Planned order created after mrp run instead of purchase req
I am facing a strange problem about planned order being created after mrp run jobs runs in background instead of purchase req. This is happening randomly. In the material master MRP view 2 procurement type is F and in the varient for the MRP job the in Purchase requisition control parmater 1 is marked that is purchase requisition. Also planning file is having the entry once there is shortage and hence MRP run is there always if there is shortage of material.

MRP processing parameter used by you for "Create Purchase Requisation" field in MRP run intial screen is currently "2", what this means is that after MRP run, it creates purchase requisitions within the opening period and planned orders outside the opening period.
If you double click the planned order you can see the Opening date.
If you always want PR to be created then use parameter "1" - Instead of "2".
