Country of origin


If we purchase same material from different vendors from diffrent countires, how can we maintain country of origin in material master . Instead of maintaining in material master , can we maintain only in info record /vendor master in such cases and does PO pick up the country of origin ? Thanks

    Even your vendors are in many different countries, it is possible that the country of origin is still just one country, if these vendors do not manufacture theirselfs.

    From info record it will default to PO.,

    the field is on the import data tab ob the item.

    But the import data tab is only presented if it is an import and you need to do import reporting like INTRASTAT in Europe.

    Or if you have customized your system to always show this import screens.

    For what reason do you need the country of origin?.

    if you cannot use the material master, then the only place to store it for your stock is in the batch record. If you don't manage your material in batches, then you are not able to determine from which vendor and from what CoO the material was, anyway.

    if you use batch mgmt, then you can maintain the COO on the batch master record (MSC2n)

      we have maintain in material master data . it should determine in Billing document . but this is not happening

      we create SO - Va01 and with reference to SO we will create billing document in which the Country of origin is not determining

      Is there any other configuration is neededu2026u2026the country key is defined already

    Country of Origin in the PO always gets populated from the material master FT data view. Also by definition it is not the vendor country that is why in PO it is not getting populated from Info-record even if maintained there.

    If the business decision is to make the CoO field to vendor country then the way to achieve this through user exit in the FT data declaration transactions like MEIS or VE01 for intrastat.
