Rate Contract Purchase Order ! Urgent

Rate contract purchase order –

My Client Don’t wants to enter quantity in the Purchase Order –

The purchase order is called as Rate contract purchase order (Contract for Per Unit rate of material only). Purchase order is created without entering the quantity. It has specific validity period and overall value limit (It is not compulsory). The multiple Deliveries from vendor are accepted (GR) and invoices are posted against this purchase order, for certain period of time.

It is not possible in standard SAP configuration to make “Quantity” field optional or hide, because this field Mandatory in standard SAP program.

I suggested option of creating “Contract” and “Contract Release orders”, but our client doesn’t want to create the purchase orders on daily or monthly basis.

Also scheduling agreement option is not working, because schedule lines are not final.

Please suggest me the solution on this issue !

    Hi Vijay,

    to clear your doubt, SAP can make the Quantity display instead of Hide function. It not necessary to put Required, it can be Optional or Display.

    This also will work if you have PR for all of your PO, so PO QTY will be copied from PR QTY.

    you may need to check your configuration.

      Thanks Maia, for your reply.

      I have tried your suggestion, I have changed The "Quantity" field for Purchase Order from Mandatory to Optional or Display at document level field selection.

      Even though Quantity field in purchase order is in Display Mode, Then also system issues Error Message, Enter Quantity.

      I have checked it, The Quantity field in Purchase Order is Mandatory In standard SAP Program !

      Thanks !

    Hi,

    Try in the following:

    Option-1

    1. Create Service Order (ME21N, Item category D, account ass. Cat. K 0r C with tick the GR non valuated in Delivery tab in Item details of PO)

    2. Create SES(ML81N){you can do “N” number of SES w.r.t. a single PO

    3. MIR0 ( W.R.T. PO or also you can do MIRO w.r.t. SES)

    Option-2

    4. Create Purchase Order (ME21N, account ass. Cat. K ,without mentioning material ,and GR non valuated in Delivery tab in Item details of PO)

    5. Create GR(MIGO)

    6. MIR0 ( W.R.T. PO)
