3206535 - Purchase Requisition - Automatic Source Determination Picked Purchase Contract With Different Company Code


During the creation of the Purchase Requisition with the automatic source determination on, in the source of supply the contract determined belongs to different company code



Reproducing the Issue

  1. App: Manage Purchase Requisition Professional
  2. Tick the box for Automatic Source Determination
  3. Fill Material, Plant, Supplier and some basic information
  4. Navigate to Source of Supply tab

You will find that the contract is picked automatically


When Automatic source determination flag is set.

System tries to find all possible sources like 
1 contract
2 info records


The system searches the source list and does not find a valid one and then it carries out a search of valid contracts for this material and plant (it also searches with a blank plant because it is possible to have a blank plant in a contract item) 

Then it can assign a contract from another company when no other valid possibilities are found and proposes it as defaulted source of supply
