PO line item material can not be changed. SAP gives message 06387.

Hello,

When we create purchase orders with reference to Quotations, SAP is not letting us change the PO part number after the PO has been created. SAP generates message 06387 saying that 'Agreement item contains a different material'. Because we created this PO from quotation, SAP is giving a message saying that PO part number and RFQ part number are different. In our case, since ours is a prototype environment, our part numbers change very often. Most of the times, there is no change in the PO value except a minor change in the design drawing. We don't want to delete the PO and re-create it because we are doing approvals at the PO level. We don't want to send this PO again for approval.

We customized above message to Warning in the configuration but SAP is ignoring it.

This happens only if a PO is created with reference to RFQ.

Is there any workaround solution for this?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Shyam

    Hi Shyam,

    You can consider to use MPN functionality to cover this issue, so the internal number still the same, but you can change the part number during PO.
