Purchase order for a line item

Hi Guys,

I have got the following business sceanrio.

I have got a material "A" which can get from locally or can get from 3rd party also.

In the sales order i have entered like following.

Line item no. Material Qunatity Item category

10 A 100

20 A 500

As only 100 quantity is available in my stock i want to go with 3rd party for line item 20.

How can i go ahead in this scenario.

What would be the item categories for two line items?

If i go with Purchase order for line item 20. Where in sales order i can track that, Line item 20 is getting thru Purchase order, My requirement is to store the corresponding purchase order no for each line item getting from 3rd party (STO also).

Thank you

Anil

    for delivery from stock use the item category TAN

    For procuring it from Vendor use the item category - TAS/TAB

    Once you use item category TAS/TAB, in sales order schedule line tab, you will be able to see the purchase requisition no. Based on this PR a PO is created.

    You can see the document flow in sales order to see the PO no. Also, if you wnt you can go to table VBFA to get the document flow.

    Thanks

    Hi Anil,

    For delivery from stock use the item category TAN

    For procuring it from Vendor use the item category - TAS/TAB

    Check whether the ITEM CATEGORY GROUP & GENERAL ITEM CATEGORY GROUP for Material B is BANS/BANC & the Material type is HAWA.

    Once you get the item category TAS/TAB, in sales order save it and go to Change to mode of the Sales Order then you can see the purchase requisition no in the Schedule line tab. Based on this Purchase Requisition a PO is created.

    After you save the PO note down the PO number and then raise Goods Receipt (MIGO) with reference to the PO number.

    Now you can goto MMBE and check the Stock for Material B.

    Reward if helpful.

    Regards
