    • Hi rr,

      Please follow the path to check the document type of your PR, as per your screen shot you are selecting NB Standard so you need to check the Field Selection group -

      SPRO>IMG>Materials Management>Purchasing>Purchase Requisition>Define Screen Layout at Document Level

      Click on details push button and check your configuration for Basic Data, Item & Enjoy Field.

    First of all, try to use the subject effectively. Don't type the entire text over there. Secondly, coming to your question, you have not explained the issue in detail. Check whether OSS note 891978 is related to your issue. Else, in configuration for PR, there is one menu path for Define Screen Layout where you check for ME51N what is set under Basic data, item.

    Upon PR creation- system asking to enter material with account assignment category!

    You should know- why you are creating PR and what data requires to create a PR. If your are creating 1st PR-Do you follow or refer user guide on how to create a PR!

    During PR creation - you need to know

    1-What document type to select

    2- Enter material number or if no material number required-what account assignment category required(some time material number with account assignment category needed based on material type nature)

    3-plant and purchasing group details

    4-Item category needs or not

    Creating PR with material group/ without material number that means you are creating consumption PR.

    For consumption PR you need not to maintain any material master just give account assignment ( A, F, K etc), so that you can create PR without material.

    That means your going with the Direct consumption which comes under P&L statement.
