3240134 - Cannot convert PR to PO via ME59N due to error message ME 083 (Enter Supplier)


You are using ME59N to convert a Purchase Requisition (PR) to a Stock Transfer Order (STO) and the document type is correctly determined by ME59N (program: RM06BB30).

However, the conversion fails with error message ME 083 and thus it requests a Supplier (during debugging program RM06BB30 EKKO-LIFNR remains empty), although it should not be required in this case, since a Supplying Plant is used instead.

You have also defined a Vendor (LIFNR) and a Customer (KUNNR) for the supplying Plant and it can be seen assigned to the Plant in table T001W.
