What settings in MRP to create Automatic Purchase Orders

PP members:

What settings do we need to make in<b> MRP</b> to create Automatic Purchase Orders?

Discussions with a friend of mine he was mentioning that we cannot create Automatic Purchase Orders but we can maintain in <b>MRP</b> for <b>Automatic Purchase Requisitions</b>

If we cannot maintain settings <b>Automatic Purchase Orders</b> in <b>MRP</b>, then what are the settings do we need to maintain in <b>MRP</b> for <b>Automatic Purchase Requisitions</b>

Please elucidate on the above

Directly getting a Purchase order after MRP run is not possible. But SAP provides option to convert PR to PO automatically using ME59N transaction which can be scheduled in background.

Prerequistes for automatic PO creation:

1. Vendor should be enable with automatic purchase order (Purchase data)

2. Material should be enabled with autom PO (Purchasing View)

3. Source List needs to be maintained with preferred vendor as fixed Vendor in the list and also make this record relevant for MRP.

4. Maintain Inforecord for the Material

Now get your planning completed (MRP run), and then use transaction ME59N to create single PO for multiple PR's of a single vendor or any other combination based on the intial screen selection fields.

Hope this helps.... reward your points and close the thread if so,
