2641993 - Error 'Purchasing terms must be specified for an active procurement arrangement' While Trying to Delete Payment Term in a Supplier's Master Data

Symptom

You receive the error message 'Purchasing terms must be specified for an active procurement arrangement' when trying to delete the Payment Term from the Supplier's Master Data.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Base Work Center.
  2. Go to Suppliers View.
  3. Search for the affected Supplier.
  4. Open its Master Data and click View All.
  5. Go to Purchasing tab.
  6. Try to delete the Payment Term under Commercial Data section.

Cause

When you create a Supplier, you do not need to specify Purchasing Terms, although once you maintain one such as Payment Term, Incoterms or Purchase Order Currency. You will no longer be able to leave it empty.

Resolution

If you need to delete the Payment Term, you would need to fill in any of the other fields under Commercial Data.

If you select any currency as the default Purchase Order Currency or define an Incoterm, then you should be able to delete the Payment Term with no errors.
