Sources of Supply with Outline Agreement

We are using Classic secnario in EBP 4.0, SAP 4.6C and WAS 6.2. so Shopping cart would generate Purchase requisition/Purchase orders in R/3 system based on Vendor picked in sources of supply's field.

We have a customization in the sources of supply tab of the shopping cart. Based on the Plant in Basic data tab of the shopping cart, Sources of supply tab would show the available outline agreement and vendor number for the SC's product category. From the available list, If we choose any one of the vendor and outline agreement in the shopping cart, it would generate Purchase order in the backend system otherwise it would generate Purchase requisition. This functionality is working good for most of the plants in the system but few Plants are having some problem, insted of Purchase orders, it is generating Purchase requsition in the backend system even though Outline agreement and vendor is picked in the shopping cart.

Can someone have any clue, what setting we need to make on the Plant to generate PO instead of PR when it is used in shopping cart with outline agreement.

Thanks in advance!

    How did you control to show contracts based on plants? Using BADI?

    Normally contracts will be created for the combination of Vendor, Company code and Purchase org. I dont know how you define it for plant.

    Check if your new plant users are in the same Purchase org as the old plant users?

    Did you find any vendor assigned in SOS tab during SC creation? If source is not recognised then PR will be created in Backend. If Vendor is picked up from a contract then check if contract is valid or extended to your purch org.

    PS : reward points if helpful.

    Dear Mrudula:

    Looking at the problem, please check the Contract in R/3 wheather its Plant specific or Purchasing Organization Specific. If its plant specific, and the plant you have selected in Shopping Cart is not same as Contracted plant, then PR will be generated instead RO.

    I hope this will answer your querry.
