Can you create a Purchase Order without a Plant ?

No – you can’t. This applies to Purchase requisitions also. Irrespective of what you are creating ( purchase orders or purchase requisitions ) , what you are procuring ( services or physical materials ) and why you are procuring ( for stock or for expense ), you would always have to enter the plant. This especially causes confusion when procuring services – imagine entering a plant when purchasing “legal services” from a lawyer. There is no “inventory” to stock or receive. Still, SAP forces you to use the plant. It is hard coded in SAP. For more on SAP MM, visit SAP MM Training
