item text from sales order to purchase requisition

Hi Experts,

I have below queries ,

1. What are the controls to generate/create a purchase requisition from a sales order.

Is this possible that a Pur. req generated from a sales order but sales order is not its account assignment.

How item text from the sales order can be copied to purchase Requisition, does settings in purchase requisition in SPRO (Purchasing Purchase req -text for purchase req----define copying rules) works only for automatically created Pur req.??

item text from sales order can be copied for PR created through MRP or planned orders converted to PR.??

I will appreciate if someone can provide me documentation on basics of sales and distribution at my email

anandt77@lycos.com

Thanks in advance

    hello, friend.

    i can only answer part of your question as i am not sure of the others. however, yes... you can automatically create a purchase requisition from the sales order.

    one example is third party sales. because of the item category group that you specified in the material master, the sales document determines an item category (and schedule line) that controls the creation of the purchase requisition. here, the system knows that you must source the material from your vendor for delivery to your customer.

    further, as in the above case, when your company creates the PO with reference to the PR, your company appears as the buying entity but the ship-to address is that of your customer.

    i did not understand your question on account assignment. please elaborate and we'll see if we can come up with the answer.

    if you wish to see documentation, you could refer to SAP's article on Third Party Sales. other scenarios such as just-in-time inventory for trading companies or make-to-order companies may also apply.

    regards.

      hello again.

      yes, you will see the sales order number, and the document item number and quantity as well.

      i will research more about the text copying requirement. i tried entering sales text at both header and item level but i could not see these in the purchase requisition. off-hand (without investigating further), i will hypothesize that sales text appear in the sales related delivery, while purchasing text would be relevant only to purchasing related transactionsl

      regards and thanks for your points consideration.
