Source List and validity period

Hi,

I have created a inforecord for a material, vendor and Purch. org. and have set a validity period for info record as wel as pricing . However when i go to ME01 and say generate source list, system asks me yo enter a validity period.

If i give a period other than the one given in inforecord, system creates the source list for this new validity period and doesnot consider the info record validity period. Why?

    HI,

    Inforecord is a Material and Vendor combination record in the system . And the validity perios which we give is for the conditions for example discount can vary and hence we give validity period.

    Source List is Many vendors single material combination and the validity period given here is with respect to procurement. Like till when the materials is to be procured from this vendor. after the validity the system will not allow you to procure this material from this vendor.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Kiran

    Hi Prashant,

    In Info record we maintain the vendor & material data- in this we give validity for the price ur maintaining for that material & vendor.

    In source list we maintain the no of vendors who can supply that material- nd here we specify the particular period for a vendor that u have to procure material from that vendor up to the specified vendor.

    Ok, i think it is clear. Further doubts keep postings threads

    Regards
