Link Purchase request -> Purchase order FOR CONSIGNMENT

Gurus,

I have a strange case. MRP generates a PR. PR is assigned a vendor through consignment info-record number through ME57. After saving assignment it turns out that this PR doesn't have K as item category. When creating PO, system actually complains that linkage between PR and PO type has no been done for consignment. As a matter of fact it has been defined but this purchase requisition can't be converted into purchase order unless item category K is MANUALLY added in PR. Then conversion to PO is no problem.

My question is : When PR is being assigned by mean of a consignment info-record through ME57, i would expect that item category K is updated in PR so it can be converted directly, isn't it like that ?

Thanks for your answers,

Olivier

    Hi,

    Go to MM02 for the material in MRP 2 view, maintain Special procurement as 10 i.e. Consignment.

    Then run MRP and check the PRs.

    Hi

    Your PR Document should have Allowed item categories "K" and you PO documents should be linked to PR in PO document type "Link purchase requisition - document type"

    for you Question: it is not like that if you give K and Craete PO Po will pick Price automaticaly not the revers caes.
