2757680 - ME59N inconsistent error messages for the same Purchase Requisition

Symptom

When using ME59N, you notice the following anomalies:

  • If a PR is assigned with only the purchasing organization (fixed vendor is missing), ME59N provides error "Different source maintained for requisition". This does not make any sense.
  • If the same PR undergoes the same run, by itself, the system correctly identifies the error and provides error "Enter a vendor".

You'd like to know why this is, especially for planning a custom enhancement (for example, automated PO creation via BAPI).
