While doing 3rd party sales the system picks up the vendor automatically from the source list with the assignments of material and vendor data at T.code ME01, and also you need to maintain the info records for the material and vendor at ME11.

Try this, it will help you.

As you already know, while create 3rd party Sales Order, system automatically created Purchase Requisition.

Now as far as creating Purchase Order is concerned, you can created it manually or automatically. This will be as per your client's decision (& Requirement), if you create PO manually, then you will also have to enter Vendor manually. If you decide to create PO Automatically system will pick Vendor automatically based on Source determination settings in MM module.

Hope this helps,

Picking the vendor is part of a standard process of source determination in MM; there are a few options, I suggest that you look it up in the documentation.
