    Hi,

    Is it giving the message only for this PO Document Type. If yes, then :

    Check the Setting of Account Assignment Category in PO Document Type.

    1.SPRO>IMG>Material Management>Purchasing>Purchase Order>

    2.Click on Define Screen Layout at Document Level

    3.Highlight the desired Document Type

    4.Click on details

    5.Click on Basic data Item

    6.Change the Account Assignment Category Check from Required to Optional and Save.

    Hope it helps

    Best regards

    Hello Yogesh,

    The culprit might be the material type of the material code which you created. You might have created it for nonvaluated material type.

    Regards

    Hi,

    Account assignment is mandatory for a material which does not have a master record or for materials which have master record, but no accounting views(Non-valuated material).

    Check whether you have maintained accounting view, if not maintain and try creating a PO.

    Regards,

    Hi Yogesh,

    For Material type NLAG & UNBW account assignment is mandatory because it is not valuated. you can check the valuation of that material type in OMS2.

    Hi

    Check the following ...

    1) Please specify your process, what purpose you are creating the PO??

    2) Check What is the Material Type ? if you are using NLAG or UNBW then you must enter account assignment category

    3) Check whether Accounting view is properly maintained if you are using other material types

    4) Check what you have entere first in the line item level, if you are using valid material then enter Material number first

    Hope it helps you

    Thanks / Karthik
