How to avoid info record when adding vendor in purch tab of maint. order

Hi Guys,

My requierment is when adding teh component to maintenance order I need to provide the vendor number as well , but when I try to enter the vendor number for the material it says "No info record maintain for the material and vendor" I understand the error but our client doen't maintain info record and they dont want to maintain too, when they create purchase requistion directly from ME51N it doesn't show this error only when we create purchase requistion thru maintenance order it is asking for info record when we are adding vendor otherwise no issues.

Could anyone knows how to remove that check i.e when we add vendor number it shouldn't ask for info record. Whether it is PM config or MM config?? Please let me knwo what to do on this., Thanks.

    Dear Praveen,

    First i will tell you bussiness process, when you creating PR means it is external document, means you have to specify which material and which vendor then system automatically decide and create PR.

    info record is nothing but combination of Vendor and Material,so when you want to rise PR system automatically checks Vendor,if you maintained Vendor system will give message copyied data from info record.

    i think we canot avoid this error

    Hope this may helps you

      Prem thanks for your immediate response. You meant to say that in case we need to provide vendor during automatic creation PR thru maintenance order we should maintain info record (nothing but vendor and material combination). In case if we are not maintaining it then we cannot enter vendor number in automatic creation of PR.

      So only way is they have to mention vendor during teh PO, but my client has workflow implemented in PR and PO so the superviosr won't approve the PR until he knows whom they are buying from in that case only solution is we need to maintain info record for the material and vendor combination.,

      We shud have some config to control this as when we cut manual PR thru ME51N it is not asking teh infor record when adding teh vendor number. So they question me why it is happening in differnt way when we cut PR thru Maintenance order.

      Thi is my thought the account assignment is "F" when we cut PR thru maintenance order so I thought it is osmething to do with that.

      Anyway Thanks for your info as I need someone to discuss as here in my project no ones knwo SAP.
