Use of master data in MM..?
Can anybody explain me about the Purchasing info record and source list in MM master data.
Please provide me clear explanation with example.

Both are master data of material management
1) Info record:- It is one master data.
You can maintain it with ME11.
Info record is maintain with mateial, vendor, plant and purchase org.
In which you can maintain price of mateiral, tax code, quantity etc.
If you have maintain info record one time then whenever you create purchase order for same material, vendor, plant and purchase org. all detail for purchase order is come from info record you just check it then save your purchase order.
2) Source list: - it is also one master data of MM.
You can maintain it with ME01.
some case you have purchase material from some specific vendor.
Suppose in you org. some X material is always purchase from Y vendor because Y vendor is provie quality of mateiral in less price.
So you can set this type of requirement with source list.
If you can create source list for mateiral, plant and vendor then you can't create po with other vendor which is not in source list.
For source list you have to maintain tick in material master purchasing data.
