2741013 - Classic MM PO with GR-Based INV indicator and without GR or IR indicators, system issues the 06 160 error


A vendor has only GR-based indicator given in Vendor master data. When a classic PO is getting created from a Shopping cart for such vendor, the system issues the error 06 160 "With GR-based invoice verification please enter GR and IR indicators". In case of automatic Workflow, only the error is shown in SRM RZ20 t-code.

The same symptom happens in MM ME21N transaction, when GR-Based Invoice indicator is flagged and the user deselects the GR and IR indicators.
