I have done the following:

1)Create Material Master Record for MRP

2)Forecast consumption

3) MRP Run

4)Print MRP List

But when trying to do step 6- MRP list convert PReq into PO

I run transaction MD06, select the item but dont see any purch reqs to convert to a po, how is this possible?

Does anyone know the step by step logic to convert a purch req into a po from an mrp list (MD06)

    When you go into MD06/04...

    you have to click on the lens button given at the starting of the line item which shows your PReQ...

    then system taken you to the new dialog box...

    here, you have to click on convert to PO...

    and save...

    after this you'll be able to see the PO not PReq..

    • Depending on the parameters of your MRP job or the configuration behind the MRP group if used in the material master either a planned order or a purchase requisition will be created. As said above, MD06 is a collective list. Choose the material you wish to order and click the eyeglasses button.

      If the material needs to be purchase or restocked you will see PlOrd - Planned order or PurRqs - Purchase requisition in the MRP element column.

      In the planned order or requsition number will be in the MRP element data column. Double-click this number and you will get a pop-up box. If the item is a planned order you will see several buttons, but you will want to click the one that says "-> Pur.req.". This will convert the planned order into a requisition which you can process into a purchase order in many ways (e.g. ME21, ME21N, ME57, etc.).

      If it is a requisition you will see a button "-> Purchase Order". Click that button to begin the conversion of the requisition into a purchase order.

    The output of MD06 is the collective list. It contains no individual MRP elements, it only contains a listing of part number/plants that meet the selection criteria. From here, you must select one or more item and branch to MD05, (icon glasses selected mrp lists), which is the detailed MRP list for each part number. In this display, then, if there are any purchase requisitions, you can see them, and convert to purchase orders as necessary. Not every material will have purchase reqs, you will have to search until you find one.

    When you are seeing the "stock statistics" popup, that means that the element you clicked on was the stock element. You must click on a purchase req element to get the opportunity to convert from purchase req to purchase order.

    Best Regards,
