System proposed supply from Old Vendor when executing Quota Heuristic

Hi SAP Gurus,

When executing the quota heuristics for materials, we have a scenario wherein Purchase requisition are proposed in the invalid Vendor.

We have created a new Quota Arrangement for a certain Material. We now have a new Vendor which have 100% Quota Percentage. It was created last 04.04.2008. We did not delete the Old Quota Arrangement with the old Vendor as this was set to expire on the same date 04.04.2008.

Now we have the system proposing to the old Vendor upon executing the Quota Heuristics with warning Message "Order 3350151/10 with source (Old Vendor) created late on 09.06.2008 01:18:59; desired date 28.03.2008 00:16:03".

May I know what this warning Message means?

Any comment is welcome!

Thanks and Best Regards,

    It looks like your required date for the material in question is to have it ordered on 28.03.2008 due to leadtime scheduling, therefore this will fall into the validity dates of your old scheduling agreement. However, for some reason when rescheduling the order to meet actual dates (09.06.2008) it does not change the vendor to the new one but maintains the valid vendor for the required shipment date rather than the new vendor for the rescheduled date.
