Impossible to lock contract line in SRM 7.0
we are trying to lock a contract line by "Block Local Sourcing" option, however error message "The item has no distribution and also not available locally for sourcing" is displayed. Do you know how we que block contract line in SRM 7.0?

Unfortunately PURCHASERS are missing to understand the meaning of the SAP filed by F1 help in the web front.This is one of the disadvantages in the ITS / Webdynpro front end compare to GUI ...
What is the status of this contract ?
Block Local Sourcing" checkbox - This facility is new facility in CCTR from SRM 700 version onwards.
Lock the contract is available for HEADER level
if you want to block it you need to edit the contract and make the line item as INACTIVATE and distribute the contract to backend system
Is your contract Local or Distributed to Backend system?
By default, every item in a central contract is available as source of supply locally. If you do not want the items to be available locally, set the Block Local Sourcing indicator on the General Data tab page.
Note 1332404 - No error for contract without distribution and local sourcing
