Purpose

The purpose of this page is to provide information about the creation and deletion of a purchase requisition.

Overview

A purchase requisition can be created directly or indirectly.

Direct: the PR is created manually and whoever creates it determines which material or service is ordered and the quantity and date.

Indirect: that PR from another SAP component is created automatically, e.g.:

  • in MRP
  • with maintenance orders
  • with production orders
  • with networks

Create Purchase requisition

You can create / change / display a purchase requisition in ME51n / ME52n / ME53n. Depending on how you create the Purchase Requisition, the system will fill the creation indicator (EBAN-ESTKZ) field.

The PR creation screen consist of 3 main areas which are header data, item overview and item details.

Delete Purchase requisition

Basically, there are three options you can choose from if you wish to prevent a PO created against a PR.

  • You can delete the line item by selecting the line and then clicking on the trash bin icon just below the PR header
  • You can close a PR if you go to the Quantities/Dates tab (Item details) and check the Closed checkbox and then click on Save
  • Alternatively, you can go to the Status tab and block the PR by selecting the appropriate option from the Block ID dropdown menu


It is not possible to delete line item of PR created from Production order (EBAN-ESTKZ = 'F').
