SAP Free Text PO - Error with Inter company vendors


I'm trying to create Free text PO with account assignment category "L Profit Center". The Vendor is inter company vendor - The plant is assigned in Vendor master > Purchasing Data > Addl. purchasing Data.

I get the error: Procurement w/o material from vendor with plant assignment not defined

Message no. 06806

I came to know that the program fix is already in our system and the OSS note 856962 is applicable to older releases only. But I still get this error. So, please recommend what other settings I need to do to fix this problem.

    Looks like you understood the OSS note wrong.

    It fixed an error where it was possible to save the order while the message 06806 was there.

    The SAP design has not really foreseen to create STOs without material, the long text of the message explains the reason pretty well.

    However, this message is customizable and you can turn it to a warning. Execute OLME transaction, then go Environment Data -> Define Attributes of System Messages -> System messages

    This allows you to create the PO. You have to test how the supplying plant can fulfill this PO, where you can see it and how you can issue the "text material" to complete the process
