Service info records

All SAP Gurus,

As we have Purchasing info records, for materials.

Similarly for procuring services, do we have anything like service info records?

If yes what is the path to maintain/create those?


Former Member replied

The purchasing info record is a source of information for Purchasing on a certain material and the supplier of this material. It contains data such as the vendoru2019s current prices and conditions for this material, the number of the last PO, or the time interval in which the vendor can supply the material.

Creating Info Record for Material w/o Master Record

If you wish to create an info record for a material without a master record, you must create the info record for a material group.

Choose Master data ® Info record ® Create.

The initial screen is displayed.

Enter the vendor. Do not fill the Material field

Specify the following:

u2013 Whether the info record applies to a certain plant (enter the purchasing organization and plant) or

u2013 Whether the info record is plant-independent (enter the purchasing organization only)

u2013 The info record category

Press ENTER .

The general data screen appears.

In the General Data view, enter the following mandatory data:

u2013 Short description of the info record or material in the first entry field

u2013 Material group to which the info record is assigned

u2013 Order unit used for the material

u2013 Sort term (key) covering several info records that belong to a material group

Enter the vendor data (if it is not already suggested by the system, having been taken from the vendor master record), the origin data, and the supply options.

In the Purchasing Organization Data view, enter the data for the purchasing organization if you entered a purchasing organization in step 2. Press ENTER to display the purchasing organization data screen.

You must enter the following data:

u2013 Vendor's planned delivery time (used for scheduling)

u2013 Responsible purchasing group

u2013 Standard PO quantity (used for price determination in conjunction with price scales)

You can enter data such as tolerances allowed for underdeliveries and overdeliveries.

Enter the net price. You have two options:

u2013 You enter the net price per unit in the Net price field. This price includes the vendor's normal discounts or surcharges only - cash discounts for prompt payment, for example, are calculated separately.

u2013 You enter the gross price in the Net price field and then maintain the pricing conditions. (To do this, choose Extras ® Conditions.) The system automatically replaces the entered gross price with the calculated net price.

(Refer to Maintaining Conditions.)

Enter texts (internal info record memo and purchase order text). Choose Goto ® Texts to display the text overview.

Save the info record.

Repeat steps 2 to 8 for all purchasing organizations and plants that are to be assigned to the info record.
