An item of a PReq is only regarded as Closed if the requested order quantity has been included in a purchase order.
You can also set an item to Closed manually. This item will then not be taken into account by the materials planning and control system.
You can set the Closed indicator manually at the following points (it can later be cancelled if necessary):
- When changing a PReq, on the item detail screen
- When creating a PO referencing a PReq, on the item detail screen of the PO
You can still create POs by referencing a PReq if this indicator has been set in the requisition concerned.
You can find the closed ind. (EBAN- EBAKZ) under the Quantities/Dates tab.
