       Select “Is line supervisor of Organization unit”

       Go to  Function tab of the newly created org unit

       Clcik on  “Purch Organization” and select the Purchasing Org and select R/3 system from the drop down .

       Once Purchasing Org is maintained we need to maintain purchasing group, The procedure is same create a new Org unit and go to Function tab and now Purhchasing group is active

       Now click on Purchasing group and assign the purchasing group and the R/3 System

       Once this is done then purchasing org and group is maintained.

       Once the purchasing group is maintained we need to maintain Responsibility tab as well. This is where the link between  Purchasing Org and Purchasing group  we are creating
