How to Configure Material BOM to explode in Purchase Order?

How do I configure Material BOM to explode in Purchase Order? I have a material BOM (say, ABC) with material type ERSA which is being used a an assembly. This material is in turn comprised of three spares (ERSA) with individual no. of quantities for each component. I am trying to create a Purch Order for the main assembly ABC to procure the item from an external source (vendor).

My problem is that the assembly is not exploding (even the BOM Explosion button is not visible). Kindly give me an idea as to where do I start looking for the problem (customizing as well as master data).

    Is this a subcontracting scenario? If yes, are you using the proper item

    Thanks for looking it up.

    If so, why am I getting an error message:

    "Not possible to determine any components" (Msg no. ME154).

    Realized quite late that I had not been very clear in my last query.

    Yes it is a subcontracting scenario and item cat being used is "L".
