Moving average price for service items in third party scenario

Dear Experts ,

In my scenario , we are procuring installation and warranty for a instrument item from a third party vendor. I have maintained everything else to trigger a PR and then a PO. PIR has been maintained with all the relevant prices for that material in PIR . The issue is , when the MAP has a value for the services items it generates a PR without any issue, whereelse, if I make the MAP as 0, the purchase req creation is stopped . I got to know when I tried to create the contract manually to see what prevents the creation of PR. While I tried that the screen asks for valuation price . Now that , we don't need MAP for a service item ( install and warranty) , why is the system blocking creation of PR inspite of all the necessary settings. How can I avoid it . Please help me out here.

Thanks

Sri

    Thanks Jurgen. We are on ECC and the new GUI for SDN was so confusing compared to the old one. I will keep in mind next time . Since I see that you retagged my posy , is there anything I have to do now.

    Can it be that you made the valuation price mandatory in the PR field selection customizing?

    • are you really not able to find this entry in the IMG? It is logically structured and has also a binocular icon to search.

      This is about MM, so the path starts with Materials Management. Purchase Requisitions belong to purchasing, has purchase already in the name, so the next part of the path is Purchasing, followed by requisition and then you have only a few tasks to choose from

      IMG > Materials Management > Purchasing > Purchase Requisition > Define Screen Layout at Document Level

      This is the living room of a MM consultant - he should know 95 % of all IMG tasks in his area from memory.

    Thanks. I just wanted to make sure if I understood correctly what you are referring to . I checked the settings and the price is mandatory for third party PR. Since we are not using SAP service orders and instead a regular third party config for services and instruments, I can't disable the checkbox as it might impact the existing process, where some of the SF goods which are still treated as a third party scenario might get impacted . Is there a way this could be addressed using any standard UE?

    Thanks!
