Central Contract release in ME35K

In SRM a central contract was created and then distributed to SAP ERP ECC 6.0 Backend.

In backend system a release strategy exists for the distributed contract.

When trying to release this contract with ME35K the contract will not be found.

Checking the table EKKO the contract is there and the release strategy is correct.

Debugging transaction ME35K we found that the following statement deletes the distributed contract.

*- Check for EhP4-Switch and Central Contract

IF cl_ops_switch_check=>mm_sfws_p2pse( ) = 'X'.

DELETE xekko WHERE bstyp EQ 'K'

AND statu EQ 'K'.

The question is if there is a switch which needs to be activated or deactivated that the contract can be released by ME35K?

The switch should be: MM_SFWS_P2PSE

Or is it SAP standard that distributed central contracts cannot be released in ERP backend with ME35K?

Thanks in advance.

Manjunath and Reagan

    Are the contract originated in SRM ?

    In CCTR contract, all approval process happened in SRM web front itself.

    Do you want to make approval process again in ECC ?

    After approval of CCTR , the contract ventured from SRM to ECC and this contract is available as source of supply for SRm as well as ECC.

    Hi Manjunath,

    For Central contracts the approval happens in SRM after which it is available in ERP. The distributed contract does not necessarily have the release procedure in ERP.
