create an MM info record for more than one vendor

Hello community and dear experts,

Following one of our customer requirements, we would like to create an info record and update it for several vendors in one go.

We would like to do that with "intercompany vendors" - we create them under the same account group (ZINT).

A solution could be that, at creating a normal Info Record and specifically, at the moment of saving, if the vendor belongs to the ZINT account group a pop-up would show other vendors to be selected before saving. After saving will be created as many Info Records as vendor selected - with the same material, same organisational data, same data... and a different vendor each.

Is it reasonable to do solve it this way? Do you know a better solution? How could that be achieved?

Thanks in advance,

David

An info record is unique for a vendor and material combination, so you can't create several info record at once from the standard maintenance transaction. You need an own program for this requirement.

Hi,

I dont think its possible. selecting multiple vendors and expecting the system to create multiple info records is no way possible.

May be if you want mass creation , you can try BDC methods.

Hello,

An info record number will generated with material and vendor combination to particular plant which you want create a info record, where as now you can create info record using ME11 transaction code and same way you if there are multiple info records to create you can use LSMW tool by recording the transaction code!

Hi,

Its not possible without lsmw or bdc methods, or else you can set automatic creation of purchase info records through standard means,whenever a purchase order is created. The setting is found under material tab , check the info update indicator.

Dear all,

I'll add some more comments to clarify the topic:

- I know this behaviour is not standard

- I know this will need programming. But I don't know where to add the code or how to approach this modification (exit, enhancement ...?) <= and that's specifically why I'm asking, Mr. Rashid Ali.

- The final transaction will be used by USERS - that's why I would prefer not to use LSMW or BDC etc. Trying to be more "user-friendly".

Thanks you very much for your time and help,

David
