Dear Gurus, We've created an RFQ for one of our vendor, but when we trying to maintain the source list, we get the error that says "Vendor differs from vender".

May you please explain what causing the error and how to correct it.

When exactly do you get this error?

do you get this error In the moment you go into the detail of the source list, or after entering an item in the source list?

Yor screenshot shows a RFQ and a source list with the vendor from the RFQ. But the source list has also a contract number, how is this related to your RFQ?

Or did you just overwrite the vendor number that was listed in this line with the vendor number from your RFQ?

The message actually seems to be clear to me, your contract has a different vendor number than the number you just entered.

Please explain in detail step wise what you see when you go into the source list, and what you enter and where

Of course should you have the same vendor in the contract as in the source list, You do not even need to manually type the vendor number,

Just enter the validity from and to date, the contract number along with its item number. SAP then adds the vendor number automatically, and so you will never get an error message for a different vendor.

Why did you even get the idea to enter a different vendor number than you have in the contract?

Hi Jurgen,

We get this error when we try to maintain the source list.

The vendor number was manually typed in the source list, same as the validity, purchasing organisation, agreement number, agreement item, and the use of material requirement

Thus, when we save the source list, the error message comes up.

Does that mean the contract has a different vendor number than the number we have just entered in the source list?

Should we have the same vendor number as the contract?

Hello Thokkozani,

You mention- "Does that mean the contract has a different vendor number than the number we have just entered in the source list?"

I think this is something you can check in your system by just comparing the Vendor of the contract & the one you entered- this is not something you should be asking , correct?

Also, as Jurgen mentioned very correctly - "You do not even need to manually type the vendor number,

Just enter the validity from and to date, the contract number along with its item number. SAP then adds the vendor number automatically, and so you will never get an error message for a different vendor"

Thanks,

Kavita

Hello Thokkozani,
Just enter the validity and contract number along with item and then hit enter and see the magic(system picks up the exact vendor number from contract).you will see the same error at the time of creating release order (PO against a contract) if PO vendor is mismatched with the contract vendor.Thanks,Nasz
