Plant in PO

Hi All,

When I am trying to create a PO I have set up all the basic settings for the plant and copied from a standard plant and also maintianed the Info record, but when I create a PO the system is not pulling the plant and when I specify the plant manually the system is deleting the plant and asking for plant again no matter how many times I give the plant and when I tired to drop the menu(F4) the system is saying no values maintained.

Can anyone suggest a way out

Regards

shane

      .if you want procure the variant matieral than setting should be as below

      You can use variant configuration for purchasing materials. This means that the material is procured externally, rather than produced in-house.

      You can create and change the configuration of configurable materials in the following purchasing documents: purchase requisitions, requests for quotation, purchase orders, and outline agreements.

      Subcontracting items and archiving of characteristic values are not supported.

      If no configuration exists of a configurable material, you can create the configuration in the purchasing document. This may be necessary if, for example, you want to order a configurable material without a reference to a sales order.

      If the configuration of the configurable material has been copied from a sales order or the material master, you can change it in the purchasing document. This may be necessary if the material cannot be supplied in the selected configuration, and has to be adjusted to match the quotation. In this case, the price is recalculated.

      If you change the configuration of a material in the purchasing document, this does not change the original configuration in the sales order or material master.

      If you make subsequent changes in the sales order or material master, these do not affect the configuration in the purchasing document.

      Procedure (Example for a Purchase Requisition)

      Create a sales order containing a configurable material that is procured externally. The material need not have a BOM. However, the material must have a configuration profile with an assignment to a class. The characteristics of the class are used to describe the material.

      Your externally procured material may be part of a BOM. Depending on the BOM explosion settings in the configuration profile, the material may be configured either independently or according to the characteristic values assigned to the BOM header material.

      A purchase requisition can be generated either in the sales order itself or as a result of a material requirements planning (MRP) run. The purchase requisition contains the characteristic values that were assigned to the material in the sales order.

      The purchase requisition is converted to a purchase order. The purchase order contains the characteristic values that were assigned to the material in the sales order.

      see SAP help

      If a material is configurable, you can:

      Select one or more alternatives, even though they are represented by only one configurable material

      Configure the BOM and routing of the material Maintain dependencies for BOM items and operations, so that they are only selected for certain variants

      Maintain a Configuration Profile with a class assignment for the material, where you define central settings for the configurable object

      Prerequisites

      Before you can configure a material, the material master record must have the Material is configurable indicator selected in its Basic data.

      You can create a material using a material type that has the configurable indicator defined in Customizing. This means that all materials created with this material type are configurable. In the standard system, material type KMAT is defined for this purpose.

      You can define individual materials of other material types as configurable. To do this, set the Material is configurable indicator in the Basic data of the material master record.

      If you want to configure a material, you must create it with a material type that has the Classification view defined as allowed in Customizing. Otherwise, the

    Did you assign the plant to the company code? tcode OX18

    and the Purchasing org needs to be assigned to the company code or plant - tcode OX01 or OX17

    this assignment needs to be there to create the PO.

      In this case there can be two possibilites

      1) If you don;t have anough authorization

      2) some one have activated the user exit.

      Ask ABAPer to debug for you so you know exaclty what is happening.

    Or when you see the error that time enter SU53 in command menu and hit enter

    if should give you the authorization missing object if this is related to authorization.
