Hello Experts,

We have multiple companies configured in SAP ByDesign solution For e.g. A B & C company

We have one supplier who supplies to all of our companies For e.g. Supplier name Dell

Dell can supply material to all of my company but i want to stop buying Dell from Company B, but Company A & C will be buying from Dell.

How do i block this supplier to be sent any purchase order from Company ID B?

Please suggest.

Regards, Vishal Kambare

Actually, we cannot block procurement from a supplier from one company.

However, we can block the payment of a supplier in the specific company. It can reduce the risk for payment after procurement.

Nearest one.

Even in this case, still we are able to create Purchase Orders & Supplier is bound to deliver goods against PO.

Hi Vishal,

From an Authorization perspective.

You could look at what values are maintained in the below objects for the specific user - and then remove the required company code.

M_BEST_EKG Purchasing Group in Purchase Order

M_BEST_EKO Purchasing Organization in Purchase Order

M_BEST_WRK Site in Purchase Order

This will restrict the user to only be able to do what is maintained in the objects.

Speak to your authorization/basis consultant.

Hi Jason,

Here I want to block only specific Supplier from purchasing (temporarily),

I dont want to restrict user (its centralized Purchase scenario & user should have authority to create PO for all companies)

If id remove authorization from users, he can not create PO for any of the vendor.. correct?

Thanks for input.

Hi Vishal,

The Supplier master data can be blocked for a given Purchasing Organization (if your Supplier has been replicated from ECC then use t-code MK01/MK02/MK03 or centrally XK01/02/03, then after change is done replicate it again). Then the Purchasing Organization responsible for a given Company will not be able to use that Supplier anymore.
