Subcontracting without material number change

Former Member

Hi !

We send material A out and want to receive it back again as material A. Apparently SAP allows this.

On the PO when I enter material xxxx as the component system gives the message: "Attention recursiveness. Material xxxx is the same as the order material".

The process seems to work fine however.

Has anyone dealt with this requirement? Are there any pitfalls I need to be concerned about before I propose this appraoch to the business?

It says Attention, which is usally only a warning.

i have subcontracts where header material and component is the same.

I dont like it that way, but business doesn't want it with different material numbers.

How do we pay the vendor in this case. Does this have to a seperate line item on the PO with the service charges for the vendor ?

Also: Does this work with the Standard pricing scenario ?

Just want to know since I may a similiar requirement coming soon from my business to me.

Thanks in advance.
