Weird message: ME022 vendor blocked

Former Member

Dear MM consultants & users,

I'm trying to create a PO to this vendor but keep on getting error message ME022 "vendor blocked". FYI, this vendor is not blocked for ant Purchasing Organization (checked in XK05).

Is there any method other than XK05 to block/unblock vendor?

Can we block vendor by Account Group?

FYI, the vendor code is 99000418. If I try block this vendor, error message will appear like this "vendor 99000418" blocked". But this error message shows no vendor code - "vendor blocked".

Please assist. Thank you.

Dear Natahion,

Please check with XK04 or MK04> it may show you what "Block function" that you might have run.

already done it, the vendor is all clear of any blocks. i think it has to do with acct group becoa it seems that new vendor of the same acct group is defaulted to be blocked from PO issuance (but RFQ not blocked).

Hi,

I suppose you have set purchasing block 

Centrally imposed purchasing block (all purchaising organization)

on MK05.

Then when you create the Po you will have 

Message no. ME022

Main Program     SAPFMMEX

Source code of   FMMEXE01_LFA1-STATUS-NEU

form LFA1-STATUS-NEU

...

  IF lfs_lfa1-sperm NE space.

    MESSAGE e022 WITH lfs_lfa1-lifnr.

  ENDIF.

...

Hi,

Can you double check the error code? I have looked in my system and the description for this error is a different one.

Nope. I even create a new vendor with the same account group, still could not create PO. But I can create RFQ for these vendors.

Check what is maintained for "Block function" in XK05 for the Vendor,

The vendor is not blocked for any function in XK05. Even a new vendor created with the same account group will not be allowed a PO to be created for.

Then check the settings for the Account Group in OBD3
