Follow-on purchase order not possible for a RFx document

Dear Guru's,

We have a business requirement of creating a purchase order as a follow on document in the backend ECC system from a RFx document. We are in the environment of SRM 7.01/ECC 6 ehp5 with classic implementation of SRM.

Since a RFx document does not contain any account assignment object, the PI message for backend PO creation is failing at the ECC side due to non availability of account assignment object.

Could you please suggest a solution to enable the backend PO creation?

Thanks and regards,

Ranjan

    Hi Ranjan,

    When you create RFx manually and convert to ECC PO, the account assignment details are taken from SRM user attribute/user setting defaults.

    If system do not find a defaults then PO is created with account assignment category "U".

    Please check whether account assignment type "U" is allowed for your PO document type in ECC.

    With Regards,

      Dear Malay,

      Since cost center may or may not be maintained for the user attribute, we need to enable the unknown account assignment category for the purchase order.

      Thanks and regards,

      Ranjan

    Hello,

    As far as I know, when you create a PO from accepted quotation, accounting data should be taken from the user attributes (who accepted the quotation and it is creating the PO).

    Is this not happening?
