Purchasing Groups for multiple Purchase Organizations


Dear all,

in SRM 5.0 we are using two different purchase organizations which are linked to backend purchase organizations in extended classeical szenario.

When I try to assign purchasing groups linked to backend purchasing groups to both both purchase organizations I get the following error message:

>> Purchasing group xxx in system xxx already assigned to unit xxx

>> Message no. BBP_ATTR030


>> Diagnosis

>> You have attempted to enter the backend ID of a purchasing group or to change an existing one. >> >> However, this backend ID is already allocated to unit xxx (organizational unit xxx) in the organizational structure.



>> Procedure

>> Enter a different backend ID for the selected purchasing group.

Is there a way to assign purchasing groups to more than one purchase org?

Thanks and regards
