intercompany code and Standard PO process between different Company Codes

We have and intercompany STO process with billing and IV in place between two company codes (A and B), however there is a third company code (C) that is not under this STO process but in a normal purchase order and Sales order. Now the Company Code C wants to place and PO order to company code A but we are getting and error saying

"" No delivery type defined for supplying plant MX01 and document type NB

Message No. 06694

In the case of an inter-company-code stock transfer (a transfer of stock from one company code to another), a delivery type must be defined to allow initiation of the shipping process.

Procedure

Contact your system administrator.
The latter can maintain the delivery type using the Implementation Guide (IMG):
Set up stock transport order"

Since this is not a Intercompany STO what we should do in that case?

Your help will be really appreciated. Please Advice

    Hi Olivier,

    Please check you have maintained the shipping data and some of the configuration for STO between Plant A & Plant C!

    Thanks,

    • Yes Francisco,

      I understand this is why I told you to check the basic configuration, may be in your vendor plant is assigned for the supplying plant!

      Thanks.,

    Hi Francisco,

    If you don't want to have a stock trsp flow between A and C, make sure you use a vendor number which is not linked to the delivering plant (MX01). This essentially means that you can't use the same vendor number for the flow A to B (STO) as for A to C (PO + SO).

    • Hi Rafael

      Yes, that is what we have discovered, however the finance area does not want to have to different vendor numbers, is there any other way to handle it?

      Thanks for your advice

    Hi Francisco,

    You may tell the accounting people that several vendor numbers for one vendor is very common thing in SAP, since e.g. vendors normally have several addresses, while SAP has only one address per vendor number. You can link different vendor numbers between them using business partner hierarchy or partner functions.

    As to your question, I am pretty much sure that the assignment of the vendor to a plant is the only flag that tells SAP it should be a stock trsp order. You may find the place in the standard program which reads EKKO and clean the plant field there (modification or enhancement), but then you are really on a very thin ice! I would never recommend such option.
