    Hi,

    Each document type of Purchase Order is assigned to a Partner Schema, for which the system tries to find all the partner functions assigned to the Vendor Master Record.

    Now you can check the Partner Schema assigned under

    SPRO --> IMG --> Materials Management --> Purchasing --> Partner Determination --> Partner Settings in Purchasing Documents --> Define Partner Schemas

    and assignment of it to the document type in

    SPRO --> IMG --> Materials Management --> Purchasing --> Partner Determination --> Partner Settings in Purchasing Documents --> Assign Partner Schemas to Document Types

    Here if a certain partner function is marked as mandatory to a schema in Define Partner Schema under Partner Functions in Procedure tab then the system will ask you to maintain it while creating the purchasing document.

    Your query is vague as you have just copied the error message details from SAP. First of all tell me what were trying to when you got this message. Were you trying to create a vendor?

    Hi,

    As said by Manoj, you have maintained certain partner roles as mandatory while creating the Purchase order which is missing at the time of creation of PO due to which you are getting this error message.

    Check which are the roles are mandatory and assign the partner roles in the vendor master inorder to avoid these kind of error in future.

    I think you have not maintained the invoicing party role(PI) in vendor master, due to which you are getting this error message.

    • If the error message says that VN is missing, then I doubt that it is related to a missing invoicing partner PI.

      Maybe the partner schema is only maintained for the document, but not partner schema and partners exist for the vendor.

      As Ramesh already said, ram a has to provide more info to make this vague question clearer.

    Hi,

    if you are in this case:

    Even though the configuration settings

    have been set so that the VN partner function is carried into the PO

    when a PO is created and saved (VN set also at higher level) this is not happening. SAP is

    generating messge ME366 even though the configuration settings

    are correct )

    --> note 1227569 will correct the issue if you have a lower SP than SAPKH60303

    Please test
