I created a 3rd party purchase requisition from a 'TAS' sales order item. My purchasing item catagory is 'S' and the account assignment is 'X'. I also have created a schedule agreement with the same item catagory and account assignment settings. The schedule agreement and fixed vendor are referenced in the purchase requisition, however when i go to ME38 and try to create a delivery schedule with reference to the purchase req, i get error message 06251 "Requisition ########, item #####, assigned to other order account"

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I'm not sure what the other order account could be.

I know a delivery schedule applies to SA. I have a SA and i'm trying to create the delivery schedule for the SA by referencing an open purchase requisition. However, when i'm in ME38 and choose the option from the menu to create schedule line from a referenced purchase req, it gives me the error 06251.

when you created the scheduling agreement, you had to enter item catergory S and accounting category C, then yopu had to specify a sales order number with its item and schedule line.

I guess that your requisition has just a different combination for sales order number with its item and schedule line than you specified in ME31L

Thank you for your reply... i rewarded a few points because i feel your answer is pointing me in the right direction, but i still have a problem.

my sales order number and item changes each time the customer re-orders. Therefore, I'm not sure what to enter in ME31L as the sales order number. The purchase requisition will always reference a specific sales order, but there is only one Schedule Agreement for all the sales orders. So my question is... "Can i use a single schedule agreement or would i have to create a new schedule agreement for each sales order created?"

why do you need a schedule agreement at all?

Why dont you just create an individual purchase order, maybe with reference to a contract.

I'm using a schedule agreement with reference to a contract, because this is the same type of purchasing document that our other business areas use and I would like to remain consistent with our processes to prevent confussion. Also, we use EDI message output and I've already got a map translation for a DELFOR (forecast schedule). I would have to develope another EDI map for a ORDERS (standard purchase order).

I changed the Sales Order Number and Item in ME32L to what was on the purchase requisition and that fixed the error message! The only thing now is if there is a way to keep me from having to change the Sales Order number and Item in ME32L each time a new sales order is issued. If you have any ideas please reply... Thank you for your help. I'll give you full credit for answering my question.

delivery schedule you can create for SA not for Purchase requisition.
