Create PO as direct material

Hello SRM Experts,

SRM 5.0 (classic scenario)

we like to create a PO, from a QUOT after BID, with transaction type "ECDP" (Direct Material). Therefore we select in QUOT the transaction type "ECDP" and press the "Create PO" button. I can´t see any differents to the transaction type "ECPO" (Normal PO). The Backround is that we like to create a PO without account data (e.g. G/L account, cost center), but we got the same error message both "ECPO" and ECDP". The error message from backend is ME 083 "No cost center".

Has anybody of you an idea how I can use the direct material functionality in QUOT.

Thanks for you help in advance.

Kind regards

Axel

    Hello Axel,

    It seems you are expecting a classic PO for this scenario.

    For direct material SRM can not create classic PO in standard.

    It has to be an ECS which will give copy at backend.

    This is the solution design.

      Hello Dinesh,

      thanks for your input. If I have understood it right, works the direct material scenario just in Extended Classic Scenario (ECS). Creating a local direct material PO and copy the PO to backend.
