Missing master data. In the creation of a Purchase Order one of the most critical values is the Purchase Organisation, this is the main Organisational Structure upon which the creation of a Purchase Order depends. Normally when a Purchase requisition is created there it would be a source of supply, for example a Purchasing info record or Contract for the material and supplier combination. If you have a Purchase requisition where no source of supply exists you can maintain a desired vendor, but before you generate a Purchase Order you have to either assign a valid source of supply to the Purchase Requisition or maintain a desired vendor with the corresponding Purchase Organisation


In the Purchase Requisition maintain a valid source of supply before you create a Purchase Order or make sure you have a desired supplier and Purchase Organisation maintained.
