    Hi

    If you activate this tick in the material master then you need to maintain the source list for such material.System will pop up the message that source list is to be maintained .

      The Source list requirement field in the purchasing data of the material master record indicates whether a source list requirement exists for a material.

      If a source list requirement has been defined for a plant, you must maintain the source list for each material in the plant in ME01 before a material can be procured for the plant. Else you will get an error Source list not maintained despite of source list requirement.
