Purchase Info Record Definition

Let’s start by some definitions to introduce Purchase Info Record in SAP and Source List before listing tables, Tcodes and Report.

What’s SAP Purchase Info Record ?

“Serves as a source of information for Purchasing. The purchasing info record (also referred to in abbreviated form as the “info record”) contains information on a specific material and a vendor supplying the material. For example, the vendor’s current pricing is stored in the info record.
The info record allows buyers to quickly determine:

  • Which materials have been previously offered or supplied by a specific vendor
  • Which vendors have offered or supplied a specific material”

What’s Source List in SAP ?

“The source list is used in the administration of sources of supply. It specifies the allowed (and disallowed) sources of a material for a certain plant within a predefined period. Each source is defined by means of a source list record. The source list serves:

  • To define a source of supply as “fixed”. Such sources count as preferred sources over a certain period of time.
    (For example, the fixed vendor for material 1 is Acme Corp. for the first quarter and Zenith Co. for the second quarter of the year.)
  • To define a source of supply as “blocked”.
    (This means, for example, that contract 123 may not be used for a certain period of time.)
  • As an aid in selecting the preferred source during the source determination process.
    (For example, the vendor Zenith Co. is determined as the source for an item of a requisition dated 15 th June relating to material 1.)
  • To block the external procurement of a material.
    (For example, material 1 may not be ordered from 01.01.98 to 12.31.98.)”
