Creating Contracts From A Winning Supplier Bid (Quotation)

Dear All,

I am working on SRM 5.0 and I am trying to create a contract from a wining supplier bid. When I gop into teh suppleir bid and click on the "Create Contract" button, the system responds correctly and after a short while gives back the message "Contract 5600000157- was created." However, when I look for that contract it does not exist anyhwre in the system. I have checked SMQ1, SLG1 and ST22 and there is nothing.

What could be hapening? Please help.

Any messages noticed in RZ20 or SM21 Transaction ?

The contract in the R/3 system was simply not created although the following message occured: "Contract xxxxxxxxx was created". What could be the reason for this?
           You want to follow the path of the contract from the sender to the recipient. 

           To do this, start with Transaction SMQ1 where you should check if the qRFC queue B46B_CTR_CREATE is running and if no error has occured. If a temporary error has occured, you have the option to restart the qRFC. A further option is to delete the qRFC entry and to restart the transfer of the contract (for example, by clicking 'Create contract' again). You can carry out this action in the Bidding Engine directly, in the Sourcing Cockpit, report CLEAN_REQ_REQ_UP must have been executed after the incorrect transfer. In general, this report is scheduled periodically anyway - if this is not the case, you can also start the report manually. 

           Next, you should check the IDoc inbound in the R/3 system. To do this, start Transaction WE02 with the corresponding period. Here, an IDoc of type BLAORD03 followed by one or more COND_A02 IDocs should exist here. Depending on whther the traffic light icon is red or green, the transfer has worked or not. Since the transfer has not worked according to your symptom, you would either expect an IDoc in status red or no IDoc. In the first case, click the IDoc and analyze the status information after the error text. After you have corrected the error, you should restart the transfer of the contract. In the second case, the more likely cause of the error is that incorrect data is sent to the R/3 system. This can be caused by different Customizing or different master data definitions - in this case, a mapping of the data must be programmed in the BADI interfaces provided for this.
