The correct purchasing group is not being determined in the SC line item

Dear all,

I have a problem in that for some reason, when a shopping text line item is added to the shopping cart, the wrong purchasing group is determined. Further more when you look in the basic data section they is a drop down against the purchasing group field listing all pruchasing groups setup in the org plan via PPOMA_BBP.

This means that the requisitioner can change the purchasing group to any one even the one that is not relevant to his or her Purchasing Organisation. This of cause is not right because if the requisitioner is allowed to change the P/Grp, the wrong buyer may end up recieving the buyer completion work item.

What is causing this?

We have uniquely assigned P/Orgs to P/Grps and assigned resposiibility of P/GRPS to one unique ORg unit (company).

for example, a suppose product Category 1234567 is assigned to P/GRP 100 & P/GRP 100 is assigned to P/ORG 1000 and the P/GRP responsibility is set to Org unit(company) 1000, The requisition "sits" under an orgunit linked to company 1000.

If a requisitioner creates a text item and assigns product category 1234567, when the item is added to the shopping cart , I expect to see that the followig:

1. The Company code(CC)should be 1000 (This is happening)

2. The P/org should be 1000(This is happending)

3. The Plant sssignment is correct

4. The p/grp is worong. It appear that the first P/Grp is assigned plus a drop down listing all p/grps created for all purchasing P/Orgs.
