Asking Account Assignment Category for Direct Materials


ECS Scenario with PPS, ECC EHP4, SRM7.0.

The system is giving error as 'account assignment category is missing' for 'direct materials'. We have same problem while creating SC in SRM also and for PDP als.

Items with account assignment are working perfecly fine for both SC and PDP, for same product category.

For PDP: System did not give any error at PR stage, but if see log in SLG1 in SRM, we see that, it did not transfer to SRM as 'account assignment category' is missing.. moreover, If we create a standard PO item, for the same material group (without reference to PR) it is pefectly working. GR, IR everything is fine in ECC... So there should not be any problem in ECC account assignment(?).

We have not implimented any BADI. Just used the standard, as it is... Product category, location, storage location are maintained in PPOMA_BBP. Accounting system for vendor is also maintained...

What could be other possiblities? kindly help.

    Have you defined the "Account Assignment Categories" in SRM IMG? It is mapping the account assignment categories between ECC and SRM.

    Note 1293572 - Account assignment is cleared in case of direct material

    When a material in purchase order is ordered as direct material, then default account assignement is cleared even though the customizing for accounting is maintained for the direct material in case of government procurement.

    CHECK IT UP it talks about PPS scenario

    • hi

      Can you create sc see account assignment folder though ypu order as direct material in PPS scenario?

      please check BBP_PDIGP-subtype =dp and external requirement.

      SAP has designed like that for PPS scenario

      Direct materials with account assignment

      check with SAP, Learn that SRM not creates a shopping cart for direct materials for the purchase requests.

      since they are throwing explicitly error message

      'account assignment category is missing' for 'direct materials'
