1. Item category for purchase requisition(EBAN – PSTYP):

There are a lot of item categories defined for purchase document, but only some of them are supported to transfer to SRM system.

This is hard-coded in LBBPKF01/FORM GENERAL_CHECKS:

Only the following categories are supported:

For Subcontracting items, Government Procurement flag should be checked. You may refer to the following link for subcontracting infomation:

2. If report BBP_EXTREQ_TRANSFER is used to transfer PR, both tables V_T160EX and V_T160PR should be maintained well.

  • For table V_T160EX, material group(MATKL), purchasing group(EKGRP) and profile(EPROFILE) can be maintained.

3. Procurement profile can’t be re-determined with t-code ME54N, ME54 or ME55.

Sometimes, end users want to change purchasing group or material group to update the EPROFILE in purchase requisition. This can be realized with t-code ME52N or ME52.

However some end users directly use t-code ME54N to change this before releasing the PR. This won’t update the EPROFILE in EBAN and EPRTRANS tables.

Reason: This is hard-coded in function module BBP_EPROFILE_REQ_CHANGE
