    Creation Indicator (Purchase Requisition/Schedule Lines)

    Shows whether the purchase requisition or delivery schedule line was

    created manually or automatically (e.g. as a result of the requirements

    planning process).

    In the case of delivery schedules created under scheduling agreements,

    if schedule lines with different creation indicators are consolidated to

    form a release schedule line, the creation indicator remains "blank".

    Following are SAP Standard creation indicators available in system;

    B	Material requirements planning
    D	Direct procurement
    F	Production order
    G	Store order
    R	Realtime (manual)
    U	Converted planned order
    V	Sales and distribution document
    M	Compression (monthly basis)
    Y	Compression (annual basis)

    • only with indicator R, the requisition is created manually with ME51N transaction.

      All other indicators are representing automatic creations.

      This can be a mass creation with MRP run (indicator B) or APO (indicator A)

      or more or less individually but triggered from maintenance of another document like Create third party sales order in VA01 (indicator V) or converting planned order into PR with MD04 (indicator U)
