Hi Jeet,

Have you defined any purchasing group in ECC?

You can define it in the customizing: SPRO transaction > SAP implementation guide > Materials Management > Purchasing > Vendor master > create purchasing groups.

Also, ensure that the purchasing group was maintained in the corresponding material master, in the purchasing tab.

Kindly reward and close the thread if your query could be addressed, otherwise reply it back with more inputs.

Thanks & regards,

Hello Pablo,

First of all thanks for looking into this issue.

The purchasing group at ECC are already maintained in material master for both To and From Location.

But still the same CIF error message is appearing.

Could you please provide more input on this.
