We are working on direct procurement - ECS Scenario.We created a shopping cart for a backend material(ECC material) and selected the "Order as Direct Material" tab. We also created a PO with reference to this SC. The PO gets ordered and then there is an error on the document flow saying "Purchase Order XXXXXXXXX/X Error in Process" and the PO is not getting transfered to the backend.
I checked the document in BBP_PD and these are the messages :
HEADER I1015 Awaiting Approval X
HEADER I1021 Created
HEADER I1038 Complete
HEADER I1043 Ordered
HEADER I1080 In Transfer to Execution Syst. X
HEADER I1081 In Transfer to Planning Syst. X
HEADER I1132 Transfer Failed (E.Sys.)
HEADER I1180 Document Completed
When I checked the same in RZ20, the error message was "<i>For material XXXX, Account assignment not maintained</i>"
Why should I maintain an account assignment for a direct material procurement?
