Hi,

I have a basic question.

I have a requirement to check the material master to determine the existence of the material master after a PR is created. Can we create a PR without a material.

What are the methods of creating PR apart from manual creation

Thanks.

Hi,

If material master doesn't exist, how can you enter the material number in PR? System will give error message if the corrosponding material master doesn't exist.

Alternatively, You can enter material description & material group & other entries in the PR.

Hi,

If you enter a material master number in the PR it will check to see if that exists for the Plant.

The normal method is for the user to use the search functions to llok for existing materials and ONLY if they cannot find one should they enter the descrition instead.

Hi,

You can definitely create a PR without material master. Also you can define some PR types where the material master is a mandatory field. Following are the types of PRs other than Manually Generated PR -

NB - MRP Generated PR.

Sale Order Generated PR

Project Generated PR

Hi,

yes you can create a P req without referenc to a material (but not for a stock procurement). But you cannot then convert that to a PO and specify the material number, this would not link the P req to the PO.

PRs can be created automatically via MRP, Plant Maintenance, Sales orders and (I think Projects)

Hi,

The methods of creating PR apart from manual creation:

1. Custom Program using BDC/BAPI

2. With LSMW Tool (Direct Input, Batch Input, BAPI, IDOC)

3. ALE (Application Link Enabling)

<b>You would need to implement a proper BAdi/Enhancement to check if the material exists and raise an error message if it does not.</b>
