Converting requisitions into PO's

Our users create shopping carts in SRM. Once approved, they become a purchase requisition in SAP. If the items were to a fixed vendor, a PO is automatically created. However, for those times that a preferred vendor was used, the requisition is manually turned into a PO. Is there a way to prevent multiple requisitions on the same PO even though the steps are done by human intervention? Each requisition is unique and should not be combined on one PO.

    Monique,

    You may want to consider custom solution through user exit on this requirement. Enhancement LMEKO001 / LMEKO002 provides you an access to requisition number used to create PO, so you can possibly provide a check in this user exit. You will need to work through several conditions on the check logic, though (e.g., will the check be done only to prevent several requisitions from being converted to one PO in a single transaction, should the check be done on other POs that are previously created for the same vendor).

    The other alternative you may consider is setting up material group based contract. It's been a while since I touched SRM, but I believe sourcing based on contract will allow you to create PO directly from shopping cart.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello Monique,

    When you use ME59 to convert PR to PO there are several options on how you want to combine your purchase requisition for new purchase order.

    You need to select the option as per your requirement, in this case you need to uncheck all options but "Per Requisition".

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

      Hello Monique,

      In ME21N, when selecting more than one Pur requisitioin, they System is not issuing any message so you need to try some other option.
