Configuring purchase requisition for order type kb?

When a purchase requisition gets created from a DEMO sales order (type KB), if there are 2 line items on the sales order with the same material, when the req gets created, it combines the line items into 1 on the requisition. For example:

Sales Order

line one - material cab-a qty 10

line two - material cab-a qty 10

On the requisition it combines these into 1 line of 20. So, the PO gets created the same way. How to we stop this behavior?

  • Why do you enter two separate lines in the order and why does it have to be separate in PO?

    Please don't use all caps (it represents shouting) and chose a descriptive title. This question is about the line combination (in 3rd party order?), not about type KB in general. Also it's not "demo", it's "consignment fill-up" in standard.

    I'm new to this forum. In our system it's known as a "DEMO" order.

    It is only on these types of orders that we have this problem. When the order type is "KB" and the item category is "KBN".

    Do you know of a solution to our problem, or did you just want to point out everything I did wrong in my post?

    Well, if this is the only item category / order type where this happens then wouldn't it be reasonable to suspect some kind of custom code is involved?

    In this case since even the order type description is not standard who knows what else could have been modified in your system? In general, I feel it's not a good idea to modify standard types. If there is a need to make changes, create a custom type. In this case if anything goes wrong at least you'll be able to do a quick test with everything standard to find whether it's how SAP works in general or not.

    Also if the standard configuration was preserved then you would've had a reason to contact SAP support and ask them why the same process works differently for different item categories. From the technical standpoint, I don't see any requirement to combine the lines and, as you said, they're not combined in a regular 3rd party process. This would be a rather strange design.

    We don't use consignment, so I can't check in our system. But my money would be on a bug or some user exit in your system. There is transaction ANST that can help with research.
