 Purchase Order item is updating the Product Category when a Contract is triggered.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Go to the Common Task, New Purchase Order.
  3. Complete the parameters.
  4. Click on the View All button.
  5. Go to the Items tab.
  6. Enter the Item.
  7. Select the necessary quantity as defined in the Contract.

The Contract is triggered and the Product Category is updated to the one maintained in the Contract.


Even thought the Product Category is different between the Contract and Product/Service Master Data, once the Contract is triggered, system will take the Product Category maintained in the Contract.


This is the system expected behavior.

Our suggestion for this scenario is to remove the line in the Contract and update with the expected Product Category.
