Fixed vendor in source list not recognized by MRP

Former Member

Hi

I have a source list (ME01) with a listed info record for a particular plant/purch.orgvendor/material combo.

I have ticked the fixed vendor tick and flagged it as MRP relevant (MRP=1).

When I run the MRP the purchase requisition is created but the vendor field in the purchase requistion is empty. Somehow the MRP does not recognize the source list settings. No fixed vendor is allocated to the purchase requisition.

Validity period of source list is checked.

I have checked the User exit LMEQR001, but nothing is implemented.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Lars

the fixed vendor indicator in the source list is not consideredfrom MRP run, only the MRP indicator is considered, and here you must only have one source with this MRP indicator.

Thanks, those IMG settings are already made in our system.

Jurgen:

Thanks for your reply, but we only have one source (an info record) for this source list.

The MRP indicator is set to 1 so I guess that should make it relevant for MRP.

Any more suggestions?

Hello Lars,

Are you using quota arrangements or scheduling agreements. If so then this will take priority during vendopr determination while PR creation.

Are you using SAP APO?

The system searches in following order;

:Quota arrangement

: Scheduling agreement

:Source List

:Info records.

Br,

Hello Lars,

Please check the following settings in cutomization;

SPRO>>Materials Management>>Purchasing>>Environment Data>>Define Default Values for Buyers.

Select : Double Click: Settings for Default Values.

Now select the group and go to Source determination Tab.

In tab under pre-setting of automatic source dtermination indicator.

Tick the check boxes Create purchase requistion and create purchase order vendor unknown.

Note: In ME01, if your vendor is external then you have maiantain thye vendor in vendor fileld. If vendor is internal (say plant to plant transfer) then vendor needs to be maintained under ppl field.
