Source list defaulting Inter Company Vendor code

Source list requirement has been set in IMG for our plant . Hence I need to create source list for Intra company stock transfer (between plants belonging to same

company code ) . Wen I try to enter the supplying plant (PPL ) in the source list , the corresponding intercompany Vendor code (T001W-LIFNR) is getting defaulted in
the Vendor field (EORD-LIFNR) . I dont want this Inter company Vendor code pertaining to my supplying plant to get defaulted in the Vendor field of the source list and wanted this field to be blank . As per my understanding, for intra company transfer, vendor code in the source list is not required and only the supplying plant needs to be filled .
Not sure if this a standard behavior of the system and is there is any exit or BADI available to clear this intercompany vendor in the source list ?

What is your actual problem with the SAP standard design? What does not work if the vendor number is filled in the source list?

Hi

We are creating STO for storage location transfer belonging to the same plant . Since Source list requirement is mandatory at IMG , we are forced to define source list . While defining source list ,receiving plant and supplying plant are same and hence the Intercompany Vendor code getting defaulted expects the vendor code to be extended for the Purchase org assigned to the Plant . We will not extend the intercompany vendor to the Purchase org that plant belongs to .This IS the issue we ARE facing . We can extend the Intercompany vendor to the same purch org , however just wondering why the intercompany vendor code should be defaulted for Intra company STO that too between storage location belonging to the same plant . Also not sure why system should prompt for source list requirement if we are doing a internal transfer (between storage location of the same plant) using STO .

I guess you get an error if you have not extended the vendor, which error is this exactly. the number makes it easier to find a solution - if there is any

The error message is "Vendor XXXX not yet created by Purchase Organization .

Message no:06321

I tried finding if there is BADI or user exist in Purchase order creation to skip source list check if the STO is for

storage location transfer between the same plant . However I couldn't find any BADI or user exit for this requirement . Standard SAP system is checking for source list requirement even if it is a internal transfer and this is forcing us to create source list which in turn is having issues as mentioned above.

It is certainly standard that the vendor number is pulled into the source list if the vendor has a plant assignment, this assignment is anyway at client level even it is made from the purchasing organization view, it is stored in T001W table.

There is no BAdI to get around to my knowledge, using purchase orders simply means doing external procurement.

Maybe you can get around this by making the hard coded error message a warning by implementing the modification provided in OSS note 864006 - Error 06 321 in source list for cross company procurement

Thanks for the inputs . We have already checked this OSS note 864006 and our business does not want to remove this Purchase org /vendor validation in source list . Raised a OSS message with SAP to see if there are any other workaround . If not then we need to convince our business to extend the intercompany vendor code to its own purchasing org .
