Info record adoption question

Hey all, I have a question about purchasing info records. It appears that when a particular plant (A) creates an info record, at the same time a client-wide info record is created. Plant A enters some specific information into the "Purchase Order Text" in the info record, which is then adopted into ...

Re: Substitutions, BOMs, MRP and such...

Thank you for confirming that... too bad! :cry:

Not sure how the PO acknowledgement would work for STOs. They actually go in and change the delivery dates which results in MRP spewing out more purchase reqs.

Re: Substitutions, BOMs, MRP and such...

I think this is exactly what I need - Material Exchange/Distribution After Issuing the Purchase Order During the ordering process, the supplier might partially or fully exchange the ordered part with another similar part. Partial deliveries of different parts may also take place. It is possible that...

Re: Substitutions, BOMs, MRP and such...

Thanks for the reply! I appreciate you taking the time. About PO (are you talking about purchase orders?) - are you looking for confirmations? That has nothing to do with substitutions really? What? STO = Stock Transport Order (type of Purchase Order). Not looking for confirmations. Looking for a wa...

Re: Settings own favorites in MD04

When you get the authorization message, do a /nsu53. This should show you the security objects you are missing.

Re: BOM with frequencial materials

Would adding 1/3 of a bowl to your BOM solve the problem? Or multiplying the base qty by 3, and multiplying all components except for the 1 piece of bowl?

Re: Substitutions, BOMs, MRP and such...

Wow, this forum has slowed down a lot lately. :o Along the same lines/questions, how would you handle back-orders in POs. How do you communicate back to the requester that something will be shipped 2 weeks after the promised date, without actually changing the PO (since that causes MRP to spit out m...

Substitutions, BOMs, MRP and such...

How do you guys handle planned substitutions? We produce HALB internally in one plant, then that stuff is shipped to the plant where the FERT are produced. Often there are substitutions. Trying to figure out how to deal with them. Example: A FERT A has component HALB X in it's BOM. We issue an STO f...

Archived quotes

Hello all,

At some point in the past, somebody archived sales documents, incl quotes. Some of these quotes are still showing up as demand, and since they are archived, can't be simply deleted. Is there any other way to get rid of them?

Re: Skipped material number (ranges)

It only assigns numbers that don't exist yet. Smart enough for that, luckily.

Re: Skipped material number (ranges)

(This worked... setting the current material back to the beginning of the number range, SAP starts to fill in the skipped numbers. Yippiee.)
