    Hi Karan,

    Please Follow step to get the PO create automatically.

    1) In Vendor master record -- purchasing view -- check the automatic PO option

    2) In material master record -- Purchasing view -- check the automatic PO option , maintain a Purchaing Group

    3) Now goto IMG --> Materials Management --> Inventory Management and Physical Inventory --> Goods Receipt --> Create Purchase Order Automatically --> Check the automatic PO option against 101 MVT

    4) Goto MIGO --> Settings --> Default values --> In the NON ORDERED ITEMS AT GOODS RECEIPT FOR PURCHASE ORDER tab , in material field give MVT 101 --> click on adopt

    5)You have to maintain a Standard Purchasing Org.

    Goto IMG -->Enterprise Structure >Assignment>Materials Management->Assign standard purchasing organization to plant

    6)Create a PIR for that standard P.ord , Pgroup maintained in MMR ( make sure that you have only created one PIR for that material , Vendor , Plant , Porg , Pgroup combination)

    7) Now create the GR following the exact steps what you do generally when you create a GR without PO

    At the time of GR, maintain Vendor code in Partner tab

      Hi karan,

      Please Create the PIR with Vendor, Material,Plant & Porg and now select the Info Category as Subcontract. It will serve as gateway to create Subcontract order while doing the GR.

      Goto SPRO->Inventory Management->Good's Reciept->Check automatic PO w.r.t mov type.

      Maitain the same in Material and vendor master.

      It will work.

    This outlined process is not available in SAP.

    Why would you need to repack?

    Why don't you order in the right package right away?

    If you would make use of the right process flow then you had already this subcontracting PO and would not need to create it after the GR of the ordered material.

    you should have requirements for material B (repacked from Material A) e.g. from sales orders or just from reorder point planning.

    This material B would need a special procurement key for subcontracting

    you then get a requisition for B and if A is not available in your plant then you get even a requisition for material A that will be consumed in the subcontract order for B.

    And in this standard process you could make use of auto PO creation via ME59N (even setup as batch job) to create your POs.
