PO For cross company

Postby nattaporn » Thu Feb 12, 2009 12:43 am

Dear MM Guru,

Please kindly let me know, I have found some error as
" Please only use plants with local currency USD"

My scenario are as following

In PO Header level
Pur org structure : 1000
Co code : 1000

In PO line item

expense cost under plant 2000 (under co.code :2000),cost center under co.code :2000
, I have found some error as " Please only use plants with local currency USD" Message no. 06166
and I have already check t001w,t001k.That are OK.
Who ever found this error message before ? And how to solve this error?

Thanks in advance for your kind helping,

MoMo.

it does not make any sense to enter a company code 1000 in the header and maintain then a itemfor a plant that belongs to a different company code, especially not, if the home currency of both companies are different.

Hi,

To be honest, I am supportive of allowing cross-company purchasing (and that's why we are enabling such CC purchasing in our current client). The fact is that in practice there are many consumables items which shall be purchased on the consolidated/bucket basis and that's why it shall be feasible to make it happened. Of course, the company code currency shall also be taken into account during this purchasing activity to avoid this error message.

Cheers,
HT

I share your opinion Ha Tran, I do have just one purchasing org for all my plants (multiple companies) in one country.

Because of legal reporting requirements (INTRASTAT) it does not make any sense to create purchasing organisations for regions. We had this in my first project, and had to make many little amendmends to make the reporting happen, while it is pretty easy, if the organisation is limited to a country.

But it doesn't make any sense to me to create one single PO for items going to USA and CHINA. having items for companies in one PO that do not have the same currency (some years ago, as each ccountry in Europe had is own currency we could have had this case, but not anymore)


And I understood the initial question: putting CC1 into the header, and have one single item that belongs to CC2.
Where should here be the sense?

Hi Svetja,

To a certain extent, it does not make sense to raise the PO for US but then charge the related costs to Chinese-based cost objects. However, I have found out in my current client that there are many cases whereby the service POs were raised with such cost allocation. For instance, there are cases where engineers from US are flying over Perth for their short term meetings. In this particular cases, all local costs incurred during their trips shall be charged to US-based cost centers. Therefore, the service POs were raised with Australian company code but costs are going to US-cost objects......

Cheers,
HT
