    • Hi Ashok,

      Please have a look at SAP help about individual PO in Sales, I think it's easy to understand how to set it:

      http://help.sap.com/saphelp_47x200/helpdata/en/dd/5601fb545a11d1a7020000e829fd11/frameset.htm

      SO (item category TAB) > creates PR automatically - so, it's not clear to me why do you want to create PO directly (w/o PR).

      It's important that 'E' works in MTO environment. If you are in MTS you cannot use this since your sales orders don't have special stock (you cannot assign special stock to your sales orders).

      Check 'startegy group' field of your material (FG that is on your SO and that is the same you want to procure from sc vendor) in MM03 (MRP3) - in case of 10, 11, 40 (e.g.) you are in MTS environment...

    As Szommer mentioned, the combination of item category L and account assignment E is only possible in an MTO environment.

    If you need to drive this scenario literally from a purchasing standpoint (or with SD in which the schedule line category will automatically create a PR with L & E combination ), then you can use the combination of account assignment 'M' and item category 'L'.
