System allowing creation PO's with vendors that are not assigned to the company code.

A user was trying to create a PO under Company Code 2000 and selected a vendor assigned to Company Code 1000.

This should throw up an error , however the system allowed the USER to assign the vendor to  the PO. ( I also confirmed that the vendor was not assigned to Company Code 2000 ).

I am hoping to get some inputs from experts here on this one.

Many Thanks,

Hello Sanjeet,

in SRM, there is no link between vendors and company codes: vendors are only linked to purchasing organization.

You need a custom development to cover your request.

Thanks Laurent,

Yes you are right. I just discovered that the Purchase Organisation for indirect procurement is Centralized ( not company code or plant specific) and hence the system allows the use of vendors irrespective of the company code they belong to.
