Let's get started.

Step 2: Navigate to the Purchase Order creation screen. The T-code of PURCHASE ORDER creation is ME21N.
There are two ways to navigate to the PO creation screen. The simplest way is to enter the t-code (ME21N) in the search bar.
Or, you can also go to the purchase order creation outline agreement creation screen by following the below path.
