Field POSAR in VBAP is showing as Blank and VBRP is showing as A, Please explain the reason?

Dear All

In billing documents, value of field POSAR-VBRP is showing as 'A' ( value item ) even though the field value of VBAP-POSAR as blank ( standard item) in the corresponding sales document ( contract document). Please explain the reason and possible customizing and enhancement objects to control the above setting. What would be the reason?

Note: 1. item category customization configured as standard items (blank). And there is no change in the item category settings.

  1. 2. Due to the above issue, the sales quantity field is not updating in CO-PA document at value fields level.

Please explain the reason.

Thank you for your valuable contribution and time on this error.

Regards Gopalreddy

    Hi Gopal,

    Please check on whether the item category in your Billing and sales document are one and the same. If not, then that gives you the answer.

    This can be checked in the Copy Control configuration between Sales Document and Billing document in VTAA t-code.

    please let me know for any further calrification.

      Sales document ( rental contract ) item is regarded as partially billed after the first billing document creation. For a partially billed sales document item with billing plan, the system assumes that a quantity update has already been executed. Therefore, afterwards, no quantities are updated any more from the second billing documents onwards. And it is considering item type as value item. Hence all the subsequent COPA documents will not update quantities in CO, at the end the quantities are missing in value fields.

    In SAP Standard, Item Type is just for Indication purpose we will use .Up to my level ,it doesnt effect any where .This is present at Sales Document Type level ( VOV8 ).This Field is not in Billing Type level also .

    Note : I can say ,it doesnt have any effective functionality on any where.

    Please share the screen shot of your problem exactly to understand to assist you .

    If you have any doubts please let me know .
