subcontract-std costestimate error


i am doing std.costestimate for subcontract material,but i am getting error that is 'no price could be determined for subcontract'

so the reason is -they are not matained info record for the vendor and mat.but why it is taking for that vendor only, why don't take other vendor purchase order price, for this we specify anywhere for particular vendor for subcontracting.

2nd one-in the valuation variant in subcontract tab ,we have given -net purchase order price and net quotation price'.but price is not picking from purchase order this has given manually(p001-condition),but no info record for vendor vs mat, to price picking we need to maintain info record also( from where it will pickup price from inforecord or purchase order (priority pur.order)).

Thanks & regards

Consider that the system selects a vendor in the following way:

1. If a vendor exists in the quota arrangement book, this vendor is selected.

2. If no vendor exists in the quota arrangement book, the vendor in the source list is selected.

3. If no entry exists in the source list, the vendor is selected using a purchasing info record (dummy info record, preferred info record), if the corresponding indicator is set.

Otherwise, the vendor is selected from the purchasing info record with the lowest net price.

This behaviour is reported in the standard documentation and in several R/3 notes: please DO review notes 351835 and 713111.
