Unit of measure between Sales Order, Delivery and Billing

Hi SD Gurus,

I need to configure this scenario in SD. The
Client is asking for Unit of Measure “BAR” in the Sales Order, “KG” in the
Delivery and “BAR” again in Billing. The problem is when you call the VF01, because
it brings the data from the Delivery, including the Unit of Measure. I need to
process the Billing in “BAR” as well as the Sales Order, and the Delivery in “KG”
because this is the Unit of Measure of the inventory. I´ve tried with Copy Control
from Delivery to Billing, different types of Item Categories, but the VF01 is
still calling the Unit of Measure of the Delivery. Somebody know how I can to
bring the UM of the SO but continue processing the delivery in KG ?.

Thanks in advanced for your help

    Hi,

    In VTFL if you chack the Routine 004 at item level this controls the Copying of Unit from the Delivery

    May be you can change the logic here

      Hello Carlos,

      Please try this.

      Maintaining Sales Unit in MMR Sales: Sales org. 1 view with an other UOM as KG and the system will assume that it will be the default UOM in VA01 however it can be substituted with the other UOM's maintained in Additional data of MMR.

      Maintain Unit of issue in MMR Plant Data/Stor. 1, from there system proposes the mentioned unit of issue against goods issuance.

      Maintain UOM conversion factor in MMR --> Addtional Data option --> Unit of Measure.

      Suppose 1 BAR --> 1 KG

      Now enter the quantity as KG in VA01 and when delivery will be created with reference to that; same UOM will be copied. In case if you're entering UOM as BAR in VA01 then system will not gonna convert that automatically to KG in the delivery document and you've to overwrite the UOM to KG manually in delivery document. For automatic conversion using a User Exit would be the best option.

      If this case is for few customer's only then create new Order type and make it's Billing as Order Related one where from Sales Order UOM will be copied to Billing and at Delivery level you can play with the UOM's as maintained alternatively in MMR.

      In case you want billing to be happened Delivery related then in BADI LE_SHP_GOODSMOVEMENT apply the logic of changing the UOM at delivery level where alternative UOM will be picked and replaced by the existing UOM.

      Lemme know your findings please. Thanks and have a good day ahead.

    Hi Carlos,

    I am not really understand your problems as you can easily done this by Unit of Measure conversion.

    Create Material "Material1" and maintain Basic Uom as "KG" which will be treated as SKU by default by SAP.Also maintain Sales Unit as BAR and maintain the Uom conversion in material master Additional Data.

    In this way SO, Delivery & Billing will be done by Uom "BAR" and as you have maintained the SKU means basic Uom as KG, the Material Document posting will be done at KG also you can check the stock KG as well as BAR.

    So no need for ABAP intervention for this.Do let me know what are the problem you are facing by it.

    Hope this will help you.

    Thanks,

    Suman$

    • Dear Deep,

      I have not mention this in my post.

      Can you please explain how with SAP standard configuration can be get different unit of measure in delivery and billing document,

      Please read my post once again what I told that is;

      In this way SO, Delivery & Billing will be done by Uom "BAR"

      If you read the entire thread you can visualize the scenario where now the entire requirement is changed where Carlos mentioned that 1 BAR = 200 KG as well as 198 KG.

      I also do not know that it can be changed to what extend.My post is based on his very first question which as per me suits his requirement.

      I hope this clears you about my post.If you have any queries do let me know.

      Thanks,

      Suman$

    Hi SD Gurus, and thanks for your replies,


    Sudhanshu and Ammarah had partially right. In fact, It´s necessary to modify the print documents, not only for the Delivery but also in the Invoice. Aditionally, another possibility came out and basically consists in addition a new Condition Type for the Invoice pricing Procedure. That means that a "Discount or Surcharge Condition" will be entering manually in the Invoice, determining whether is necesary or isn´t to do the adjust. Remember that the problem was basically that 1 BAR not always will be equivalent to 1 TON and sometimes it could weight 0,980 TON, and this is the correct Price to bill but not to send to client, this one is paying 1 BAR and not the 0,980 or 1TON.


    Thanks again for your suggestions,


    Regards,

      Hi Carlos i want to ask you a question for official document numbering in peru and chile i know moderators it may not be the right place but there is no other way i can ask him directly and i am in real need to get the answer, please let me post my question.

      having limited number of items per delivery i can get that base on line items but i want to know if i have required quantity in one line item which is permitted for one form how can i achieve the functionality.

      for example if i have mentioned in copy control data transfer routine 11 that after 10 items i need to print delivery document on next official document number, system does that but if one item has more than 10 quantity and in delivery it has 10 different serial numbers it does not do that.

      please guide me in the right direction.

      regards

      sam
