POs created for non valid contracts

Hi Experts,

Can you please help me on one issue..

I have an issue in which purchase order is created for non valid contract ( validity date of contract is already expired) but still

it is creating POs in reference to conract.

I also checked the source list if its validity date is more than the contract. But the source list is not maintained for this.

Can you please guide me.

I would appreciate your help

Regards,

Sheral

    Hi,

    Check notes:

    32375 PReq source determination: closed contracts

    44368 ME51 ME57 Contract as source of supply

    457110 FAQ: Source determination in purchasing

    427864 Source determination outline agreements (date<>curr

    This standard functionality is that only the PO-date is checked against

    the contract validity period not the validity period of the PO.

    As long as the PO date falls within the contract validity the PO will

    not issue the error 06040 or 06041.

    When creating a PO with reference to a contract (= release order), the

    PO date (EKKO-BEDAT) is used to check against the validity dates.

    If the PO date is within the validity period, no error message is

    issued. On the other hand, if you enter a PO date which is outside the

    validity period of the contract, the message 06041 or 06040 is issued.

    Regards,

    Ashwini.

      Dear Sheral ,

      Go to T code OLME ->Environment Data ->Define Attributes of System Messages->System messages

      Here make sure

      System message no 06 040 and 06 041 is set as error (E)

      so that user cannot create PO outside contracts validity period

    Hi,

    I have replicated similar case in IDES system it is giving error message as validity period of contract expired on so and so date.

    Are you getting any warning messge.

    If yes then check the error message number is Message no. 06041.

    Then check the message is set as error or warning message.

    Regards
