2388988 - ME59/ME59N does not find requisition without assigned source of supply


Create a Purchase Requisition (PR) and do not assign a fixed source of supply, only a desired vendor, then try to generate a Purchase Order (PO) from this PR in transactions ME59 or ME59N (Automatic Creation of POs from PRs) and the following symptoms are noted:

  • The system does not find the PR, and message ME261 "No suitable purchase requisitions found" is issued.
  • When trying to create the same PO in transaction ME21N (Create PO) from the PR, the PO can be created (provided that all other required data like price etc can be derived from the available data without further user input).
