    Hi John

    Can you check whether purchasing group is maintained in Bid Invitation header ?

    It's not a mandatory field.

    When a user belonging to a Purch. grp creates a bid invitation, purchasing group field is not filled automatically.

    Best regards

      Hi Ramki,

      The Pur group field is in the Search screen.(Extended Search).So how does the Header value matter?The value is not getting displayed in the Search list.

    Hi All,

    I think I maight asked wrong way.. let me ask this way.. I have added a custom field as Purch.Gr in the Bid invitation - Extended search.. that is works fine and i can see all purchasing groups..

    my problem is when i choose the purch.gr from the search help and click the START Button to see the bid invitation created with Purcha.Gr.. I could not see any Bid invitation. but there are 1000+ created with using that chosen Purch.GR..

    I try in different way too to find the soluction But i couldn't.. the other way which i tried was.. I know there is a Purchase Org.. Standard field available in the Extended Search ..even though I added a Custom field as Purch.Org and try to see the Bid invitation for that Purcha.Org.. Nothing is display.. but when i choose the same Purch.Org in the Standard field and click the Start button..Yes.. I can see the bid invitation but same Pur.Org in the Custom field does n't bring any Bid invitiation..

    Did i miss anything?

    john..

      Hi

      Please ensure that Attaching the custom field to the corresponding Standard SRM Include structure.. That is the most important pre-requisite..

      If you want to define new fields in new structures, use the INCL_EEW* structures.

      - INCL_EEW_PD_HEADER_CSF_BID

      - INCL_EEW_PD_ITEM_CSF_BID

      Note 809630 - Customer field in bid invitation and bid - How does it work?

      See SAP OSS Note - 672960 for more details...

      Note 809628 - Table like customer fields from bid invitation in bid

      Note 798731 - Bid: Bid Inv. Customer fields not visible

      Do let me know..

      Regards

    John

    I am little bit confused.

    If you want to maintain a custom field in bid invitation and then use this field to search also, then you need to use the structures:

    1) INCL_EEW_PD_HEADER_CSF_BID

    2) If you want to see in search results:

    INCL_EEW_PD_SEARCH_HDR_CSF_BID

    Best regards
