Procurement profile canont be changed

Hi SRM gurus,

We are working on a PDP scenario where the PR is transfered from R/3 to EBP as shopping cart through the standard BBP_EXTREQ_TRANSFER and we are getting the following error :

"Procurement profile cannot be changed " Message no. 6Q 204.

we are not able to transfer PR to SRM because of this error.

Our SRM is 5.0 and our backend is ECC 6.0 which was upgraded from 4.7 recently.

Could there be any config missing?

The idoc shows green though in R/3

Any suggestions.

Best regards,

    this message is thrown from the R/3 System and not from the SRM System.

    please have a look at the function module

    BBP_EPROFILE_REQ_CHANGE in the R/3 System..

    this is the place where the above mentioned error message is handled.



    profile cannot be changed, because it is already transfered

    <profile_n> = <profile_o>.

    MOVE im_eban_old-ekgrp TO ch_eban_new-ekgrp.


    RAISE error_message.



    are you transfering the PR first time (or) second time , let me know

    Hi Sridhar,

    This error is in R/3 only.

    Possibly there can be one of the following mismatch appeared.

    1) I would suggest you to first check in table V_160EX about matl grp and pur grp combination with profile.

    If table entry is missing for specific matl grp and pur grp, which you actually used in creation of PR, then also this sort of error appears.

    2) Once PR is created, check the entry in EBAN table and make sure that EPROFILE (external procurement profile) is ticked.
