This document provides details about handling Purchase Order settings in SAP SRM.
Purchase Order Settings
In SAP SRM the sourcing application is not enabled for purchaser and SRM automatically creates purchase orders for shopping carts that have a unique source of supply assigned to them and this can lead to creation of purchase order documents for the same supplier.
Significance of BBP_SC_TRANSFER_GROUPED Report
Generally in SRM BBP_SC_TRANSFER_GROUPED report is scheduled to over come above functionality. BBP_SC_TRANSFER_GROUPED report automatically group requirements belonging to the same supplier before creating a purchase order.
We can use BADI BBP_GROUP_LOC_PO to change grouping of shopping cart items for purchase orders. If the shopping cart items are not assigned to a source of supply, SAP creates a purchase order with one purchase order item for each shopping cart item. We can use this badi to create Purchase Orders when source of supply is not attached to Shopping Cart items.

In order to transfer Purchase orders to vendors we have to schedule report RSPPFPROCESS.
The scheduling of this report is defined in actions of purchase order. Please check below path:
