Former Member

can anyone please tell me what all fields are picked up in a Purchase Requisition(PR) in the scenario of automatic creation of PR after MRP run.

If we are using more than 1 PR type in the system how is it determined during the MRP run that the PR will be created for which type.I understand that source list will have to be created and maintained but how is the PR type determined

Thanks in advance

In PR the system checks for the material and vendor. See the steps below.

Step1:Auto PO tick in material master Purchasing view (mandatory)

Step2:Auto PO tick in vendor master Purchasing view

Step3:Maintain Source list for vendor and material (If u r not using source list for auto PO creation, the assign the Source of supply to a PR in ME56)

Step4:Maintain Pur. Inforecord

Step5:ME59n : execute for PR and Vendor In ME59n, you can also select the PR document type. If you want to select different document types, go for multiple entries and enter the doc types.

When u execute, the system will give the appropriate PRs. Select the required and convert to PO.

But through MRP you cannot create PO directly only Planned orders can be created.

Hi Vinayak,

You can configure PR type and MRP group combination in PP config. Use this MRP group in material master.

Then that particular PR type will be generated through MRP

Hope this resolves ur issue

If i want to pull out a specific field from Vendor master so that it gets populated in PR, is it possible?

I am actually trying to input a particular no. in the vendor master and then pull it through PR.

So I want to find what fields are sent in MRP run and then find if those field are blank in my clients vendor master. I will then populate that number in that blank field and pull it across.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.
