sap not following its own rules

i made a vendor recon account and assigned a sort key 010 to it. then i created a vendor master record and in that also i gave sort key as 010. now i made a po then grn then miro.

as a result of simulation in miro i got an entry vendor recon account cr with no po no. in purchasing doc column and gr/ir debit with po no. being displayed.

when i did fbl1n for this vendor account i didnot get anything in assignment field while it was expected that po no should be reflected in assignment field as sort key assigned to this vendor master record was 010

why is this happening SAP is not following its own rule that what ever is given in sort key what we see in assignment field

please explain with some solid proof

    The system uses a standard sort sequence for displaying line items. Among other things, it sorts the items according to the content of the Allocation field. This field can be filled either manually or automatically (by the system) when a document line item is entered.

    For this purpose, the system requires rules that determine which information is to be taken from the document header or from the document line item and placed in the field. The rules can be stored in the master record of an account which enables you to determine the standard sort sequence on an account-specific basis.

    You have to define the rules for the layout of the assignment number field in the Implementation Guide (IMG) under Determine Standard Sorting for Line Items.

    Hope you understand the concept.

      Sort key is not mandatory.

      For your question the simple answer is no.

      Every software has got its on limitaions and as a consultant you should know the limitations and should think on how to bridge the GAP.

      Please go through the sap doucmentation on this matter. you can also search service market place for BSEG-ZUONR and how it gets filled.
