Multiple PO for Single SC


I am shopping through a catalogue & buying two different product categories. Both the item in the Catalogue

are refered to two diffrent contract. Contract no. is available in the catalogue field.Both product categories belongs to same purchasing Grp.

Once SC is approved, system is generating a single PO for this two line item.

Since both the line item belong to different contract, why it doesn't produce two diffrent PO?

is this a standarad behaviour of system not to split even if two diffrent contracts are used in SC?

If i have to split on the basis of contract then what should i do? is it possible to use badi "BBP_GROUP_LOC_PO"

Just to verify this behavior one more time, i change the product responsibility of one of the product category & assigned it to diffrent purchasing grp.

After doing this change, when i shopped again, system produced two PO's.

System is splitting PO on the basis of Purchasing grp, since purchasing grp. in PO is a header level information.

    Hi. The system splits as standard on any fields in the header of the PO in R/3.

    Purchasing group is in the header (table EKKO), that is why it created 2 POs.

    Contract number and item is stored at item level in R/3 (table EKPO) that is why only 1 PO is generated.

    The BADI to use if you want to change this is BBP_SC_TRANSFER_BE method GROUP_PO.
