How many vendors do you expect for a single PO? what purpose shall such check box have in PO?

Isn't the vendor that you have on the the PO automatically considered as fixed as you have no chance to change it after your saved the PO.

the vendor is not fixed for a PO but for a MM.. and we want this information to be displayed in PO..

"MM procured in this PO is always done thru a fixed vendor"


Let me rephrase it again:

A material can be ordered from n vendors in general, this can be restricted with a fixed vendor in a source list by simultaneously setting a source list requirement in the material master or at plant level.

A purchase order can always only be addressed to 1 vendor, no alternative than creating a second PO if you have a different vendor for a second material. Conclusion, the vendor in a purchase order is fixed, you can never have 2 vendors in 1 purchase order.

You can fix vendor in source list with selection of check box and then better go for creation of PO/automatic PO with maintaining master data such as material master, vendor master and info record etc....
