Vendor Requirements


Please let me know how can we identify the requirements for a vendor in MD04 screen. In collective access I see an option for vendor and it shows the material for vendors, please let me know that how can all the requirements can be taken into single PO.

    Check with the Transaction ME59 where PR is not assigned to Vendor & ME58 where PR is Assigned to vendor.,

    1.Select the desired vendor as input parameter,

    2.System will list down Unassign & Assigned PR, Select the vedor & process to create the PO

    3.System will take all the PR relevent to single vendor in a PO.

      Could you provide more inputs on this please because when I go into collective access in MD04 wrt a vendor "XX", I see many different materials but when I try to create a PO I see only requisition of one material. In ME21N I went into the option 'change breakdown' where I selected the vendor option, so the requisition automatically poped up but I didnt enter vendor name.

      In ME57 I enter the vendor as an input and I see 7 requisistions, please let me know how can we select all the requisitions in one shot into a PO for specific vendor.

      Thanks for your time!!!!!

    Posted on Apr 15, 2011 at 01:54 AM can easily get the PR list of these 50 materials of one vendor by PR report ME5A of sap.

    2.copy these PR number and collective transfer into PO under ME21N.

    • I think you know that these 50 materials have to be procured from one vendor, but SAP does not know this,

      Hence you cannot see the 50 requisition in ME57 if you use the vendor number as selection criteria.

      This means that you have no source assignment for all the requisitions. And no you do not need to have fixed vendor for all of them. ME57 is the transaction to assign the vendor, source can be a contract, info records, source list...

      Of course you have to use a selection that enables SAP to find all 50. Vendor number is certainly not the right selection to start with.

      What do the materials have in common? the purchasing group? the MRP controller?

      Use this to select the requisitions, then do the source assignment for all requisitions that do not yet have a source.

      After this is done, you create a PO per Assignment, which is the vendor number, And you will then find all 50 requisitions to this one vendor in the document overview of PO creation screen.
