external operation without a component - subcontracting

I have a routing where I have 2 operations (0010 and 0020). all my components are assigned to op 0010 and op 0020 is just some cleaning stuff which is outsourced to a vendor. I created a subcon info record without material and purchase req is created successfully and I can see that in production order operation tab.. all my master data is in place..when i try to convert my pur req to purchase order system says error "components are not determined"..

does this mean, I cannot do operation external processing without sending a component? wht does companies do when there is no component sent to vendor and they just need some service from external vendor

p.s: please understand that I am not using assembly subcontracting..my query is related to production order external operation processing

    one other question I have is..

    once I receive the GR for purchase order, I have read that there is no need to confirm operation 0020..it will get status EODL..

    but when I look at co14 with the order and operation 0020, system says confirmation not done yet..
