Hi gurus!

I would like to do a subcontracting rework part in a project. I entered a purchasing
info record with a material master in a PS external processing operation. The system
returns the message CP561 “Enter info record without material”. What can I do
about it? There is a solution?

what i assuming based on your issue in project : Subcontracting process

Create subcon PR

Create Subcon PO

Create challan for sending material outside for subcontracting with specific movement type with A/C assignment Q

Once subcon process is done

Make GRN wrt subcon PO

Reconciliation challan

Error you are getting CP561 “Enter info record without material" although you said you have created info record in Me11 with material, so system giving error just anti,

if thing is not clear then let me know what your process for subcontracting?

In your case, you are intended to to procure service or an activity and not material. Since you are entered material as well as info record and hence giving an error.

Please note that external activities are not intended for procurement tangible material which does have material master data set up in the system.

Please do not enter a material and input only. Info record which has category 0 (normal) or 3 (subcontracting). Check with your MM consultant on this issue.
