Missing Purchasing Organization on Vendor master record

We have a vendor(s) that was created without a purchasing organization.

Is there a way to update the Purchasing Organization on a vendor master record if the purchasing organization field was left blank when the vendor was orignally created?

What are the ramifications of creating some vendors with a purchasing organization and others without?

You will need to extend the vendor to the purchasing org. using MK01 or XK01. The vendor master can be maintained centrally (XK01) or purchasing data (MK01) and accounting data (FK01) can be maintained independently. That is the reason SAP has provided 3 separate transactions.

If you need to use the vendor for purchasing functions (eg. create a PO), then the prerequiste is that you will need to maintain the vendor for all valid purchasing organizations. There are no other ramifications as such.

Hope this helps.
