We are downloading ME5A report to get the list of purchase requisitions created from previous day MRP run.

If we do not convert some Purchase Requisitions to Purchase Orders, then some Purchase Requisition# changes after MRP run on the following day.

But, the delivery date and quantity remaining same.

Is there any way we can track how long a material is sitting on MRP, although the requisition number getting changed after daily MRP run.

Please help me to understand the logic behind the change of requisition number and how can we keep track in such cases.

Best Regards,

You are probably running MRP using planning mode 3, which deletes and recreates planned orders and requisitions. This is not recommended for performance issues and for several other reasons. See blog for details about planning mode 3.
