Purchase Requests and Orders - Purchase Requests (Manual) account assignment


Dear SAP Experts,

I was looking into the new functionality Create Purchase Requests (Manual) in SAP ByDesign and I spend some time looking into the Account Assignment on this new functionality.

Unfortuly I could not find it, which brought me over to the process (looking at the system behaviour on this document on a creation of a Purchase Order and so one).

My understanding is: for this new functionality, there are two options:

1 - It is valid only for stock products ( account assignment defined on the product ID)

2 - The buyer should know or contact the requester to add this information on the creation of the purchase order

My case I would like to create an indirect Purchase Request and Purchasing Order, which brings me to option 2.

Note: On the Shopping Cart and also on the creation of a Purchase Request from the Project, the Account Assignment is mandatory.

Someone know why the accounting assignment is not available on this new functionality at the Purchase Requests (Manual)?

Thank you,

Pedro Muller
