SRM PO issue for standalone PO: Purchasing across company codes is not allowed

Hi All,

We have implemented SAP SRM 7.13 EHP1 and have a scenario where Purchasing group is responsible to create Standalone POs in SRM, We are having an issue when creating these standalone POs, we always get the error as "Purchasing across company codes is not allowed". I did investigate and found that in case of standalone POs though company code is available in header level it does not gets into the line items levelĀ  checked the BBP_PD and screenshot as below :

Company code populates on Header level

Company code is blank at line item level :

But in case we create a PO from SC company code gets populated at the line item level and header level, Can you please let me know how i can resolve this issue, i checked the SAP NOTE 1079525 i dont know whether we really need to implement this note.

Dear Ankur,

I found this explanation from a colleague of mine in relation to this issue.

"For PO creation, it is not allowed to purchase cross the company code in standard. So even if you assign the other companies in the group where the purchaser is assigned, the error message "purchasing across company codes is not allowed" still persists. This is standard design."

In order to solve the issue, please use the "Select Company Code" from note 1079525

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
