"WRK" attribute in PPOMA_BBP

Hi guys,

The client requires to add 3 more attributes to the "Attributes" tab in PPOMA_BBP, that already exist in the structure, but can not be modified. The 3 attributes are WRK, PURCH_GRP and PURCH_ORG.

I tried to follow the wiki

https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/SRM/Organizational+Model

And other posts, but no conclusion found.

I also tried to modify manually the attributes using OOATTRCUST, but it's not possible since they are set as "Can't chng'.

How can I solve this issue ?

Kind regards,

Marius

    Hi Marius,

    Could you please provide screenshots about what would you like to change exactly and where?

    Please check also the following SAP Help page about the attributes in SRM:

    https://help.sap.com/doc/saphelp_srm70/7.0/en-US/84/a7e3389870c05ce10000000a114084/content.htm?no_cache=true

    WRK - You define this attribute using tab card Extended attributes.

    PURCH_GRP - You define an organizational unit as purchasing group on the Function tab.

    PURCH_ORG - You define an organizational unit as purchasing organization on the Function tab.

    Best regards,

    Daniel

    Hello Marius,

    what is the business need to manually manage in 'Attributes' tab Plant, Purchasing Group and Purchasing Organization?

    As written by Daniel, for Plant, you can do it through "Locations" in 'Extended Attributes' tab.

    Regarding Purch. Group and Org., those data are linked to Product Categories, not to Users.

    Nevertheless, for any user from the Organization Structure (PPOSA_BBP), if he is assigned to an Organizational Unit being under a Purchasing Organization, this user will inherite this Purch. Org. (see in 'Attrib. Inheritance' for Position occupied by the User).

    Regards.

    Laurent.

    • Hi Laurent,

      So ... When creating a SC the item is added free text, limit or from catalog (T-Rex). After adding the obligatory info, you can change Purchase Org, Purch Group , Company Code and Location which are based on PPOMA_BBP configs. There is no connection to Product Category.
      What the client needs is to filter the values for these fields, based on the same configuration. If you have 5 company codes added in PPOMA_BBP to a user, the user can only see / use those 5. Similarly they need to do it for the other 3 fields.
      Is there a way to achieve this ?

      I managed to add a new custom field (as a test) and tried to use it, but I can't manage to add the "Source System" column to it, evef if it is copied from an attribute that already has this column active/modifiable.

      Kind regards,

      Marius

    Hello,

    currently, what do you have in fields Purch. Org, Purch. Group and Location/Plant at UI level?

    Are they populated or not?

    Regards.

    Laurent.
