Purchase order creation - Account assignment group C (Sales Order)

Hello Gurus

During the purchase order creation in Me21N, account assignment category C (sales order) is available. In which scenario we will use it. When I assign C system is asking for a GL account. Why system needs a GL account, and how the posting will be at the time of goods receipt. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Hi,

    Creation of Purchase Order with t.code: ME21N with account assignment category C (sales order) is used for Time and Material Expenses with third party scenario and you need to enter sales order number and respective G/L account . In this scenario 1st a sales order is created with a material( material created DIEN material type) & then purchase order created with respect to sales order.

    Here you provide service to your customer and this service you procure from your vendor, you just play middle role for providing and getting service.Standard DIEN material type designed for Sales usage only, so you create sales order for service material.Service master is used to get service from vendor with item category D with proper account assignment category as C

    Example:

    Material type DIEN is used for when you offer "SERVICE" to your customer.( The steps are (VA01,VF01,VF04,F-28), If u used HR module( you can used with sales order with t.codes are: CAT2,CATS_APPR_LITE,CAT7,PR05,PRRW,PRFI)

    Service Master records(AC01)ESM is used when you procure "SERVICE" from your vendor.( Steps are: ME21N with Item Cat. "D" with Acc. Ass. Cat. "C", ML81N,MIRO & F-53).
