PO for Unknown account assignment category with Standard (Blank)- item category for stock /consumption material

Hi,

Is it possible to create a PO for a stock material (with material code) or consumpton material by giving just short text (without material number) for the combination of Unknown account assignment category with standard (Blank) item category.

I am facing this issue & not able to create a PO for it.

System saying that "U" - unknown accout. assign. catergory is possible with "D"&"B" item categories only.

Pl. check & let me know how to as my requiremtn is to procurea stock/consumption material .

Thanks,

CVB

    You had already asked this question 4 days ago.

    And the answer is alread in the long text to the error message you get when you enter an U account assignment in the PO:

    Unknown account assignment not defined for use here

    Message no. ME069

    Diagnosis

    You have entered the account assignment category "unknown account assignment" for the item. However, in the case of purchase orders and scheduling agreements an exact account assignment is necessary.

    What do you think why SAP explains this in this way in the long text?

    It is a hardcoded error. No way around.

    IF PSK_PSTYP NE PSTYP-DIEN AND
    PSK_PSTYP NE PSTYP-BLNK.
    MESSAGE E069.
    ENDIF.

    if you dont know an account assignment at order time, then order to stock, here you dont need any account assignment. when you issue the material later , then you issue it to the cost center of your choice, which should be known at that time

    Unknown account assignment category can only be used in case of services and blanket purchase order.

    Hi Chetan,

    For Eg:

    whenever ur creating PO for Asset r Cost Center , at that time u dont which asset no (or) cost center to put, for this scenario u can use Account Assignment Cat "U".

    But at the time of MIGO,u shud enter correct Asset or cost center
