for the 'Default commitment"?
yes, i can not release order. although status is effective.
and i have used product value commitment.
whenever i release order, it doesn't show any line(item/service) while releasing it.
You enter a quantity on the create release order form?
i'm unable to enter quantity as i have selected value commitment
Hi Zeeshan, in your screenshot the New > Release order button should be active. In my system, the only thing that activates/deactivates that button is the status on the agreement header.
Is it your security profile?
Hello Tim, sometimes it activate and some times it doesn't, although i have changed the status into effective.
and i have all security rights.
thank you Brandon for your response.
but with this solution i have to create multiple POs, as i was avoiding to create multiple POs.
here is my scenario, i have a vendor who offers me some services of maintenance. this services offered by the vendor whole year.
in this case i wanted to open 1 PO and create multiple invoice against that PO and that PO only take place on the basis of effective date which will be 1 year or amount.
i hope i explained you properly.
Awww... I see Zeeshan.. Right now, time is tight and I am unable to make screenshots today. However, if these instructions, don't work, let me know, and I'll make a walkthrough post on how to do it.
To answer your question:
1st: You wanted an effective date and an expiration date or amount. In order to do this, you still need to create a purchase agreement as above and a release order (since this is just a purchase order).
2nd: Using the method above, you can begin adding lines to the purchase order
****Now, here is what is important: just because you want to post invoices against a purchase order, does not mean that the purchase order has to be closed. You need to do what is known as posting a partial invoice.****
Posting a partial invoice will leave the Purchase Order open. The purchase order will stay open for the duration of the purchase agreement or until the final amount of product is attained. The step to be careful of is to make sure that the invoice remainder quantity within the purchase order is above zero.
After creating your release order, this is very similar (not exact) to what you will need to do. Remember that the key is to make sure that purchase order line has a quantity that has not been met by the invoice. Let me know if you need me to do a walkthrough with screenshots.

You can enter and save information for vendor invoices, and you can match invoice lines to product receipt lines. You can also match partial quantities for a line, if you have to.
You can create a vendor invoice based on the product receipt line items that have been received to date, even if all the items for a particular purchase order have not yet been received. You might do this, for example, if a vendor sends one invoice per month that covers all of the deliveries that the vendor ships during that month. Each product receipt represents a partial or complete delivery of the items on the purchase order.
When you post the invoice, the Invoice remainder quantity for each item is updated with the total of the received quantities from the selected product receipts. If both the Invoice remainder quantity and the Deliver remainder quantity for all items on the purchase order are zero, the status of the purchase order changes to Invoiced. If the Invoice remainder quantity is not zero, the status of the purchase order is unchanged and additional invoices can be entered for it.
This procedure assumes that at least one product receipt has been posted for the purchase order. The vendor invoice is based on these product receipts and reflects the quantities from them. The financial information for the invoice is based on the information that is entered when you post the invoice.
Click Accounts payable > Common > Vendor invoices > Open vendor invoices.
On the Action Pane, click Invoice > Vendor invoice. The Vendor invoice form opens.
In the Default quantity for lines field, select the type of quantity to update.
Enter or select an invoice account. This is the account for the vendor that sent the invoice.
Enter the invoice number.
On the Action Pane, click Retrieve product receipts.
In the Select product receipt form, select one or more product receipts or product receipt lines, and then click OK. Information about the product receipts is displayed in the Vendor invoice form.
On the Action Pane, click Match product receipts. Alternatively, in the Lines grid, click Invoice line > Match product receipts.
In the Match product receipts to invoice form, select the Match check box for the product receipts to match with the invoice line items. Alternatively, you can click Select all lines or Select all product receipts to match all product receipts to the invoice.
Optional: To match a partial quantity, enter a quantity in the Product receipt quantity to match field.
Click OK to close the Match product receipts to invoice form and return to the Vendor invoice form.
To save the invoice without posting it, select the On hold check box on the Vendor invoice header FastTab.
To post the invoice and close the form, on the Action Pane, click Post, and then click Post in the form that is displayed.
Close the form.
