Item Type configuration in SRM 7.01 with PPS

Hi experts,

We are conducting an upgrade, from SRM 5 to SRM 7.01. We are also using ECC 6.04.

We use plan driven procurement with RFx, meaning, Purchase Requisitions are transferred from ERP to SRM, we create RFx from Purchase Requisition and Purchase Order from winning quote. Our scenario is Extended Classic.

We configured item type and hierarchy, and it was functioning alright. Then we activated PPS business functions (/SAPPSSRM/SRM_CROSS_INDUSTRIES and

/SAPPSSRM/SRM_PPS, and SRM_SOURCING_1). After we activated those BF, item type and item hierarchy for material and services stop functioning well. We stopped seeing items like "folder type" and we started to see just a white square. Also, if we check RFx or Purchase orders created BEFORE the activation of the BF, we still see the item type correctly. The problem is with "new" RFx and Purchase Orders, from new purchase requisitions.

Is there any known configuration for item type and hierarchy? Remember it was functioning alright before PPS implementation, the problem started with BF activation.

Thanks in advance
