Complete SC creates PR and incomplete SC creates PO!!
We are on SRM 7.0, ECC 6.0 (classic scenario).
1. I created a free text SC, assigned a supplier from the supplier list and ordered this SC. The manager then approved this SC. This created a PR in ECC.
2. On the other hand I created a free text SC, did not assign a supplier and ordered this SC. The manager then approved this SC. This SC was routed to SOCO from where the Purchaser assigned a supplier and this created a PO in ECC.
My SPRO setting is "PO if item data complete, else PR". I always want a PO to be created in ECC.
Why is the system trying to create a PR for a SC which is complete in all respect. (first scenario)
