Issue while converting SC into PO for Order as direct material

Former Member

  Hi All,

We are using SRM 7.13 and in case when requestor creates a SC with non-stock material and mark an Item as Order as Direct material then in shopping cart there is no error message but when the SC is converted into the PO then system validates it and shows an error message " Account assignment is required for the item 1" .

Have anyone of you come across this issue, I know we can implement the DOC_CHECK BADI for it. Does anyone know a SAP NOTE which can be used to resolve this issue. Like the validation should happen at the time of creating SC and not in PO.

Please provide your help !

Hello Ankur,

Account assignment is used only for the materials which are directly going to be consumed and you don't track the stock of those materials. This is indirect procurement.

Direct procurement materials will always be in inventory/stock and thus you don't have account assignment tab.

I believe the error might be on your backend system. Check the PO type that SRM is trying to create, as the backend might have configured that particular PO type to always have account assignment.
