Block Purchasing Company Code wise

Hi MM Experts,

My client needs to block the users from CREATING/SAVING a Purchase Order for a perticular Vendor and for a perticular Company Code. But it should allow to create Purchase Orders for the same Vendor for another company code. Basically the block is compnay specific.

Is there a config setting for this.

Cheers

Deepal

    Hi Deepal,

    Agree with Nick

    Make sure you don't have a central purchasing org for your client, before using MK05.

    Else you could block a centrl pur org, potentially impacting several company.code

    You can use master data tx MK05 to block a vendor per Purchasing Org.

    I don't think there's a config option for your requirement (and would you really want to block individual vendors in config ??).

    Regards,

    Nick

      Hi Nick,

      Thanks for the reply.

      Not really MK05, I can use XK05 to block Vendors Company code wise. But its a posting block which comes in to effect in GR stage. I want a block at PO Raising stage to prevent users from raising a PO s.

      Cheers

    Hi

    Vendor can be blocked in three ways.

    1. XK05 - Block Vendor at Purchase organisation and company code level

    2. ME02 - Block Vendor for the particular material

    3. Quality reasons.

    Try to use XK05 and block the vendor at Purchase organisation and company code level. So that you can not use the vendor any more.

    Thanks

    Regards,

    Raman

    • you dont purchase directly by company code, it is indirect via plants, as the plants are linked to the company.

      Assuming you have one purchasing org for all companies

      you can only block purchasing at a certain vendor for a certain company by creating a source list for all materials you buy from this vendor and setting the block indicator in the source list.

      if you dont have material masters, then you cannot restrict creating purchase orders at vendor level.
