3348604 - Source of Supply in Manage Purchase Requisitions Professional APP


Source of supply is not copied when the item is copied from e.g. item 10 and created but changed the material number but the valuation price of the older material is copied



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open Manage Purchase requisition-Professional
  2. Create an item-item 10
  3. Enter the details, assign a source of supply
  4. Click on apply
  5. Create an item 20 with another material
  6. Select item 10 and click on copy
  7. Item 30 is created
  8. Change the material number in item 30 to the one present in item 20
  9. Go to Source of supply tab
  10. The Source of Supply is not present 


Standard system design


The list of sources that appear are based on the material and plant that you select. When the material is changed, the source of supply should also be updated accordingly.

In a normal scenario when an item is created with material, the valuation price is determined by the system, and upon change of material the valuation price is re-determined however if the user changes the valuation price manually then any change of material will not re-trigger the valuation price determination. 
In the case of copy, considering the user might have changed the valuation price in the source item and that is taken over to the copied item, the valuation price in the copied item is always considered as user-entered value and the re-determination will not take place upon change of material in this case.
