Actually I'm looking two materials which are almost same in their master record(MM), but they implementing different in MD04 as one creating Pld Order and one creating DepReq.

I can't Understand, why there is difference....!!!!

Dependent requirement is nothing but the requirement from the header material or some other material. This requirement is purely relying on its header material. Example: Components of BOM.

Whereas Planned orders are results of running MRP. Shortages of materials that are set to internal procurement will create planned orders, which can be converted into production orders. Production orders are like "hard copies", they cannot be adjusted by MRP anymore.

You can see both this element for any element depending upon the material stock situation.

You do not decide if a material will have dependent requirements or planned orders: the same material can have both.

A dependent requirement is generated when this material is a component of a planned order from another header material. A new planned order is generated for the component by MRP to cover this dependent requirement when there is not enough quantity on stock.

Hi, Please check how this 2 materials are maintained in BOM. I mean whether these material are maintained in BOM as component or as Header material. if it is maintained as header material, you will see planned order, if it is maintained as component, you will see dep req.
