requirements not passing for third party orders

Hi...I have a problem that I am hopeful there is an answer to. On the SD side we have third party orders that when entered automatically create purchase requisitions. Previously, those requirements were passed through and were visible in MD04.

We are currently in the process of implementing an external planning system (not APO), however, the users made the decision that the 3rd party orders would not be planned or facilitated in the new system. So as I set up the MRP type for external planning I have run into a problem. For some reason I can get all requirements to show in md04 except the third party orders. Standard OR's transfer, and I can see all other details, but the requriement for the third party order will not. the requirements did transfer prior to the change of the MRP type. On the order this has not impacted the schedule line category or the requirement type, so I don't see any reason from that side why they wouldn't transfer.

Any direction on this would be appreciated.

    are those orders not confirmed and Fix date Quantity flag is on?

    then those oders will not come to the MD04 (this is standard behaviour)

    if you want them to be visible in Md04 then remove the fix date qty indicator (on schedule line tab of sales order)

    • No, the problem is not that requisition isn't created. The problem is that the information is not being displayed in the planning screens. It creates the purchase requisition but you cannot see it in any of the MRP screens. The problem is the visibility in screens like MD04. It is true, that if the PR is created automatically then a requirement had to be transferred, but I also need to be able to see that requirement. Thanks for clarifying.

    As is the way of it, as soon as I post the question I figure out the answer. Our programmers had hardcoded something around the MRP type that shouldn't have been...the new MRP type wasn't included in their hardcoding. Thanks
