    Dear Vinoth,

    There are some pre-requisites to work with source list.

    While creating PR, if user not selected 'source determination' check box and not performed 'Assign source of supply', then source list vendor will not come to PR.

    In the material master 'Source List' indicator should be ticked and For the source list vendors, maintain info record and Need to perform 'Source determination' and 'Assign source of supply' at the time of PR creation.

    Hi, As a matter of fact all these come in the supply source determination when you have many vendors for a material . the order is Quota Outline agreement Source list Info Record This all comes in the source assignment during PR creation . System checks in the above order to find the right source . In your case If you have a quota for AAAA vendor system will find this vendor AAAAA during the supply source search . If in case you have quota for AAAA vendor and source list for BBBBB vendor , in the automatic supply source determnation system will have to take the AAAA only . Pre condition is AAAAA quota should be valid . How ever system will allow to change the determined source in the PR . In your case user would have changed the vendor manually or the quota would have been expired . Regards,

    HI,

    you can remove source list indicator check from material master.

    as i understand your question that you want to create PR while source list maintained.

    Hi Vinoth,

    If there is neither a quota arrangement nor a source list, By default system search for valid outline

    agreement items and info records. Therefore you can assign valid outline agreement item or info record

    directly. So that there will be either one valid contract or one valid info record.

    Kindly note : Outline agreement items have a highest priority than info records in the process.

    Thanks,

    Vivek

    • Thank you vivek ji. while make a new outline agreement for one material , system would create a new quota and source list based on contract validity. but our case is entirely different.

      contract, Quota 100% and source list validity is avail for AAAA vendor but PR has been created for BBBB vendor. BBBB vendor also have valid contract. could you explain these case studies..
