Info Update for PO Consignment

Hi all,

I have a strange issue. I have default values for buyers ti auto-info update for every PO.

When i create a consignment PO the info update indicator is not selected automatically, but i am able to select it in the material tab. Why is this happening?

I would like consignment info records to be created automatically as standard info records do.

BR

    Ali,

    Provided Info record of category consignment is maintained; THEN the check box will be seen selected; for regular purchase , that appears by default.

    System looks for consignment info record; since it is not available, the check box gets removed whenever you create a consignment PO.

    • Ali,

      Same logic (of Std PIRs) does not apply to consignment.

      For your case, I am presuming you've checked your system defaults.

      Check OMFI. The default value for info record update indicator must be 'A' (not blank).

      Make sure the EVO parameter is assigned to yourself in defaults.

      Now create a PO for a new material.

      See that the PIR check box appears by default.

      Change the item category of consignment, it goes away.

    Read OSS note 841600 - ME31L: Kein Info Update bei Konsignationspositionen

    and debug the very small program MM06EFIN_SPINF_SETZEN

    • okay.

      I am just thinking whether it could be logical to create an consignment info record

      If I create a consignment PO, then I get warning message ME399 telling me the the info record is not available and that you have to have a price in the PO for consignment orders, in the long text of the message is a hyperlink that calls ME11 to create an info record manually.

      If SAP would be able to auto create info records then this link would not be needed.

      Beside of that, neither price nor conditions are ever written to the Info Record, hence auto creation would not help to complete the PO without this ME399 message.

      But the message is just a warning, and the price in the PO is not really needed since only a price in info record is needed when you do goods issues.

      And while testing, my defaulted X in the info update box did not disappear at all.

    Hi Sameer,

    I have already see this and you are correct. Somehow, i had the idea that the info update indicator would work the same way.

    Hi Jurgen,

    I as thinking the same if info update makes sense. However, why then it is possible to select the info update manually. In your case the info update tick did not disappear because probably a standard info record exist for this material-vendor.

    If you try with a material that no info record exists at all, then the info update tick will disappear.

    So i suppose automatically it is not possible to have the info update for consignment.

    Hi,

    You can possibly check two things:

    1. OMEV - Check if 'consignment info record' option is active

    2. Also if special procurement indicator is maintained as 10 in material master.

    Along with above mentioned points.

    If Standard info record exists then system creates automatically consignment info record. Otherwise no info record is created and it has to be created manually.
