    Hi,

    Both document number (EBELN) and vendor number (LIFNR) contains in the PO header table (EKKO) with unique combination. So it is not possible to assign two vendors for a single document.

    Regards,

    A contract is stored in table EKKO, just go SE11 and check what key fields are available for the document. I think it is self-explaining.As long as the vendor number is not a key field, you cannot have the same number for 2 different vendors.

    External Document no. is a legal document for one vendor.

    One document number can contain only one vendor. Its never carry more than one header level. Header level of purchasing document is always carry one line item.

    Its applicable for PO, Contract, SA, RFQ.
