Vendor Matl

Enter the vendor’s identification number for this material, if applicable. Press F4 for a list of vendor material numbers.

Note: When using the F4 lookup, sort by the HQMT Material column. This groups the standard and substitute vendor materials together for selection.

If a material exists in PO Vendor Materials for the specified vendor/material group/material, and the vendor material UM is equal to the HQ materials purchase UM, the field defaults the Vendor’s Material ID number. If the vendor material UM does not equal the HQ purchase UM, the field defaults the Vendor’s Material ID from the lowest UM (in PO Vendor Materials) for the vendor/material group/material.

Equipment Lines

If you specify a material number that exists in PO Vendor Materials, but that material number also exists in EM Equipment Parts, the system uses the description and UM from EM Equipment Parts, and the vendor material number will not default.

EM Work Order Lines

If you specify a material number that exists in PO Vendor Materials, but that material number also exists in EM Work Order Parts (EMWP) or EM Equipment Parts (EMEP), it will pull the description and UM from EMWP or EMEP, respectively, and the vendor material number will not default.

Note: Because the system uses the vendor’s material ID# as a cross-reference to the HQ material, you can enter this number if you do not know the HQ material number, and the HQ material number will be provided. This feature is only applicable to materials set up in PO Vendor Materials.

You can also enter the vendor material ID# for any substitute materials that may have been set up for the HQ material in PO Vendor Materials, and have the HQ material number provided.

The system does not validate vendor material numbers.
