Central Contract Distribution - line items creates many contract in the BE

Hi SRM Gurus,

We are in SRM 7 ECC 6 Ehp 4 PPS. Ext Classic.

First of all, CCTR - Central Contract can't be distributed as per SAP for PPS impl.

But we have a workaround.

We made snote 1354971 read with 1423994 implemented. Made the process work.

Means Assign distribution on the item level was enabled and Distribution reached BE.

But when we have multiple line items in the Central Contract, and we assign distribution, it creates one contract per line item in the Backend which is really absurd. Which means if you have 100 line items, its creating 100 contracts. When we do the call-off against this central contract, we have multiple contracts.

Gurus, Can you guys throw some light on this entire issue.

with regards,

    We are having nearly exactly your scenario and CCTR works fine with 1 distributed contract containing multiple items. Check if all the items are distributed to the same purchasing org and location. If all is the same, debug BBP_PD_CTR_TRANSFER with your SRM contract GUID to see when and how multiple contracts get created in ECC.
