QI06 - No suitable material/vendor combinations exist

Hi,

We have a situation where we don't want quality inspection to be triggered for intercompany shipments and the best way seems to be to set QM in procurement flag with no active functions and then create quality inforecords for the intercompany vendors with no inspection.

I have tested this and it seems to work as we want - the problem is that only IQ01 (create quality info record) is working and I have no problems creating the info records this way.

The problem is that we have quite many combinations and we can't create them one by one but when I try to run the mass transaction QI06 I get the above error message every time (I have tried to just do one info rec at the time from the masstransaction but it doesn't work).

Anyone have a suggestion on what might be wrong ?

Thank you in advance

BR

    The program has some limitations when it comes to creating the records.

    Click on the blue info button when in the QI06 program to read the program documentation.

    The following is quoted from the program documentation:

    " When adding records, you can enter one or several materials. As a rule, the only materials used for processing are those for which QM in Procurement is active in the material master and a vendor release or quality assurance agreement is required by the control key. You can also select the materials using the material class. You can enter one or more vendors, for whom a quality information record is to be created. Using the selection criterion 'Only for purchasing info records', you can create quality information records for all possible material-vendor combinations, provided that purchasing information records already exist for these combinations."

    So bottom line, is the material must all ready have the specific QM in procurement settings described above, or you must have purchasing info records set up and you use the "Only for purchasing info records" indicator on the selection screen.

    If you can't work it this way, you'll need to do an LSMW to create them as already suggested.

    I recommend you run this transaction with only one vendor code.

    I assume that LSMW for QI01 is sometimes better.

    Thank you for your suggestions, but we ended up doing it like this : We set up the materials with control key 0001 (Q-agreement required), then did the QI06 to create quality info recs for our combinations.

    After this we do a QI05 (Mass maintenance of QM procurement Keys in the Material Master) and change to the control key we wanted from the beginning... 0000 with no active functions.

    What still bothers me is that it's possible to do it with this control key without changing if you do them one by one...

    • Nice solution Anne.  The only down side I see is that once the 0000 key is maintained, if you extend the material you have to maintain the 0000 in all other plants.  But since you probably need to do the Q info rec's any way in the additional plant too, it's probably not that big of a deal.

      Thank you for updating with your solution! So few people do!

    LSMW or custom BDC program can be a better alternative, I guess!
