Ship To location is not being determined automatically in the Project Purchase Request creation


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Project Management Work Center.
  2. Go to Projects View.
  3. Search and open Project ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Project).
  4. Click on Edit > Products.
  5. Select the respective products and click on Create Purchase Request.

Ship to location is not being automatically determined.


When a Project Purchase Request is created, the delivery address is derived from the end buyer or from the recipient. However the user can enter ship-to location and then delivery address will be taken from the location.

But this location (site) is not referenced to the project. Even if there is only one location in the system it is not possible to see if the delivery address is determined by end buyer / recipient or to be taken from this location. So system does not default anything but give the user possibility to enter a location.


This is the system expected behavior, in this case the Ship To needs to be selected manually.
