SRM 7.0 Duplicate Procurement Problem ( Source_rel_ind set to X again )

Hi All,

We are on SRM 7.0 and ECC 5.0 and we use classic scenario. We have a problem that is causing the shopping cart to reappear in the sourcing cockpit which is causing the duplicate procurement.

Upon awarding the quote, the workflow creates a PO in the backend and clean_reqreq_up and BBP_GETSTATUS_2 are scheduled to run every 5 minutes. In some rare cases the shopping cart is reappearing in the sourcing cockpit even though it was alrelady procured and PO has been created in the backend. Any idea what is causing it.

appreciate your help.

    The two reports, if scheduled in jobs, have been known to not work as expected in some rare cases. For those of your requirements re-appearing in the sourcing cockpit, run the reports manually and see if the issue is rectified. If so, the issue lies in the jobs running those reports. If not, the issue is somewhere else, likely more specific to those SC items / POs.

    PO created shopping carts should not ventured to cockpit again .

    if your PO has been deleted again and sc venture cockpit again.

    so try to recreate the problem in development and escalate to SAP via OSS message.

    There are changes are there check if PO qty changes and not mismatched in the sc . sc comes to cockpit by get status job.

    so you need to what is causing the problem and report to SAP.

      Note 1380921 - BID: Sourcing indicator is not cleared when bid is closed

      When an RFx for which a PO exists gets closed, the system returns the related shopping cart item to the Sourcing Cockpit, even though there is no open quantity. After the BBP_GET_STATUS_2 job runs, the item is removed from Sourcing Cockpit automatically.

      Other terms

      Sourcing indicator, bid invitation.

      Reason and Prerequisites

      Program Error.


      Implement the attached correction instructions or apply the relevant Support Package.

      The relevant items will then no longer go to Sourcing Cockpit.

      it helps others . ok. it comes in SRM 700 SP 09
