I have purchase requisitions created by manual and by MRP.

If I want to convert purchase requisitions only created by MRP,

which column should I use?

I think I can use "Requisitioner".

Do someone have better ideas?

Best regards,

Mei

Do you have a separate document type for MRP PR's? Also, in Contact person tab of PR item, the MRP controller is always blank for Manual PR's. May be you can check if you can make use of these fields and control PO Conversions.

Thank you for your comment.

No, the same document type is used for both PR by MRP and by manual.

If the material master has a MRP controller, the PR by manual has also a MRP controller.

I mean that the same material is used for MRP and manual to create purchase requisitions.

Best regards,

MRP created requisitions will not have a value in the requisitioner field.

if you always fill the requisitioner field for manual PR then you can use this field to get the desired result. You only have to make sure that your selection is executed with the EQUAL sign in front of the requisitioner field (put cursor into the requisitioner field, press F2 and select the equal sign)

Thank you for your comment.

I think that the requisitioner field has MRP controller text in a purchase requisition by MRP.

So, I think the requisitioner field can decide whether purchase requisition made by MRP or not.

Do you know better field?

you are right, I just double checked in my system, the requisitioner field gets its content from the controller.

Based on that I see no chance but a modification to achieve your goal. None of the available fields can be used to differentiate between different creation methods of requisitions.

what is the significant difference in a manual PR that it must not be used in a auto PO?

Thank you for your comment.

Actually, a manual PR is already used in a auto PO(ME59N) through background job.

Users want to check purchase requisitions created by MRP and use ME59N to convert them on screen.
