Issue a PR for a negative value. (ME51N)

A vendor replaced parts on a piece of equipment. Since the parts still had value to the vendor, they want to issue us a credit. However, due to our own policies, the vendor needs a PO to apply the credit. When I use ME51N to create a PR, I receive the error message "Please check the price." and will not let me continue (save).

Is there any way to create the PR, to get a PO that has only a credit on it?

    Hi,

    This is a Functional issue. You can consult with MM consultants.

    Hi,

    I don't think you can create a credit PR. You can create a credit PO.

    I've notified a moderator since this is not the correct space for functional MM-PUR questions.

    Kind regards, Rob Dielemans

    you have a policy that the vendor needs a PO to apply the credit, quite confusing.

    You probably mean you have a policy that any invoice (and credit note) needs a purchase order. Your vendor does not need such things and has probably his own policies.

    Beside of that it would make much more sense to have a policy to create a PO when you want your vendor to exchange parts, which would mean a PO for the return of the faulty part which is then the basis for the credit note and another PO for the new part which will then need an invoice from your vendor .
