Different procurement type in ECC and APO

Hi Expert,

We are facing issue of different procurement type in ECC and APO

in ECC it is "F" but in APO it is "P"

Plant material status was change which is replicating same in APO and ECC but how the procurement type got change.

When we check in quality system- if we change the plant material status in ECC then the same will replicate in APO but procurement type is same as previous.

Please help on this how can I find it is change by some functionality or it has been changed manually. can we find log somewhere of this change?

    Procurement type can be altered automatically to P for objects that have been removed from an integration model. This requires 2 events to happen:

    1. When you activate, you have set CFM2 (or CFM3) to "log deactivated material masters"

    2. You run program RCIFMTDE from time to time in ECC.

    If you do not wish this behavior, you can change your activation process so as not to create deactivation logs. Or, never run RCIFMTDE.

    If this material/plant filter object actually exists in an active Model, and should be integrated with APO, then I suspect that this filter object also exists more than one model. Delete all IMs that contain this Material/plant, then run RIMODINI against the single remaining IM.

    If you wish to see Product master changes in APO, you will have to configure the system to record these changes. Once changes are being recorded, you can see them in SCM transaction /SAPAPO/PROD_CD_READ.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Jeet,

    Is the MRP Type in the Material Master X0?

    If yes, please try to do an initial transfer of the Location-Product to APO and see if the Procurement Type is corrected.

    If not, please, open the customizing for the MRP Type assigned to the material and make sure that the Planning Method field has value 1 (Planned By External System) - this is the field that indicates the material should be planned in APO:

    When an integration model is generated for a material which does not have Planning Method 1, Procurement Type 'P' is automatically chosen and the Location-Product can only be displayed in APO, but not planned.
