SAP MM - Purchase Info Record
SAP R/3 works on all real-time data that includes material master and vendor master. Material and vendor master are separate data records for keeping information of materials and vendors from where material is procured. The combined information of material and vendor altogether is kept in a record that we call as purchase info record. The key points about purchase info record are as follows −
Purchasing info record stores information on material and vendor, supplying that material. For example, a vendor’s current price of a particular material is stored in info record.
