Creation Indicator in PR: B Material Requirement planning

Hi All,

I am facing an unusal scenario.

User is claming that PR is getting generated for a material after running the MRP, even there is enough stock.

I checked material & I found that MRP type is ND, there is no entry in the planning file for this material.MRP list & stock requirement list of this material is showing nothing. So there is no way that PR will be created automatically via MRP run for this material.

When I checked one PR for this material, Plant & storage location, creation indicator is showing as B Material Requirement planning.

Could you please help me that why creation indicator is showing as B>

I further checked these PRs are created long back when MRP type was V1. Later they changed it to ND.

How to delete MRP generated PR manually when PO has been created for these PR.

Regards

Shilpi

    As you said; the PR was created long ago by MRP, when it was not ND.

    If it was already converted into a PO, there's no need to delete it, right? If not, just delete it manually.

    In the future, when you change MRP type from a valid type to ND, always remember to do 2 additional things, as the system will not do them automatically:

    1- delete the MRP list

    2- delete any planning elements if they exist, like planned orders and MRP generated PRs.

      Hi

      Thanks for your valuable input. But I do not see deletion flag in ME52N. so unable to delete.

      What could be the possible reason that deletion icon is not available. generally we see it below the item overview.

      Regards
