PR/PO Against Contract

Hi experts.

Im making a contract (ME31K), with only one position (Service), qty 1, value 10. The service also is Qty 1, Value 10.

The problem is when i make the purchase requisition (ME51N), against the contract, in that PR i use a qty of 10 and value of 100.

Later on, when i make the purchase order against the PR/CONTRACT, the system, allows me to save, the PO with a qty of 10 an value of 100, so there is no check against the qty and values in the contract.

I need to get an error or a message saying that i cant save the PO because im over a qty of 9.

Thanks in advance!.

    Have a look in SPRO at messages and set to error:

    MM \ External Services Management \ Define attributes of system messages

    e.g. SE 144 and 438

      Hi there, thanks for the reply.

      I have already set those messages as error, but it is still allowing me to create PO´s with more qty than the qty in contract.

      The PR, and the PO, are Service based, so the qty its updated in the service tab of the PR/PO.

      SCENARIO 1:

      If i make a PO against the Contract, i get the error, so its working ok,

      SCENARIO 2:

      but if i make the PR (referencing the contract), then the PO (referencing the PR), i dont get the error, and it let me save the PO with no problem.

      The Scenario 2 is the one i need to solve

    May be because PR is an Internal document, we can change its limit for our requirement. But that is not in the case of PO since it is an external document. Hence while doing PO against PR, no error has been thrown.
