I found lot of messages/questions about making purchasing group as optional in Request for quotation (RFQ) Regarding this ,I would like to share some information about this. This is my first Blog in SDN.
Is it possible to make purchasing group as optional in RFQ (ME41)?.
The answer absolutely is NO.
This is SAP Standard system behavior. The field ‘purchasing group’ is a compulsory field regardless of what is set in customizing(below)
This is hard-coded in program FMMEXE01(include FMMEXE01_EKGRP). See no_input.
005510 * Pruefen Einkaufsgruppe
005530 form ekgrp using ekg_ekgrp.
005550 if ekg_ekgrp eq space.
005560 perform no_input using ‘EKKO’ ‘EKGRP’.
Conclusion:So,we we cannot make purchasing group field as optional in RFQ.
I welcome your comments and suggestions.
