Multiple Purchase Requisitions for a Sale Order document.

Hello SAP Gurus,

As evident from the headline we have a requirement in which we would need to get multiple PR documents to be generated against one single SO ( based on the Line Item details of SO ).

I tried searching over SCN , found below link but in this solution has not been mentioned properly.

https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/1742996

Say if we have 2 line items in one SO , then 2 PRs should be generated, based on Vendor - VBKD-IHREZ of SO.

I was checking with below EXIT,

User exit MV45AFZB FORM USEREXIT_MOVE_FIELD_TO_ME_REQ

Can anyone suggest if the above EXIT could be used for achieving this ?( I don't feel this will do the purpose ) or is there any other EXIT for achieving this ? or this could be achieved using SPRO configurations ?

Helpful suggestions much appreciated.

Thanks,

Sijin

    Hello Jignesh,

    Considering SO->PR->PO process flow,

    Finally we had to proceed with the approach you have suggested.

    That is rather that achieving PR split at SO->PR level, instead lets split POs at PR->PO level ( i.e. go one level further ).

    But as you mentioned,

    "Can you not convert one Purchase Requisition into multiple Purchase Orders based supplying Vendors"

    In our case the split logic is Custom one which need to incorporated at ME59N ( ME59N does the PR-PO generation job ).

    Very thanks for all your helpful suggestions, I would like to mark Jignesh's approach as correct one but that option is not coming since its a Comment by him.

    Thanks,

    Sijin

    Hi Sijin, I have double checked with developer for third party. Unfortunately, there is no real solution for this issue and this is a missing functionality. If there are several purchase requisition items which have the same sales order as origin there is a rule that they all must have the same purchase requisition number BANFN. If we change this, several functional design patterns would no longer work. Sorry for not being able to provide you with useful information here.

    • Hi Tao,

      First very thanks for your response.

      Actually Functional People ( SD and MM ) where expecting a functionality something like which we have for Delivery split in SD, but in this case for PR.

      So as per your comments it seems its not possible to generate multiple PRs during the creation of a Sale Order.

      Thanks,

      Sijin

    Hello Sijin,

    What's the business reason to have two purchase requisition instead of a single one? As you may know already, once the purchase requisition is created it can be turned into several purchase orders.

    Best regards,

    Fortian
