How do you allow mulitple vendor material numbers on one Pinfo?

Is there a way to allow a Purchasing info record to have 2 vendor material numbers for the same item? The vendor has different material numbers for the same item because it is delivered to different countries. They are using the material number to help differentiate where the material is being sent. We have 2 different locations that use the same material and we are not able to have the Pinfo used by both since there is only one vendor material number on there - we have made the vendor material number required to ensure it is included on the purchase order.

    There is no way for a second vendor material number.

    There is only 1 field IDNLF and this is at general level, hence valid for all organizations in your system.

    If your vendor material number is short enough then you may enter both numbers into the one field separated by a slash /

    If your vendor has himself a computer system then he may not even need to this information from you. You hit an exception, but you can't in general harmonize your system with all IT systems of your vendors and customers.

    You can also enter the vendor material number into a long text instead of the the desired field. IT probably does not matter for your vendor from where it is taken. The maintenance in IDNLF only helps you as you can search by vendor material number to find your own material number.
