You can update the supplier information if the agreement has the following criteria:
It is not approved.
It is not a purchase order that has been created from a notice of commitment.
It is a manually created purchase order (without a requisition) but no blanket order has been assigned.
It is not based on a bid unless you have the CHANGE SUPPLIER privilege.
It is not a corporate warehouse agreement or a FIM warehouse agreement.
The setting of project default ZP_CHSUPCO controls whether the supplier can be updated on a change order (CO). If this project default is set to Y (default), a supplier can be changed even on a CO. If this project default is set to N, you can change the supplier on the base (or first) supplement but not on higher supplements of type CO.
When the supplier is changed, the addresses assigned to the agreement are deleted and the supplier's address for the address type used as the default for agreements is assigned to the agreement instead. Additionally, the entries for the contact person and the supplier's manufacturer are deleted. You can select new values for the new supplier from the select lists in the Contact and Manufacturer boxes. Properties that have been assigned to the old supplier will be replaced with those of the new supplier.
If you update the supplier on a change order, all the changes with respect to addresses, contacts, manufacturer, and properties are only applied to the current supplement. But the supplier is replaced on all supplements of the current agreement cycle.
