    Hi

    There is no option to fix a vendor in the material master either you have to do the following

    1, you have create a purchase info record for the material and vendor and maintain this vendor as a fixed vendor in that.

    2 you have to create source list and enter the validity period and maintain the mateial and vendor and select this vandor as FIXED source.

      There is no such a field in material master that can be described as a Single vendor material,

      Still if you want that in Material master You have to define charaterstic and has to assign it on Material class tab..

      But there has to be a bUsiness regirement doing this, Hope your query will resolved

    Shikha,

    In Purch view Mat Master, check the button Source List for those materials in assigned to a particular vendor (which will require a source list maintainance for PR or PO, without which you wont be able to create PR or PO) next maintain the source list for the Vendor-Material combination (plant specific)

    If you want to have report, you can pull it from EORD table.

    Regards

    Suraj

    In purchasing view for the materials in MM, check Source List check box.

    Maintain Source list using ME01 with validity dates, Vendor, plant, Porg and check box fixed vendor

    Now on PR, when you do assign vendor, this fixed vendor will be suggested / assigned, on which PO can be created.

    If you try to create PO directly, then when this specific vendor is not used, you will get an error message.

    If you need report of all materials with fixed vendor, user table EORD to list same, either look in this table using SE16 or design custom report with help of technical team.
