Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I am investigating this also. It is call Third Party Processing in the documentation. The Item Category TAS in the Sales Order will create a Purchase Requisition with the Customer Delivery Address. You create a PO from the Purchase Req. It is not set up in my system, so I’m not sure how the Inventory is handled, but it is different from standard.
There is also Item Category TAB that is similar, but is designed to bring into your warehouse as reserved stock for that specific Sales Order.

Hi,
if u want the system to create PO automatically

1. create third party sales order mean SO with TAS item category (in material master pls assign genral item category BANS in basic data 1 view) system will pick the TAS item category automatically.

2. In item category of SD u can even define to create automatic PO instant of PR. PO/PR create once u save the SO

thanks

    Hello ITAddict, sounds like you are creating a sales order first which then create the purchase requisition. Are you required to create the purch requisition ? TAS seems the right item category. I have to search further. Thank you.

    The Purchase Req is automatically created and the number is plugged into the Sales Order. With my current configuration, I am unable to convert the Purchase Req to a PO, so I don't know if that info is added to the Sales Order or not, but I think it is.

    I like to clarify. Are you creating a purch requisition first, then a sales order ? Thanks in advance.

    The Purchase Req is created by the Sales Order. You start with the Sales Order. The Purchase Req is automatically created. You then manually convert the Purchase Req to a PO.

    Hello, in one of your replies, you said you cannot convert the purchase requisition to a PO. In MM under Purchasing, there is a flag for 'Auto PO'. I wonder if you ensure this flag is checked that this will help you to convert to the PO. Just a thought....thanks,

    Is there a way to link a Third Party purchase order and a sales order line item manually?
