How to create purchase order in sap using me21n

A Purchase Order can be created from another purchase document such as a purchase requisition or quotation. It can be also created without referencing another document.

In addition, the Purchase Order can be created knowing or not knowing the vendor in advance:


  • POwith vendor known, use transacions ME21N or ME21
  • POwith vendor unknown, use transaction ME25. In the last step, the SAP system must assign a vendor.

Each line in aPOcan be assigned to an account or accounts.

The account assignment is implemented by selecting an Account Assignment Category.
For example the P code is assigned to the account assignment category “Project”. It could require a General Ledger (GL) account, a Business Area and a Project number.
The K code is for the account assignment category: “Cost center” and it could require a cost center number.
