MRP area and transactional data

130 Views

Hi,

I have a question regarding MRP areas and transaction data in APO 4.1. We've created one storage location MRP area and plant MRP area in R/3. This has been cif'ed to APO and we now have the product masters for the storage location MRP area (location type 1007) and the plant MRP area (location type 1002) in APO.

We've also created an integration model for transaction data (e.g. sales orders). The sales order is created for the storage location MRP area and can be displayed via MD04 in R/3 for the right MRP area (in this case storage location MRP area). But this is not the case in APO (/SAPAPO/RRP3 - product view). The sales order in APO is not shown in the storage location MRP area but in the plant MRP area, which is not correct.

According to the help.sap.com following prerequisites must be fulfilled:

Integration of Storage Location MRP Areas

Integration of Transaction Data from SAP R/3 to SAP APO

In SAP R/3, transaction data is assigned uniquely to one plant and one storage location. In SAP APO, plant and storage location together define a specific location. The transaction data for a product is automatically transferred to the corresponding location if the following prerequisites are fulfilled:

· The product is created in the location

· If the location is a storage location MRP area, the storage location MRP area must be integrated with SAP APO

If these prerequisites are not fulfilled, the transaction data is automatically transferred to the plant location.

Integration of Transaction Data from SAP APO to SAP R/3

In order that you can transfer orders with a receipt in a storage location MRP area from SAP APO to SAP R/3, you need to have created distribution definitions at plant level in SAP APO in Customizing for Integration.

We followed the recommendations. But it is not working. Does anyone have a clue?

Best regards
