ECC PO not created for direct material

Dear experts,

SRM 7.0, ECC 6.0 Classic scenario

Trying to order a direct material from SRM (internal goods/services)...I am assigning a vendor via an info record and a local SRM PO has been created but the PO has not been replicated to ECC.

My number range settings are as shown

In SRM: 03 660000000 669999999 (ECDP has internal number range as 03, so gave 03 here)

In ECC: 66 660000000 669999999 check box on external

and defined transaction type as ECDP with following setting

ECDP Direct PO from SRM 10 45(int) 66(ext)

Is this correct? If Yes what could be the issue as no ECC PO is created from the direct material SC?

Thanks

    Hello,

    You mentioned that you are using direct material with classic scenario.

    Technically, Classic scenario can not be adopted for Direct Materials.

    One of the reasons is because only local sources of supply can be used for direct materials. Driving document will be local as standard design.

    This is also explained at the following Consulting Note:

    495484: Direct material: Sources of supply from the back end

    This note is valid as of BBPCRM 300 and the system behaviour didn't change.

    Regards,

    Ricardo

    As I explained in your other thread, it seems your SC does not have Fixed vendor and hence a PR is getting created instead of PO. Try sending this SC to sourcing and create a Po from SOCO by assigning a vendor.

      Do you see any error in RZ20? Try activating Sourcing for this material and create PO from SOCO. Check if PO creates from there and update.
