Assign Source of Supply - Inforecord

Hello guys!

Do you know if can be possible to assign a source of supply at a Purchase Requisition but where the inforecord isn´t brought too?

Is there any IMG activity where i can customize this?

Now, if an inforecord exists for a certain vendor-material and i press "Assign Source of Supply" button, this inforecord is always showed.

Thank you very much for your help.

Please maintain source list .

You define source list requirements at plant level. If a source list requirement exists, you must maintain the source list for each material before you can order it.

The source list serves:

To define a source of supply as "fixed". Such sources count as preferred sources over a certain period of time. For example, the fixed vendor XXXX for material 100XX is ASA Company for the first quarter and BSB Co. for the second quarter of the year.

Select the plants for which you wish to specify a source list requirement

You use the source list to determine the valid source of supply at a certain point in time.

The source list contains all the sources of supply defined for a material and the periods during which procurement from these sources is possible

Following T/Code activities in Material Management module.

Maintain source list - ME01

Display source list - ME03

Display changes to source list - ME04

Analyze source list - ME06

Reorganize source list - ME07

Generate source list - ME05

Display source list for material- ME0M

you make the system settings that are necessary for purchasing operations carried out using source lists.

Source list requirement for materials, It may be necessary to include possible vendors of a material in the source list before the material can be ordered.

The Source list requirement field in the purchasing data of the material master record indicates whether a source list requirement exists for a material.

You can define the Source list requirement at plant level in IMG. Logistics -->Materials management --> Purchasing --> Source list.

Here you can see the plants for which a source list requirement exists.
