How to find out who had created Planned Ind requirement for a material in MD04

Dear SAP Gurus,

I am facing the following Issue in MD04. I am not able to find out how one particular PIR got created (or who had created).

The PIR is created through an Interface. User enter the forecast requirement through a SPS file through interface and that gets reflected in SAP as PIR.

Now there is one Huge Quantity appearing in MD04 for the material which User had not entered or not available in the SPS file used for updating through Interface.

Can anyone provide inputs how to track back the flow of this PIR to the file that creates via an Interface or any other way to find it out.

I have attached the Screen shot of MD04,

Thanks in advance.

Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Velmurugan,

    Go to element details in MD04 > Display element > Select the line in planning table (with PIR) > Go to > item history

    You will get the details of user who has created the PIR.

    Hi Velmurugan,

    Go in MD63, (assuming, interface is just calling MD61/62 only). Put the material number, plant, requirement type and period. Enter.

    Select that line and in menu bar under GOTO, click on item history. There you can see person who put this.

    Let me know if it resolved your issue.

    Dear Velmurugan,

    By joining two tables you can get this data who made changes in the planned independent requirements i.e. first pass part number and plant in to the MDPB and get the Pointer number

    pass the pointer number --> PBED you will get the last changed by whom and when

      This has very little to do with SAP ECC PP.

      From your most recent answers, this also seems to have little to do with SAP APO, or any other standard SAP solution.

      This issue evidently has to do with a customized interface and a customized procedure that was custom created by/for your company.

      You have now displayed more screenshots; this time with a Z table that is meaningless to us here in SCN. These screenshots do not uncover anything to SCN contributors that will help you with the answers you seek.

      There are several standard methods, and there are dozens of custom methods, to get PIRs into ECC. We here in the SCN forums have no way of knowing how your interface is designed to work, nor if there are any auditing capabilities built in within that design. You need to obtain these answers internally.

      You could either obtain the internal documentation for this process that SHOULD have been prepared when the solution was created (good luck with that!) or you need to speak to your local experts; preferably the person who designed the interface. If such a person is not available, then I suggest that you engage an external consulting resource that is expert in similar interfaces, who will come in and analyze your systems, and your custom solution, at the level of detail that would be required to generate the answers you seek

      Best Regards & Good luck,
