06 437: Distr. ind. and partial invoice ind. must be set for multiple acct. assgt."

Hello,

Generally when we create a multiple account assigned Purchase order, and distribution is via quantity or percentage, we need to set the partial invoice indicator as “Distribute in sequence” or “Distribute proportionally” as per our requirement.

I have a scenario where system allowed to save the PO with partial invoice indicator as "Derive from account assigned category." Configuration settings in OME9 for partial invoice indicator is maintained as "blank" for the account assignment category used.

Can someone tell how and when the system allows such cases to happen.

Thanks in advance!

    In standard, when you choose a entry in field Distribution, then you have to select a value in partial invoice, else system issues the message. OME9 setting can have blank for the field partial, but in PO, you have to select an entry for the field.

    Error message 06437 is hard coded, condition is that EKPO - VRTKZ (Distribution indicator for multiple account assignment) or EKPO - TWRKZ (Partial Invoice Indicator) is null, you'll get the error message 437. Not possible to save PO without any value for these fields when MAA is used.
