MM Interview Questions

1. In which of the following cases can you define scales for the condition type

a.  Purchase order
b.  Contract
c.  Info record
d.  Vendor
e.  Quotation
f.  Scheduling agreement

2.  What is meant by one-time vendor?

You can create special master records for vendors from whom you only procure a material once or very rarely. These are called one-time vendor master records and, in contrast to other master records, you can use a vendor master record for several vendors. Therefore, no vendor-specific data is stored for one-time vendors. You can control this using the relevant field selection for account groups for one-time vendors. When you create a purchasing or accounting document using a one-time vendor, the system automatically branches to an additional data screen on which you enter specific data, such as the vendor’s name, address, or bank details. If an RFQ or a PO is sent to a one-time vendor, the vendor data must be entered manually.
