Hello.

When I start enter data for a PO with;

Header Data = Company Code 0100

Item Data = Plant 0200

And then SAVE the PO, the system replaces Company Code 0100 with 0200. If possible avoid this?

I appreciate your help.

Hector.

Thanks for your quick response.

Plant 0100 belongs to Company Code 0100.

Plant 0200 belongs to Company Code 0200.

Both Plants belong to same Purchasing Organization.

Thank you.

why would you use company code 0100 in a purchase order header while all items belong to a different company code?

It's a cross company transaction.

For Goods Receipt, the accounting takes place in plant 0200.

For Invoice Receipt, the accounting takes places in 0100, and 0200.

That's why I need Company Code for 0100 and plant 0200.

your expectation does not meet SAP reality.

can you explain the process in more detail.

why do you need accounting in 0100 and 0200 while the goods are going to 0200 only?

My client creates vendors in company code 0100, and not in 0200.

Company Code 0200 is a new company, but 0100 will pay the invoices.

There is a Interoffice Account in both company, and when you enter the invoices the system automatically applies corresponding debits and credits for both companies.

the plant field in your PO item will take care about your financial postings,

The company code at header level plays only a minor role.

from OSS note 508370.

The company code field on the header level is just used to determine the local currency and the conversion rate to the document currency.

For all other kind of check and evaluation, we use the company code on item level (determined via the plant assignment)

Usually the company code on header level is derived from the purchase organisation unless we deal with central purchase organisations without related company code. In this case the user has to enter a company code.

For that reason, the only check regarding the field company code onheader level is against the purchase organisation (purchase organisation assigned to this company code.).
