Hi ,

The fields 'Validity Start' and 'Validity End' are maintained on header

level of a purchase order.

Since purchase requisitions do not contain header data, these fields

cannot be filled in the Preq.

If you receive some error in transaction 'ME2*N', like 'Please enter

Validity Start/End', the fields 'Validity Start' and 'Validity End' are

maintained as mandatory fields for framework orders in the t-code OMF4

in the section 'Administrative data, header'.

So from standard there is no setting.

You can try using the BADI ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST

For the Framework Purchase requistion you will need to enter account assignment category as K Cost center ( Cost center and profit center ,GL) for the document type used as NB in PR. Make sure that link between the PR to PO document types allowed settings (NB - -> FO).

Validitity start and end date you will only enter in PO not in PR.

In Po document type you have to choose as FO frame work order then you will maintains the Header additional data tab corrosponding Validitity start and end date.

However Framework order PO is not rquired to post the GR. You have to post the IR for the total limited amount.

GR Based IV is deselected in Pos and maintains the tax code. u2022If the Goods receipt flag is set under the u201CDelivery tabu201D then also the u201CGR non-valuatedu201D field needs to be check marked. (GR Posting is not necessaries for the FO order )

We can also create the invoicing plan at the time of PO creation. Based on the invoice plan type and date categories maintains the schedul invoice value and date.

Then, Invoice verification is done through ERS postings t.code MRRL.

Thanks for your repli.

My concern is to automate PO creation through Service Purchase Requisition(Frame work Purchase requisition).

I checked all the above setups and able to bring my Service purchase requisition in ME59N for process.

But it is getting the error message as enter validity start date and fail to create the Frame work PO (Item category D).

Frame work Purchase requisition data:

1. Item category D, Free form text (No MMR), maintained the Material group

2. Maintained the service details.

3. Since it is a service, have not maintained the Info record.

Is anything else needs to checked or added.
