Frieght Vendor mandatory and without a default value in ME21N

Hi Friends,

How can I set Frieght Vendor mandatory and without a default value whan I create a PO in ME21N?

Actually when I create a new Purchase Order using ME21N with Freight Condition the system assign as default vendor the Document vendor (EKKO-LIFNR) and it's not a mandatory field.

I need to change the setting, to get the field of Frieght Vendor mandatory and without a default value.

It's possible to do in SPRO?

Thanks,

Regards

Matteo

    Hi Matteo,

    If your condition type is having condition category as "B-delivery cost" than you have an option to enter supplier code other then PO vendor.

    This field cannot be made mandatory because some times you don't know the freight vendor until the goods are received to your warehouse.

    So SAP has provided an option to make entry for freight vendor during GRN also,

    This can he handled by entering the "Vendor in GR" as "2-Entry always possible" in your freight condition type by which you can enter the freight vendor code during GRN also.

    Hope it is clear to you..

    Rgds,

    Hi,

    You can also maintain a freight vendor in the condition record provided , you know the rates and the freight vendor in advance.

    Hi,

    Apart from the condition record concept , you can have a Outline aggreemnent for this item and if you refer to this OLA in the PO , the conditions which are maintained in the OLA along with the frieght condition and the vendor defaults in this PO item . This flow can also be viewed in the condition analysis tab below of the conditions .

    How ever if a fright conditions is maintained in the PO means , the frieght vendor is mandatory and however this vendor can be the PO vendor or a separate frieght vendor and hence specially making this field as mandatory is not required .

    Regards,

    Hi,

    There is no use even if you are maintaining the vendor field mandatory inside condition type in PO, since the PO vendor will be copied automatically inside the freight condition type.

    Instead, you can make the condition type in M/06 with vendor in GR as 2 (Entry Always Possible), so that the actual freight vendor can be mentioned at the time of GR.

    Refer:
