Sap Purchase Requsitions for contract crossover


We seem to have an issue where contracts are being renewed but the purchase requisitions are not auto populating the contract data correctly.

In the example I have, we have two contracts.

Contract A = Valid from 1/1/2017 to 30/6/2017

Contract B = Valid from 01/07/2017 to 31/12/2017.

ME57 is showing the purchase requisitions for this material as blank, and only when you manually assign the source of supply does it assign the contract from the correct date range.

Am I correct in thinking this issue is driven by the source list not being maintained? We have an automatic sync from contract to source list yet for some unknown reason this does not work when we have multiple open contracts.

    Hi Rebecca,

    I assume you are correct. As per standard automatic source of supply works only with source list and not with contract.

    I have seen scenarios where PR and PO ARE CREATED based on the reference from contract.

    That means in the initial creation of PR AND PO it self you need provide contract number and then automatically it created PO with reference to contract.

    I hope you got it what I am trying to say.

    Best Regards,

    program works as designed, today is June 14 and not yet July 1st, SAP checks with current date.

    You can change the behavior with a Badi, see OSS note 44368 - Contract as source of supply
