SAP S/4 HANA 1511 – Issue in linking Plant to Vendor Business Partner in BP
We are using transaction BP in SAP On Premise edition 1511. When trying to link a Plant to the Vendor in BP transaction ( using BP Role FLVN01 ), we find that the Plant field in ” Additional Purchasing Data ” is greyed out :
On clicking on the “Create” button, we are getting a screen where we can enter the Plant, but getting an Error saying Vendor Sub Range is mandatory. We do not need VSR, we only need to assign a Plant to the Vendor BP in order to enable Stock Transfer Order scenario.
Getting the Message ” Enter Vendor Sub-Range ” as shown above. So, we are unable to assign the Plant in Additional Purchasing Data.
Any help would be appreciated.
Hi Sanjoy - the plant field you are referring to is relevant for vendor subrange. See the above link for details.
The field you want to populate is LFA1-WERKS and is located in Supplier General Data tab in BP. See comparison image below.
However I noticed that in order to assign the plant, you have to check both VSR relevant and Plant relevant indicators right above the plant field in S/4 even if you have no plans to use the subrange functionality in the vendor. This was not the case in ECC, not sure why it is in S/4.
You are correct. Its throwing an Error message when I am putting the Plant without selecting both the VSR and Plant relevance checkboxes above. But, I can assign the Plant when both the above check-boxes are selected. Thanks
Great. As mentioned earlier, please ensure you are assigning plant to the BP in the supplier general data and not additional purchasing data (unless of course you decided to use vendor sub-range functions).
In our system, block 'Additional General Data' is missing. So it is not possible to maintain the plant. Do you know how can I make this view visible?
Thanks and Kind Regards,
Hello Sanjay and Urvashi,
Are you able to run Intercompany Stock Transfer Scenario using NB Purchase Order? After maintaining the plant in General Data, I am still not able to see Shipping Tab in NB PO.
I am yet to get an opportunity to work on s/4 HANA. However from my experience on ECC, configuration for shipping for Inter CC STO needs to be done in below path
MM > Purchasing > Purchase Order > Set up STO > define shipping data for plants > Go to Supplying plant and assign the sales area of receiving plant.
Not sure whether this path exists in S/4 HANA or not. You may check and update.
I am trying to decide on which BP role to select for procurement of Spares. Being New to S4 Hana, I am confused with the difference between. BBP000, FLVN00, FLVN01.
Please help understand.
For vendors you need to have company code and purchase org data view available in the BP ie a combination of FLVN00 and FLVN01. You can create a BP role grouping under BP > Basic Settings > BP Roles > Define BP Role Groupings
Give any Z Name to Role Group and add the required BP Roles. Create a BP with this BP Role Group.
Award Points if helpful 🙂
