3235150 - How To Merge Multiple Purchase Proposals With Same Source Of Supply Into One Purchase Order


User wants to create one purchase order by merging purchase proposals with same source of supply


SAP Business ByDesign [All]

Reproducing the Issue

1.Supply Control Work Center

2. Process Purchase Proposals View

3.Select all Purchase Proposals created

4.Click on Actions -> Merge Proposals


User can merge the Purchase Proposal based on the same Product ID, Product Specification and Planning Area. This occurs because the Ship-To of the line items in the Purchase Order needs to be the same for the line item.

Also, user can merge the Purchase Requests based on Supplier and other parameters. This will not merge the line items, it will only create only one Purchase Order for the selected requests. The system will not merge the Line Items with the same Product ID because the Ship-To (Planning Area) can differ.
