Default PO type for conversion of Subcontracting PRs.

Hello Friends,

I am exploring the possibility of choosing a different Purchase Order Type (ZSB), While converting the Purchase Requisitions (L) created by MRP into Purchase Order. PRs are being created with item category L and the subcontracting Vendor is assigned for the PR.

While converting PRs from MD04 screen and ME58 and also ME59N system chooses the standard PO which is NB which is not used for subcontracting procurement (with item category L). It should choose Order type NB for normal procurement proposals other than subcontracting.

Is there anyway we can default the right order type ZSB for converting subcontracting PR to PO.

Material Master data details:

Procurement Type : F

Special Procurement :30

Planning Strategy Group: 40 (Planning with final assembly, Make to Stock)

    GO to SPRO> Material management> Purchasing> Purchase order> Define order type.

    In that select the order type and assign the purchase requestion to that particular order type.

    This will help u.
