Auto Source determination not happening/incomplete

Hello Experts ,

I have a material assigned to a quota arrangement usage in material master - MRP 2 View with usage in MRP ticked.

Source list maintained for the material/plant with 2 vendor codes and both releveant for MRP '1' Quota arrangement maintained with proper validity periods. But when i generate purchase requisitions via MRP,MRP generates PRs with the required vendors for quota quantities but this source assignemnt is incomplete -in a sense because Pur Org field is not getting populated . . and hence when i am trying to edit and save PReqs or convert it to PO it gives dump.

I have to assign the Pur Org manually either by ME57 or via 'assign source' tab in PR item details. I have maintained EVO parameter in my user id also. Not sure what I have missed. Please help!

Regards DEN

PS:I have already referred earlier post but the suggested master data/config there is already in place

    Hello, @Caetano, I will check the suggetion you provided. @Peter, As i mentioned when I use "Assign source of Supply" then it works fine and assigns the Pur Org automatically. @Shailesh,there is no dump but the error message is "Enter Purchasing Org." Any further inputs appreciated... DEN

    A dump is totally unusual and either caused by a unforeseen situation in own or in SAP coding.

    This can only be analyzed further if the content of the dump is known. discuss this with your ABAPer.

    2 vendors with MRP indicator in the source list have never been a good idea. As SAP then cannot decide which one to use and takes one randomly.

    For quota arrangements you should actually have a 2 instead of a 1 in the source list.

    And you should actually have the quota arrangement in the source list, so you only need the MRP relevancy indicator at the quota arrangement only.

    Please compare your doing with the KBA 1508647 - MRP does not consider the quota arrangement

    • Hello

      The source list looks fine.

      Technically speaking, the purchasing organization is from the source list on program LM61YF3H of form CHECK_ORDERBUCH, on the following line:

      MOVE eordx-ekorg TO mdpsn-ekorg

      You can set a break-point on the beginning of this program, run MRP and check why this line is not reached.

    When you click on "Assign source of Supply" button in PR does system give you any error/warning message?

    Thank you
