Hi,

System is allowing to create Purchase Orders with reference to an
Outline Agreement (contract) whose validity has been expired.

Error message no. 06041 -' Validity period of contract expired on xxx
is set as Error message in configuration.

Reproduction steps -

1) ME31K - Create an Contract with validity period as 01.4.2012 to

31.12.2012

2) ME32K - Change the contract validity period from 31.12.2012 to

15.04.2012 and save.

3) ME21N -  Create the PO with reference to contract  on

today’s date i.e. with date 17.04.2012.

Some times system is not showing the error message and allowing

creating the PO. System should show error message as the PO creation

date is out of validity of the contract.

Regards,
Sachin

review what you wrote at 2)

this does not make any sense as the start date is higher than the end date

Hi Jurgen

Thanks for your reply

Point 2 is

2) ME32K - Change the contract validity period from 01.04.2012 to 15.04.2012 and save.

Earlier contract end date was 31.12.2012 now it is changed to 15.04.2012.

And in case of PO with reference to contract which transaction should be used.

user is creating PO using transaction ME21N. and putting the contract no directly in to reference  field  KONNR ( Number of Principal Purchase Agreement)

is this correct.

Best Regards,

Sachin
