I can generate PR for external services from Maintenance Order but unable to generate PR for Non-stock Material.

Hi ,

If you want services from maintenance order .Then create the maintenance order by IW31 (Suppose if you are using Plant maintenance - PM).

then PM order will be created .From PM order we can get the PR and from PR you can create PO .

In PO and PR  , item category will be D and Account assignment as F .

If you are not using PM ,then  mistake has done  in MM configurations

me013 message is only send if one of both values ( document types/categories ) is blank, or if the combination is missing in table T161.

do you have document type NB for Purchase requisition

NB is called in PR created from Maint order, from the configuration PM > functions and setting for order type> general data > define account assignment category and document type for PR

Check in the below SPRO path for allowing account assignment and against your PR doc type..

Plant Maintenance and Customer Service/Maintenance and Service Processing/Maintenance and Service Orders/General Data/Define Account Assignment Cat. and Document Type for Purchase Requisitions

Are you sure you have Purchase Requisition type NB setup in customizing?

This message basically says that the document type NB does not exist in documents type configuration.

Please check the config in the same client where you are doing this PR creation.

Here is the full text of the message:

Document type NB not allowed with doc. category B (Please check input)

Message no. ME013

Diagnosis

The document type NB you entered is not allowed in combination with the document category B.

The combination of document type and document category entered cannot be used because it has not been defined in Customizing for Purchasing.

The following (internal) document categories exist:

  • B - purchase requisition
  • F - purchase order (PO)
  • K - contract
  • L - scheduling agreement
  • A - request for quotation (RFQ)

Example

You cannot create a PO (document category F) with the document type scheduling agreement with release documentation (LPA).

Procedure

Check your input.

If the problem cannot be resolved in this way, contact your system administrator.

The document types/categories may be maintained or displayed by authorized persons in Customizing.

Kindly guide me what configuration settings in MM are required.

Nothing - standard settings should work fine.

Which PR type is used is selected from the config:

SPRO> PM> Maintenance and Service Processing> Maintenance and Service Orders> General Data> Define Account Assignment Cat. and Document Type for Purchase Requisitions

By default this is NB.

The error message you state is very clear that PR doc type NB does not exist. But you say that manually you can create a NB PR.

How are you trying to create the PR from PM order?

Is there any enhancement done to change the doc type from PM order?

But your error seems that is exactly i have mentioned.

Can you check one test..

Please create one PR manually without reference any Maintenance Order

Non Stock material is not a problem for PR. Just account assignment will exists in PO for non stock material.

Please test the same and revert back with error messages

Dear Dev,

Then must be something wrong in your maintenance order.

Can you check your maintenance order..
