Cross company purchases in SRM 7.0

Hi all,

We recently upgraded from SRM 5.0 to SRM 7.0.

Can anyone confirm whether we can configure cross company purcahses in SRM 7.0?

For SRM 5.0,I saw few threads which suggested use of BBP_DOC_CHANGE_BADi to change the purchasing group but in SRM 7.0 is this part of std configuration?

Pls advise.

Thanks for your time.

    What do you mean by "cross company purchasing" ?

    You buy some materials between plant A1 from company code A and supplying plant B1 from company code B ?

    If so, there is no limitation for this kind of purchase, neither in SRM 5.0, nor in SRM 7.0

    There is no link in SRM between company code and purchasing groups. Purchasing groups are only linked to Purchasing Organization with cardinalities :

    1 Purch. Org : n Purch. Groups

    1 Purch. Group : 1 Purch. Org

    For more details regarding purchasing groups, see thread below:

    Hi,

    with the meaning of cross company purchasing, are you talking about the scenario where the purchaser belonging to a purchasing group of company A doing the buying activity for another purchasing group belonging to the company B? if it is so, then it can be taken care of in the org structure of SRM.

    Thanks and regards,

      Hi,

      A buyer cannot be assigned to two purchasing groups at the same time. Standard SAP SRM does not support it. As I mentioned. you can use the workaround mentioned in the previous memo.
