    Idealy U should set only one vendor as a fixed vendor in sourse list.U can tick two vendors there also

    If u have ticked 1 vendor as fixed vendor at time of Auto Po only that vendor will be selected for Po

    Yes we can fix more than one vendor for a material in the source list ME01

    For Automatic PO,

    1.set the Auto PO check box ticket in the material master.

    2.Set the AutoPO in the Vendor.

    3.Maintain the Info record

    4.Maintain source list & fix the vendor

    5.Create Purchase requisition

    6.Assign sources of supply

    7.Ensure same purchase group is maintained

    8.Execute ME59 for automatic PO

    Reward if found useful.

    Dear Lakshmi

    1)It is not possible to have two fix vendors for a one material in source list.You cannot maintain source list for one material with two vendors as a fix vendor.

    2)For Auto PO generation followings are prerequisite

    In customizing

    a) auto PO generation must be activated in Movement type 101 & 161

    b) The plant for which GR is generated must be assigned to standard purchasing organization.

    c) Default document type for PO must be specified in GR ( MB01)

    Application side ( Front End)

    a) material must be valuated material

    b)Purchase Info record must exist for Vendor , Material & Standard Pur. Organization

    c)Condition in the info records must be valid

    d)Applicable for stock items & not for consumable items

    e) You cannot book any movement in GR block stock with this

    f) Material Mater & vendor master record is must.

    I hope this will clarify all your queries.

    Regards,

    Vivek Maitra
