ME59N & T161A - probs with conversion

Hi everybody,

I face the following problem:

I want to convert PRs (NB, Icat "U") into UB-Purchase orders automatically via ME59N.

In the sandbox it runs, in the Q-system NOT - despite the relevant entries in T161A do exist in both systems.

In my mind entries in table T161A are responsible.

NB 7 F UB 0

NB 7 F UB 7

My error message is:

Item category U not allowed with document type

Doc. type/item cat. NB/U (requisition) <-> /U (purch. order)

With other words: When the entries ,displayed are missing, the error message occurs.

I deleted the entries in the sandbox in order to cross-check it: I got the error message as annexed. I re-entered entries: Everything works fine.

So, I decided to delete the existing entries in D-System, transporte to Q; re-enter new-old entries:

Result: NOTHING: Q-Sys still delivers this converting error..

Does anybody have an enlightning idea?

regards

Thomas

    have you checked whether entry is appearing or not in q-system?

    If there is some inconsistency, you can try creating seperate requests one for deleting the existing entry and get it transported. Than after checking whether it has deleted entry or not. Try transporting another request which creates the entry.

    NB 7 F UB 0

    NB 7 F UB 7

    My error message is:

    Item category U not allowed with document type

    Doc. type/item cat. NB/U (requisition) <-> /U (purch. order)

    You are just checking for the settings of PO, Also check for PR you have allowed did the Item Category U, from T-code OLME > Purchase Requisition > Define Document Types > Link purchase requisition - document type,

    As you mentioned above data is for "Purchasing Document Category" "F" do the same for Purchasing Document Category "B" PR.

    • Dear Thomas,

      Please check if you have maintain customizing below. For STO, here have to maintain.

      OLME> Purchase Order >Set up Stock Transport Order >Assign Document

      type one-Step Procedure.

      STO document type should be linked with PR document type with same item category as that of PR. If linked between STO document type of same item category is not maintained then standard item category

      is used.

      Regards,
