PI Partner is blank in PO created from PR (MD04)


PI Partner function is not working when creating a Purchase Order with ref to a Purchase Requisition. Partner functions maintained in the vendor master are VN and PI. PI is not appearing in the PO header partner tab when created with reference to PR from originating transaction MD04.

I checked to be sure the Purchase Org is assigned to the Company Code. Configuration for partners / partner schemas and their assignments are complete. We have been using SAP for two years with no issues in the standard vendor partner use. This issue only came up when we needed to have a PI Partner different from the VN Partner.

I see that search at a higher level is available in configuration u201CMaterial management >Purchasing >Partner Determination >Partner Settings in Purchasing Documents >Define Partner Schemas and I checked configuration in the same path to Assign Partner Schemas to Document Types.u201D I have searched notes and forums and it appears this correction could lead to a problem only if there are multiple partners for one vendor. I am not sure if 'search at a higher level' will correct the problem. Thanks in advance for your help.
