Contract not checked when creating a PR

How can I prevent SAP to create (save) a P/REQ (referencing to a contract) when either the value or quantity on a contract is exceeded.

The behaviour you are experiencing with requisitions is standard.  There is no configurations for

checking the Requisition. When requisition is created with reference to a contract there is no

check against the open quantity of the contract.  It is not possible here.

For the PR, the document design in SAP purchase is that a PR represents
a current request for ordering material, and only the PO is valid for a
material movement. So quantity checks regarding exceeding target value
are only made against POs. PRs may also be partly delivered with by
sources. Which means setting up a message like 06078 as of purchase
order is not possible in purchase requisition.

I hope this helps to clarify the reason for this behaviour.

I hope by setting the above messages as error. System will prevent creating PO documents only not PR.

PR is an internal document and also for contracts as per Std.SAP we will create release orders only.

Please try by creating PO.

Thanks & Regards,
