PO in held status with price zero


Hi Gurus,

Here is an interesting challenge and perhaps a learning curve for us , as in my project we are facing a strange issue with Automatic PO creation from SC !

The SC is created by choosing an item having product category , vendor , price and contract combination from MDM catalog and is fully approved. On approval the Automatic PO is created without going to Sourcing cockpit. (with the Sourcing setting).

But surprisingly the PO is with ZERO value and goes in held status !! On clicking the Check button , following is the error message which crops up :

Enter the price or set the 'Invoice Expected' indicator (Item 1)

The invoice expected indicator is already set as observed in the Item data -> Follow-on-documents tab of PO.

This behavior is happening only for the new company code configured with new currency both in R/3 and SRM system, however all other company codes are currently working fine with Automatic PO process. So what exactly is missing for this company code ?

And interestingly if the SC(without MDM) -> Sourcing cockpit -> PO process is carried out the PO is in Ordered status without any errors !

We are in ECC 6.0, SRM 5.0 and MDM Catalogue 5.5 environment.

Kindly give your suggestions , if any further questions please revert back.

Thanks and Regards,

Vikas Mehta
