Create a requisition from Contract
Hi everybody, I am working in ERP 4.7 and in transaction ME51N I have button Document Overview and option to create a requisition from a contract. But when I search the contract, select this and press Adopt button the system don´t do nothing.
What can I do? Can I create a requisition from a contract?
Thanks in advance

If that is the case, why are you looking for PReqs creation with reference to a contract? Perhaps, you want to create a Purchase Order for the requested services (may be originated from plant maintenance, or freight purchases etc). We have similar scenario. How we do is -
We first create Global Contracts for services. With reference to these contracts, we first create Freight Purchase Orders. These purchase orders are utilized by shipment cost documents to create Service Entry Sheets automatically when shipment cost documents are settled in transportation module. For this reason, we don't require purchase requisition, of course. Now, anyway, there is a facility to create PO automaticaly from shipment cost document settlement. We have switched to this functionality. No more we create manual PO#s.
Perhaps, if you explain why you are creating manual service preqs especially referring to a contract. A contract can be used to assign to a purchase requisition for creating a release order. Not sure, if I am confusing you, but have wealth of knowledge in this area too in the projects...please explain your requirement in detail.
