Default Item Category


I would like to default Item Category B into custom requisition and PO document type.

1. How can I default B into item category when we select that particular document type (configuration already in place for allowable item category is only B).

2. ME51N and ME21N are defaulting Quantity and UoM fields with item category B (standard ECC). So if we populate all the line item with B we cannot save the document without enough data.

Please avice me for above two questions.

    1. Go to Materials Management-> Purchasing-> Purchase Order-> Define Document Types

    2. Then setup document type, number range etc,

    3. Highlight the row, then double click Allowed item categories to enter the Item category 'B'

    4. finally maintained the Link purchase requisition - document type
