Customer not transferred from sales order to PR for third party subcontracting

We have a unique issue in setting up third party subcontracting scenario. Here based on the sales order (item category TAQ) the system generates a PR with item category L & account assignment X. The PR also contains the sales order number and this is converted to subcon PO. The subcon vendor directly delivers the material to the customer similar to regular third party scenario and we just do a dummy GR. The entire cycle works fine but for one issue. When the PR is autoamtically geenrated from the sales order, it does not have the customer and its delivery address. We tried to check any config missing but could not find anything. Inputs will be appreciated.

    Did you check the scenario with standard item cat TAS and schedule line cat CS? Is it working correctly in this case?

    • Hi AKPT MM,

      You are right. If the item category in the schedule line category is changed from 3 to 5 i.e. subcontracting to third pary the customer gets populated. However very recently I came across a document published by Sheetal Premnath on SCN ( where in the last screenshot I saw both vendor and customer in the GR partner tab while the PO was with X & L combination. Not sure how exactly that was achieved. Also it seems logical to have cusotmer as this is actually a third party subcon process as after the GR the material does not come to the plant but directly goes to the customer like in standard third party.
